Bells of Sarna

I have this small brass bell that belonged to my father. It, along with a second bell, were in our house in Manalapan for as long as I can remember.

Today, I was looking at the bell and noticed that it was marked "Bells of Sarna" on the inside of the bell.

Curious, I did a bit of research to find out what that meant. I found this article at the American Bell Association's Bell Talk site:

Sarna is not a place in India, but rather the name of the man who imported bells from several locations and resold them here in the states. The Bells of Sarna began in the late 1930's.
