The liturgy is changing back to the way we used to do it in the last century and the servers will need to ring the bells at Consecration. Our padre asked me if I could make a holder using the old bells from the original church in 1956. They were stored in a box and tarnished and all green looking. They cleaned up pretty good and found a new home in this oak holder. They are screwed to headed brass inserts in the wood ring. The ring is a sandwich of two parts to hide the inserts.
The material is red oak and they are finished with Deft semi gloss lacquer.
The last picture is the padre, Fr Godfrey, with the new bells ready for use!
