PRE WW II Polished &
Lacquered Bell

 

Presented
is an authentic US Navy Anchor bell that was made prior to WW II with the coverted U.S. N. marking.  It comes
with a a inverted aluminum “J” bracket of our own design that has been powder coated, haze gray, and a fancy macramé
bell rope. The display is mounted on an Ebony coated hardwood stand. It has its original clapper and and the special
combined one piece nut and washer which is only found on authentic Navy bells.

NOW IMPOSSIBLE
TO FIND:
U.S. Navy bells of this unique design are now almost impossible to find. The earlier bells with the unique
beads near the top of the crown and the near the mouth date the bell to before WW II. Those marked U.S.N. are scacer
still.

NAVY BELLS
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.
