Ship's Bells were originally used to signal the passage of time during a typical four-hour watch that was
stood by members of the ship's crew.
The bell would then be rung every half hour, so after the passage of the
first half hour the bell would be rung once, after the first hour it would be rung twice, etc.
At the end of four hours, the bell would be rung eight times, and then a new shift of crew members would take
over the watch and repeat the same pattern by ringing the bell once after the passage of their first half
hour of standing watch.
We are pleased to offer eight different sizes of these handsome solid brass Ship's Bells.
All of the fully functional Ship's Bells come with a braided rope and each produces a loud, pure tone.
These bells are perfect for mounting on a powerboat or sailboat, outside on a porch, or even in your office.
