Cleaning the bell

After a wash with plain old water all I did was to remove a small amount of rust from the headstock with fine wire wool and then again with soft wire wool I cleaned and polished the bell with autosol, a non abrasive metal cleaner recommended by Whitechapel for the cleaning of handled bells and musical handbells. The bell now has a delightful grey colour. Now I shall ponder long on how best to display the bell for occasional ringing and where to put it.
