US Navy Bell Vietnam Era and later Aluminium Bracket

 

VERY RARE U.S. NAVY FOREDECK BELL Ca. 1950 & After

US Navy bell Vietnam Era and later on new aluminium inverted J bracket image

Newly Fabricated Inverted Aluminum Bracket

 

Presented is a post WW II Navy and military bell that is mounted on a newly made WW II style inverted "J" foredeck bracket. The bracket was fabricated by our shop in aluminum as a substitute for the cast brass brackets of the same shape which were the original. At this point in time, WW II and later Navy bells and brackets are near impossible to find so we designed this substitute. This one has a brushed finish, but we can provide a Powder Coating in a variety of colors on special order. Contact us for the details and ordering.

The special shape with the raised letters make this bell distinctive and worthy of inclusion in any US Military collection. It has been mounted on a custom hard wood stand for display, and a proper three strand bell rope of the period is included. The bell comes complete with all its original mil-spec parts which sets it apart from other bells of this genre.

HARD TO FIND: U.S. Navy bells are now near impossible to find, and increasingly difficult to keep in stock. The vertical bracket allows them to be mounted on a pedestal or deck, hence they are known as anchor or foredeck bells.

SPECIAL NAVY FORMULA BELL METAL: The tone of an authentic Navy bell, made using a special "bell metal" formula is not easily forgotten. It has a strong resonance and vibration that rings sharp and clear with a distinctive sound. Do not expect cheap imitations to have this special characteristic ringing because "bell metal" is a specially formulated bronze alloy, unique to the Navy for their specialized use.

THIS BELL HAS BEEN RECENTLY POLISHED AND LACQUERED FOR YOUR LASTING ENJOYMENT

DIMENSIONS:

BELL: Diameter of crown 5 1/2"  Diameter mouth  9 1/2" Height to crown 6"                 Neck add 3 1/2"   Height on stand 17"  WOOD STAND: 14" L x 11" W x 3/4" T             Total Weight: 24 1/2 pounds 

CONDITION: Its inside shows the marks of the original clapper hitting the edge and flattening it which indicates that this bell has served at sea. There casting roughness surrounding the letters, but most of the bell is smooth and free of imperfections. The bracket was fabricated to our design to replace the original WW II style brass bracket.
