Wallace Silversmiths 1978 Silver Sleigh Bell Christmas Ornament, Eighth in a Limited Edition of the annual series of highly collectible silverplate bell ball ornaments. There is a raised design festive band that features a lovely Christmas rose and leaves around the center band, and the date “1978”. The bell is marked at the bottom “Wallace, 1978” 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.
The paper tag card says “Symbolic of the miracle of Christmas, the legendary Christmas Rose encircles the 1978 Bell in a raised motif. Joy and hope for the world is the timeless message it brings you. A lifetime treasure. This Annual Edition will not be repeated.”
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. The buyer may want to polish the decoration a little more.
The original box as well as the outer cardboard sleeve, and the paper tag card are also included. The box and card are in excellent condition, with a little bit of edge and corner wear and a little bit of soil on the box and on the cardboard sleeve. This 1978 Wallace Silversmiths bell is product number 610651.
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.
