Wallace Silversmiths 1980 Silver Sleigh Bell Christmas Ornament, Tenth in a Limited Edition of the annual series of highly collectible silverplate bell ball ornaments. There is a raised design festive band that features lovely Christmas candles and holly leaves around the center band, and the date “1980”. The bell is marked at the bottom “Wallace, 1980” and has the Wallace trademark symbol.
This highly collectible bell ornament measures about 8 1/4” in circumference all the way around the middle. There is a metal ring going through a post on top for hanging the bell decoration. It measures about 2 1/2” tall including the post on top (not including the ring). The bell makes a lovely ringing sound.
I do Not have the original box or the paper tag card for this silver plate bell ornament.
It is in excellent vintage condition, with very minor use scratches that you would expect in an item that was lovingly used over the years. There are a few very tiny spots under and around the center seam band, and I think these were maybe done in manufacturing (not sure?), and I have included an example close-up photograph for you to review. The buyer may want to polish the decoration a little more.
This popular Wallace Silversmiths collectible bell ball shaped ornament came from a private collection, and I am offering many more hard-to-find bells from this annual Christmas bell series for sale as separate items (some with original box and card certificate), so please check my store for more vintage Wallace bell ornaments.
