From signage at Mission San Diego: “The crown-topped bell on the lower right is named Ave Maria Purisima – Immaculate Mary. It weighs 805 pounds and was case in 1802. A crown-topped bell was usually supplied by the Spanish King and cast in the royal foundry in Barcelona at the King’s expense or made in a country ruled by Spain.”
I’ll have to start paying more attention – that implies that every Mission will have a crown-topped bell.
“The bell on the lower left is called Mater Dolorosa – Our Lady of Sorrows. It weighs 1,200 pounds and was recast by the Standard Iron Works of San Diego in 1895 from bell fragments found in the vicinity of the Mission.”
