Bell - Brass - Mid 20th century
U.S.

VERY RARE SINGLE PART, BRASS BELL FROM AN ANTIQUE NAVY SHIP, A PAIR OF STYLISED DELPHINE FLANKS, THE BELL HAS A BEAUTIFUL, LOUD AND CLEAR RING

This bell is a real addition for the entrance of a marina, country house or restaurant.
The ship’s bell should serve as an insignia for submarines in the US Navy.

Minimal signs of wear and tear, it has some cosmetic flaws (it can be lightly polished, we did not do this to maintain its antique flair.)

It measures approx. 42 x 37 x 21 cm and weighs approx. 12.5 kg. The bell itself is approx. 16 cm tall and has a diameter of 16 cm.

Brass or bronze
The metal value alone is €80.
