Brass Ships Bell 10cm

Make your home into a captain's headquarters with this ship's brass bell.

This ship's bell is suitable for inland, coastal and smaller craft or land based applications.

Ship’s bells were introduced in the Age of Sail as a way for the crew to mark time. A watch-keeper would strike the bell every half hour and provided the structure around which the ship’s day was organised.

HMS Belfast’s current bell can be seen hanging on the Quarterdeck below ‘Y’ Turret, and is still rung regularly for ceremonial purposes.

Bell includes screws and 17cm bell ring. 10cm in diameter.
