US Navy Bell Pre WW II with History
PRE WW II
WITH UPPER AND LOWER BANDS
Based on its design, we date the bell to around the time of World War One (WW I). The original inverted vertical "J" bracket is missing and has been replaced with our proprietary brushed aluminum bracket. This allows the bell to be mounted as it was on a pedestal or deck, hence they are known as anchor or foredeck bells.
Top: Left side of bell Bottom: Right side of bell
AUTHENTICITY: The bell has been mounted on a rectangular hard wood base for display with our proprietary brushed aluminum bracket and turks’ head bell rope. It comes complete with all its original parts which include the mil-spec clapper and special one piece combined nut and washer. Many of the Navy bells that have survived are missing these unique parts. The inside of the bell shows numerous clapper strikes around its circumference showing it was used at sea.
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 or foreign imports to have this special characteristic ringing because "bell metal" is a specially formulated bronze alloy, unique to the Navy for their specialized use.
