Description: A very rare track official's bell from the XI Olympic Games in Berlin 1936. The cast cast steel bell bears a national eagle grasping Olympic rings, an image of the Brandenburg Gate and dates '1. - 16. August 1936' in relief. The lower edge of the bell is surrounded by the inscription 'Ich rufe die Jugend der Welt!' ('I call upon the youth of the the world - 11th Olympic Games Berlin') Large screw-mounted suspension ring and iron clapper with remains of a leather loop. Height about 23 cm. A significant Olympics piece, this bell was used by track officials to signal that last lap of a race, possibly including Jesse Owens' historic victories.
