Most New Yorkers have fond memories of traipsing through the famous Howe Caverns. Most New Yorkers also have memories of exiting through the gift shop and grabbing a souvenir to bring home.
This vintage bell is one of the items that was sold at the Howe Caverns gift shop and graced the shelves of someone’s home for decades. By the looks of it, once it was put on the shelf, it was never moved. There are no chips, cracks, splits or even fading of the imprinted artwork.
I’m confident that this bell isn’t brand new, but it certainly is in that kind of condition!
