Queen Mother Bell

This delightful little bell was made by the Whitechapel bell foundry. It was sitting in one of their display cabinets when I spotted it on one of my regular visits. It bears the inscription 'To celebrate the life of her majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother 1900-2002.' It was the only one they made. They agreed to sell it to me and it sits proudly among the other inmates in my collection.
