The earliest archaeological evidence of bells dates from the 3rd millennium BC, and is traced to the Yangshao culture of Neolithic China. Early bells played a prominent cultural role. Historically, bells have been associated with religious rituals, and are still used to call communities together for religious services. Later, bells were made to commemorate important events or people and have been associated with the concepts of peace and freedom. The study of bells is called campanology.
This vintage bell is a souvenir from the state of West Virginia. A great gift for vintage-loving residents of the Mountain State.
