About this object

Bell; a small hand-bell with its handle cast in the shape of a swan inside a wreath. The clapper consists of a short piece of metal rod tied on with string.

The bell belonged to James McLay (1872-1956), who ran a boot shop in Owaka from about 1924 onwards. The bell lived on the counter and was used by customers when James was out the back doing repairs. After James died, at the age of 84, his son Walter took over the business.
