Personalised Cow Bells ..?

As a gift for somebody leaving the country. Where to get them made fairly cheaply? Name printed engraved? .

Have searched and found a couple who will make the bell from scratch and personalise but prices are up around the 1k mark.. So thinking more an off the shelf bell with a little extra added .. Know anybody who can do that?

Preferably in the Geneva to Montreux type region.

A bit further, but so much cheaper

Look on this website for 'clarines'

Also look at Ricardo under 'cloches et sonailles' - plenty there and then get engraved. Google 'graveur' + your location.

Here is a bell foundry in Switzerland. http://www.fonderie-blondeau.ch/contact.htm
It is in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
We have had a few bells made here and they were always good quality and payable.
