A French vintage handmade goat bell and harness. Bent wood harness with hand-hammered metal bell and bone clapper. The neck harness is painted bright red and bears the carved initials BF just above the closure. It's fastened by a wood post drawn through two wooden pegs, and loops through a simple metal strap over the straight sided bell. The old bell has a rich, warm brown patina. An old bone serves as the clapper. Wonderful color and texture throughout this decorative piece.
