The German Wikipedia article about the composer Engelbert Humperdinck (1854-1921) has a photo of his birthplace, but no bells are visible there.

A page about the City Museum, which opened in 1990, indicates that it occupies the house which was the birthplace of the composer, but the bells are not mentioned.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Eijsbouts bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
