New to the site. I also have a Baltimore Plow Company bell.
Bell diameter 21 3/4"
Across cradle 28"
Wall thickness approx. 1/2".
Name of company and (size/style?) No. E located around bell skirt, cradle and initialed across yoke (BP E Co.)
There is a lot more rust on one side of the bell compared to the other side. The top of the cradle has a piece broke off of it but no other damage or repairs noted. Clapper is intact.
I have a little info on the company I found while researching the bell, but want to know if this bell is considered a Roland Farm Bell? I can't find specific information on the Roland bells but have found where they were at least sold by the Baltimore Plow Co. along with "chilled" Roland plows.
Also, if anyone has an idea what this bell is worth I would greatly appreciate the info. I have several more pictures if wanted.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!
If you would like the info I have, just let me know and I'll post what I have. Please note that this information was obtained by me through the internet. I tried to verify the info the best I could but cannot guarantee that it is all correct but it may help connect some dots!!!!
