    Ship Bell?

    A friend purchased a Bell with some corrosion on it. It's about fifteen pounds, made of bronze.
    The inscription on it reads....CANCSELECUER FONDEUR 1878 with a crest of a eagle with the
    wings down and has a Spanish cross on it. The top of it has a square hole where it was used to mount it.
    We don't know if it was a school house or a ship bell. I know this is probably useless without a photo
    but any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Bill

    You need to check the spelling of the first word.

    Do yo see the word "Saignelégier"

    That bell came along way. Here are some more links.

    Apparently the second word on your bell means "Foundry"
