Victorian Church Bell Wheel

This oak Bell Wheel is a first for us.  We just loved how beautifully it is made and its form.

"The full-circle bell is hung from bearings at the headstock and can be swung through an arc of over 360 degrees using a rope wrapping round a circular bell wheel in alternate directions. This allows the speed of the bell to be changed, by controlling the arc of the swing. The larger the arc, the slower the rate of striking." Wikipedia.

Lovely natural patina with a tiny amount of damage.  We love this mounted as an interesting artefact.
