This is a bell made for a Golden Eagle by Otto Kals of Germany around 1960. Otto gave this bell to Marion Dawson, wife of Mike Dawson secretary of the Hawking Club of Great Britain as decoration to hang in the pram of her young son. Later it was given to me along with Mike's Golden Eagle "Ivan" The craftsmanship and quality of this bell is outstanding although I have never used it for its original purpose.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
