In Burma, the tradition of blacksmithing has always been an honoured occupation associated with courage, strength and
integrity. The Burmese excelled at bronze casting using the lost wax method or cire perdue and their handsome decorated
bronze bells have long attracted the interest of visitors to Burma and collectors of Southeast Asian antiques.
This bell is a late 19th century buffalo or cattle bell from Mandalay, Burma known as hka-lauk. Cast in bronze, it is
decorated with a scrolling design on both sides. This style/design(Burmese/upper Thailand/Lower Laos) is really getting
harder to find.The bronze has a lovely patina.
