I have several Disney bells in my collection. Most of them are of the ceramic variety with printed images on them. Tinker Bell seems to be a reoccurring character on Disney bells.
Perhaps it is because the tinkling of a bell was the chosen ‘language’ of the fairies in the original movie Peter Pan? Quite possible.
This post features a beautiful brass bell with a striking figure of Tinker Bell standing in leaves atop the bell housing:
The casting depicts Tinker Bell’s big hips perfectly but misses the facial features quite profoundly.
I love this profile because it reminds me of the vintage car hood ornaments of the 1920’s and 1930’s. Most notably I see a basic similarity between Tink and The Flying Lady of Rolls Royce fame.
The bell stands about 3″ tall with the base of the bell housing being just under 1″ in diameter.
Inside the rim where the clapper is attached are the words ‘Walt Disney Productions’ but there is no other manufacturing details imprinted on the bell.
After searching eBay I found the ever-present claim of ‘rare’ attached to almost ever one of the many listings for this bell. The pricing ranges from $15.00 – $20.00 USD.
