This Fine Bell Has Been Sold, THANK YOU!
ROYAL NAVY BELL
PRESENTED is an authentic Royal Navy ships bell with
a large cast in Broad Arrow on its front, and the handsomest hand made bell rope that we have seen in years. There are no
foundry marks or other imprints on the bell, but the regal crown on top and its Broad Arrow mark attest to its use and origin.
You can tell this is the real McCoy by it nicely sculptured cone shape, good wall thickness, and clapper marks on the
inside, and outside of the rim. It has a good solid ring to it with a sharp sound. The
bell was formerly on display in a museum. By the way, bell ropes such as this may be
purchased today and cost around $200.00.
Crown top Royal Navy bells may date as far back as the 1700's.
There is a picture shown below of the bell from the HMS Royal George which was one of the earliest.

This is a handsome bell in excellent condition, It has nicely polished exterior and a dark brown patina inside. The clapper
is a large bronze ball with a fancy rope attached and is detachable. On some warships, a bell was used to sound
an alarm, and the dents on the outside rim are believed to have been made during this use.
