Animal bells5 families
Called "Chamonix" or "Bagne", they originally come from the Alpine valleys. The Obertino foundry also sells these bells for cattle, which produce a deeper sound than bronze bells. More and more farmers are choosing to mix bronze bells and steel bells in the same herd. The biggest are called "toupins". These are large Swiss forged steel bells used for Swiss high mountain pasture folklore. A tradition which makes a dramatic comeback in the Alps and the French Jura.
