The decorative work on this bell is comparable to an example in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (acc. no. M.194-1938) and may be from the same workshop. It is likely the work of a Venetian or Paduan craftsman and dates from ca. 1500-1550. Included are the arms of the Strozzi family and the initial B.S. possibly a reference to Bernardo Strozzi (1581-1644).
Bell is decorated with swags of fruits and leaves and allegorical horned faces.
