Looks like Barwell's foundry mark to me, although fig 67 on p22 of 
CB.Herefordshire has only one "J.B." in the shield with a "B" below. No 
doubt CJP can confirm!

Subject: [Bell Historians] Identification assistance

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
http://photos.yahoo.com/csz_stl@swbell.net 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. :-)
