Very nice!

If you would like to the sound please email me. We can add a new sound post or add it to the existing Dinner bells - images and audio post.

That's awesome! I actually have a candy dish with a Seahorse. It's modern (German) I'll try and post a picture.

Nice seahorse candy dish, asheland! (Nice books, too!)

I emailed Scott a video of the bell ringing, so (assuming I did it right) he should be able to share the sound.

we can't talk about silver seahorses without a mention of carl schon's seahorse jewelry. some of his seahorses are extremely realistic and probably cast from life. earlier pieces are better and marked with a CS mark (there are a couple variations). later pieces are smaller and less detailed and marked CARL SCHON INC.

in general, schon's earlier jewelry can be pretty amazing.

Whenever I hear a bell it is hard not to think about Jimmy Stewart's movie "It's a Wonderful Life". Great sound.
