Our Vintage Brass and Stainless Russian Alarm Bell is a genuine piece of maritime history that has been utilized to alert crew members of potential hazards during voyages. These bells were positioned throughout the ship, adhering to universal maritime standards, and were equipped with a range of alarm signals. For example, a general alarm would consist of seven short alarm rings, followed by one long ring, while a fire alarm would trigger continuous ringing.
This particular vintage alarm bell features a small faceplate with Russian characters. The housing is made of stainless, while the bell is solid. The overall condition is good, with some surface wear from actual use on a vessel.
*While the working condition of the bell is not verified, it is sure to be a great addition to any collection or vintage décor. Some customers have reported to us that they were able to restore it to ring again. It is a stunning piece that is sure to be a conversation starter and a real focal point in your home.*
