Liberty Bell hood ornament - Sesquicentennial celebration - 1920s antique
Antique Liberty Bell automobile hood ornament from the 1920s. Brass bell plated with nickel, most likely. Used to celebrate the Sesquicentennial. Marked on both sides, the patent dates have worn off.
We know it came from the 1920s because it came from a lifelong bell collector who labeled it as having been on "the boy's old Metz car" from Waltham, MA.
SIZE 5.25" tall, 4.75" diameter
CONDITION Good condition. The plating has worn off in places. Inside the bell, there is a partial piece of the apparatus that would have held it on the car.
This is a vintage item. It has been used and loved and it has a history. Every attempt is made to describe it accurately, please examine photos carefully.
