2 1/2 Wooden Walnut Bells on Ebay
« on: January 27, 2017, 02:58:17 PM »
Have others seen these wood Walnut bells ?  I have only seen a few sets of these over the years. (I have a set) The bid is low to me, at $31 as of now.  Sorry I don't know how to post a link to the site, but the number is 182431006647     

I have seen and have glass bells too.

What would these have sounded like? A squirrel cracking a couple acorns? A woodpecker in a tree? I can't imagine they would have much volume. They were their own resonator, so to speak.

Woodpecker is a good description, annoying is another  that comes to mind.
