Ring in the new year with a fantastic vintage brass ship bell! This bell has a distinct weathered look to it, as do many salvaged brass nautical items. Fitted with a wooden stand for the bell to move back and forth freely, this ship bell makes for an intriguing addition to your nautical decor! Perhaps you could use this on a salesroom in your business office, or retail store! Others may choose to use this bell as purely decoration, instead of utilizing the functional use of the bell – either is fine with us!
This brass bell with stand measures 42 inches tall and 18 inches wide. The bell is unpolished. It weighs 55 pounds.
Unlike civilian clock bells, the strikes of a ship’s bell do not ring for each hour, on the hour. Instead, there are eight bells, one for each half-hour of a four-hour watch.
