II U.S. NAVY FOREDECK AKA
WW II Polished & Lacquered
Presented is a Circa
World War Two (WW II) U.S. Navy "Foredeck" bell which comes with a fancy macramé bell rope, and is mounted on an oval
hardwood stand. It has its original clapper and inverted "J" bracket and the special combined one piece nut and washer that
secures the clapper and the bell to its bracket. All these are features of an authentic U.S. Navy bell. These bells
were polished when in Navy service and that is how we offer them.
NOW HARD TO FIND:
U.S. Navy bells of this unique design are becoming very scarce, and exceedingly difficult to find. The ones
from WW II and earlier, like this one, are scarcer still.

RING WITH DISTINCTION:There is nothing comparable to the sound of a Navy bell. The use of a special "bell metal"
formula produces a clear, sharp ring and sets up a strong reverberation that has a strong resonance that once heard will
never be forgotten. Cheap imitations can never achieve this distinctive ring because "bell metal" is a specially formulated
bronze alloy, unique to the Navy for this highly specialized use.
