It has the same nicked edges, foundry marks, misspelled inscription and even the famous crack - all crafted to maintain the integrity of the Bell in every detail. Cast in traditional black bronze, the Bell measures12 inches in diameter and 11-1/2 inches height with crown. It is bolted to a handmade wooden yoke and wings on legs cast with filigree design that appears on the original mounting.
