Set consisting of two Cambodian bronze bells that used to be hung on the necks of elephants.
These bells were traditionally worn in groups of three, with a larger bell in the middle surrounded by two smaller ones.
The smallest measures 8 cm in height and 6.8 cm in diameter.
The largest measures 10 cm in height and 7 cm in diameter.
These bells are very rare and sought-after.
A metal ball is inside the bell and creates the sound.
Sold with their custom-made steel base.
Lost wax process, which makes each bell unique. Circa 19th century.
JEAN DUMOULIN'S TRAVEL DIARY
Since I deeply love elephants, I can't resist the urge to add these bells, even if they come from Cambodia...
Good condition, beautiful oxidized patinas surface, show traces of use, very subtle repair on the largest, see pictures.
They will be packed with care and sent with insurance and traceability via Bpost.
