A brief annotation
Broken before installation during the 1737 Kremlin fire, the Royal Bell has never been suspended or rung. Weighting over 200 tons, the artifact is the largest bell in the world. Its surface has been adorned with relief images of baroque angels, saints and life-size effigies of Tsar Alexey and Empress Anna, its funder. Today, this unique masterpiece of bell-founding art can become the pride of your numismatic collection.
