    I'll give the like even though your laughing at me....consider that like my flowers bro !! When I say common motif I mean across the spectrum....carving, painting, sculpture, architecture, furniture making....etc etc...and even some naval and military aspects also. The reason it's hard to find a match is because every artist will have his own creative freedom with that design element !! I know this because....I'm an artist too. So carry on my friend and find a ship name for us. I've added what I can, hope its helped a little in this mystery. I have my own treasure mysteries to chase that are much more important to me than this.....you know what I'm up too !! The effort it will take to pursue this will take money and time far beyond a google search at this point. This has been an armchair pursuit just for fun....skream1 will have to take it to the next level now....I've only tried to help by pointing out some places to continue the quest. It will take boots on the ground now for me so I'm out. No offense was meant my friend. Continue on and good luck to all parties interested....I'm off to fry my own fish......HEH !!

    Interesting. I think it would be so much better to have found on paper, a suggestion of a wreck location. In this case, I was not looking for the artifact at all. I was actually looking for something else and happened across something that caught my eye. I do have some background in wreck searching and location, and several degrees in history; which I enjoy as part of a hunt for something. This was ass backwards. And, no I don't know exactly what it is and which ship it came from. That said, in doing research and from reading material, even on this site, it seems that many people have their own agendas, so I'm very protective, but wish to get back and do some further investigation on site.

    The leaves may be Acanthus leaves, or Acacia and in some church symbolism mean immortality. I'd rather that the artifact was not so much church associated though, since that does not bode well for significant other finds. I have researched some cannons which were decorated with Acanthus leaves prior to the 1700s when such decoration was curtailed to streamline production during periods of war when more guns were needed. You might look at the Rochefort foundry in France to see some examples. I return to the site in the next couple of months for further exploration/investigation. And, yes, it would be nice to find the topper, although I suspect it was broken as the ship foundered.

    And I may be a frog.

    Three words.

    Figment of imagination.

    Unfortunately... even though this is "fall"... those are not leaves.

    Seems my words amongst the jibber have fallen upon deaf ears.

    Hence.

    If your real name is Kermit... then the answer is yes...

    Hey... btw... I am surprised to see that you have not weighed in on this thread at all.

    I know these sorts are not your speed,,, but obviously you have been a reader.

    Besides... I think this bell proves the Beale Code is real. lol :P

    Awww i'm sure Black will call or text. Someday.
    Anyway, what is your current opinion on the bell if I may ask.
    And what might it be worth? What someone would give for it, I guess. But what would you ask for it?

    So why can't you confirm or deny the dimensions of the bell that @Salvor6 posted a while back? That doesn't jeopardize anything that might justify being protective. And it lets the people here include or eliminate entire classes of bells.

    There are things you can replace. And others you cannot. The time has come to weigh those things. This space is getting hot. Whoa! This space is getting hot!

    Well, let that be a lesson in trying to help someone.
    "A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything." ó Friedrich Nietzsche

    "You ask where I live. I cannot tell you. I am a Voyageur, a Chicot, sir. I live everywhere. My grandfather was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."

    On a side note I'm currently delivering a yacht from NC to the Florida keys. I got to stay in one of the state rooms instead of the crew cabin this trip.....low and behold what do I see in the bathroom ? A marble soap dish with acanthus leaf motif.....still in use today so many years later. Still a common design theme !!
    Just ponder this..if it sank enroute...
    100 years from now a diver finds whats left of the wreck, these bathroom tiles, (and the soiled stateroom ) and claims a Roman Emperor Caligula wreck find off the Keys!!!!

    I do have some background in wreck searching and location, and several degrees in history; which I enjoy as part of a hunt for something. This was ass backwards.
    Several degrees in history, yet cannot ID a simple pattern

    This was ass backwards.
    Dont sell yourself short.

    And, no I don't know exactly what it is and which ship it came from.
    Its whats left of a ships bell.

    That said, in doing research and from reading material, even on this site, it seems that many people have their own agendas, so I'm very protective, but wish to get back and do some further investigation on site.
    Quite unlike yourself. Still cant bring it to yourself to provide dimensions of the bell? Oh the humanity and burden you must feel.....

    I canít identify it, but that is an incredible find and a very interesting piece of history.
