Old Cow Bell

In Pennsylvanian at my mother’s for a mini vacation and for thanksgiving. We were talking about an old cow bell she had from her great great grandfather’s farm, it is over 120 years old!

 As we were talking about the bell my mom said “Oh, I have this too”, it was an old bread maker used be my 2nd great grandmother Mary (Walters) Knaus (1860-1941). The front is embossed “ No. 4 Universal bread maker awarded gold medal St. Louis exposition 1904 made by Landers Frary & Clark New Britain Conn. U.S.A.”

All of these years and I never knew my mother had these! It was really neat to touch and see something that belonged to my ancestors.
