lovely!  I found some information on those somewhere recently when researching the opaline question - I'll try and rack my brains to remember what and where.
I think it was mentioned in conjunction with 'Nailsea type' - I'll post more if I remember.
The clappers were always pasted in apparently(IIRC) - did you know that?

nice bell Keith.           I wasn't aware of method of attaching the clappers................do you mean paste as in flour and water paste (starch paste), or was it some other form of paste? :)

It might have been plaster of Paris, as used to hold rims etc. on.

Certainly.... unusual Keith, and I understand why you needed it for your collection, but a it's a bit "eeeek" for me!

I'd agree, "paste" is more likely to be plaster of paris than flour, salt and water.

It obviously pays to read your book** first :-[
and the book says..............yes, it was plaster of paris, apparently  -  bells with coloured handles are less common  -  handles and bodies were two separate parts and joined with plaster of Paris  -  and bells with clappers don't seem to be more valuable than those without, but may be more desireable.
Keith - is your handle joined to the bell part with plaster of Paris

Very attractive Ivo - does it have its clapper  -  and what do you consider is the country of origin :)

No clapper and origin most likely Nailsea. I Found it in Dublin many years ago.
