Listing Detail Tabs

I found this old brass bell in Holland over 28 years ago from a collectables market.
It is possibly around 80 years old or more, but not sure.
It has been in storage for some time while I was overseas.


I found it fascinating and have always been intrigued about where it may have originated from. It has a complex and beautiful design.
Circumscibing the surface of the bell is the sentence " Salecnvos Bos Leo Seticanvs"
The 'N's in both instances are reversed which may mean something to someone out there.

Looking at the front of the bell is a winged egyptian ??? god, or mythical creature.

There is a dragon on the opposite end of the arm with the bell chain.

A wise man sits under an archway when viewed from the side.

The bell has ornate markings or carvings and has some black spots here and there due to age I would think, as does the dragon's head, and at the feet of the mythical creature.
To me it is part of the aging of this beautiful old bell.

It has a lovely musical sound when it is rung.

The fixing plate is 20cm long.
The length excluding the chain is 27cm.
The overall length including the chain is 53cm.
It comes without screws or nails for the fixing plate.

I am selling reluctantly because of planning to move once again.
