Full Description:
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.  We do not offer custom engraving for any of these solid brass Ship's Bells, but they can be hand engraved by a professional engraver.

Our smallest bell has a 2-inch (5.1 cm) diameter, is 2 3/8 inches (6 cm) tall, and weighs just 6 ounces (170 grams).  The 3-inch (7.6 cm) diameter bell is 3 inches (7.6 cm) tall and weighs 11.8 ounces (335 grams).  The 4-inch (10.2 cm) diameter bell is 4 inches (10.2 cm) tall and weighs 1 pound 8 ounces (680 grams).  The 6-inch (15.2 cm) diameter bell is 6 inches (15.2 cm) tall and weighs 4 pounds 6 ounces (1.98 kg).  The 9-inch (22.9 cm) diameter bell is 9 inches (22.9 cm) tall and weighs 12 pounds, 2 ounces (5.56 kg).  The large 12-inch (30.5 cm) diameter bell is 13 inches (33 cm) tall and weighs a heavy 32 pounds (14.5 kg).  The extra large 15-inch (38.5 cm) diameter bell is 16 inches (40.6 cm) tall and weighs a very heavy 45 pounds (20.5 kg).  Our largest ship's bell is 18 1/2 inches (47 cm) in diameter, 18 1/2 inches (47 cm) tall and weighs a very heavy 70 pounds (31.7 kilograms).  This ship's bell does not come with a wall mounting bracket.  Instead, a solid brass bow shackle is included for mounting the bell.  The solid brass mounting bracket is included with the purchase of any of the other seven Ship's Bell models.
