RAF Benevolent Fund Bell
RAF Benevolent Fund Bell.
This is a rare variant of the more common hand-bell, produced using aluminium alloy from German aircraft destroyed during World War II. It bears the heads of Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin in low relief. The handle bears a large 'V', again in low relief, on either side. Sale proceeds went to the RAF Benevolent Fund. This piece is one of the scarcer types, which I have not encountered before. The bell measures 15cms tall by 10cms across.
