A Good Large 18th Century Japanese temple bell, known as either a kin or rin in Japanese. The bell was hand hammered from one sheet of metal as were the older ones. The side of the bell contains a Kanji inscription and there looks to be some old worn decoration of a dragon around the top edge it can still just be seen with a good eye. The sound of this example is enchanting and the unending reverberation just goes on and on. A fine antique example from a recent large collection we have purchased.
