I am currently chasing the National Museum of Ireland to see if I can 
use photographs of St Patrick's Bell and the Bell of Armagh, but it 
would also be good to have some of the other pre-Conquest handbells, 
such as the one found in a pond at Marden, Herefordshire.

I also have photographs of a couple of the bells found at Nineveh, 
but as I do not know who owns the copyright of these picture, I 
cannot use them.

The photo you have of the bell at Stodmarsh contains an early example 
of black shoe decoration, unlike black letter it's quite a rarity in 
camapanalogical circles!
