Cleaning the bell

This bell is a challenge. I will have to get a frame to be able to ring and display it. First things first, it has to be cleaned and go somewhere. After checking out tips on cleaning bronze I settled for soap and water and good old elbow grease using Autosol metal cleaner. For a first go it's come up quite well. I first thought I would leave the bell on the porch outside my front door. Then sitting in my study where I keep my main bell collection I spotted a vacancy under my desk. That's where it can stay while I consider my next move. Must clean that mark on the carpet!
