Vintage Articulated Decorated Christmas Bell Pin
A vintage articulated decorated Christmas bell pin. A bright red metallic ribbon tied in a bow set on bright green metallic ivy holds an articulated gold tone metal Christmas bell which dangles below with an articulated clanging mechanism inside the bell which is decorated with a round clear multi-faceted rhinestone.
Bell ringing was associated with religion due to St. Patrick in Ireland ringing a bell to gather the local townspeople for services. This bell ringing and it's symbol was lent to the Christmas holiday where local churches will ring bells at midnight Christmas Eve.
This pin has a condition issue with some loss of finish on the red bow and it measures approx. 2" x 2-1/2".
