"Can anyone help me with information about this antique bell. I am pretty sure it is Japanese. Acquired from Japan in the late 50s or early 60s. I would love to know what is written on it and if it has any significance or meaning.…"
I live & work in Tokyo with my Japanese wife and we run a small English Conversation school. I have collected various things since I was a child and now specialize in Japanese antiques, ancient coins and foreign coins, antique photography and other photographic images, vintage knives, vintage running & basketball shoes, rare books and other interesting collectibles. I sell on several sites at present, with my favorites being Bonanzle, Atomic Mall, & Blujay in that order. Check out my items by going to my Squidoo Lens, which I have provided a link to below! Hope to meet other nice people here on this site & have interesting chats about antique items & other collectibles! Happy New Year in 2009 to all! Cheers! Greg(Swims)
