What makes this bell significant is that it's an artifact confirming that people at that time had a deep desire for a Macedonian country that they identified their home as Macedonia.

Another interesting observation is that the bell maker spelled the name of Macedonia in Cyrillic as "МАКЕДОНИА", different from the modern Bulgarian/Serbian spelling.

And finally right below the word Macedonia is a star with 12 rays.

Niko, this is very interesting. It is from a village called Izvora. Where did you get the 1834 year?
