You are looking at a Vintage PERKO Stainless Steel Fog Bell. PERKO is the world’s largest and oldest manufacturer of marine hardware, navigation lights, and fog bells. About 1900, fog bells served as backups to foghorns for a while but were phased out completely by about 1920.
This bell is in beautiful condition! This would look great placed outside by a door or just nailed into a wall for decoration.
This item is being sold on consignment for a private collector from Cleveland. Every item has been well-preserved due to the owner’s deep love of nautical history. You’ll find some very interesting pieces in this collection – items that might not be found anywhere on the Internet!
