An antique leather strap with five casted bronze cow bells from the French Alps manufactured ca. 1900. Cow bells are used to locate cattles in the pasture. Cows wear them around their neck so owners can easily find them in the Alpine landscape. The richly decorated bells are used when the cows are brought into the barns for the winter. Good condition with patinated bronze finish - on one bell a piece is broken off. This authentic antique piece is a great home decoration and brings the Swiss countryside into your home.
