An Australian correspondent who found me through one of my Websites 
has asked for assistance in identifying an old bronze bell. He 
supplied five photos, which I have posted at under the album name 
"Australian bell". He reports that it weighs about 25 kilos. 
Apparently it has no inscription, but on the waist is a shield 
surrounded by a wreath. In the four quadrants of the shield are the 
letters J B J B. Based upon either this description or the style 
visible in the photos, who might have made this bell? (I doubt that 
it came from an American bellfoundry. :-)
