We still instinctively react to the unmistakable sound of a traditional Solid Brass Ships’ Bell. They’ve been used for centuries aboard to signal the progress of the quarterdeck watch. There’s nothing like its clear tone to evoke the romance of the sea. Brass clapper with a plaited Sennit (the traditional fabric bell rope). Brass wall mount included. Call the meeting to order with style. Get ‘em to the table fast with this dinner gong. A special gift for any salty dog. The smallest of the three is 5½" wide at the bottom. The 7" one is considerably larger and the largest 8" size is very substantial. Weights are 3 lbs, 5 lbs and 7 lbs respectively, so you know they’ll resonate beautifully. All three are hand made and simply beautiful.

    Barb Thomas, 12/8/2017 Purchased the 8" Brass Bell & it's absolutely gorgeous. The tone is amazing & we are very pleased with our purchase.
  • Awesome door bell

    Darren , 10/26/2017 The bell looks great mounted outside front door. A clear sound is heard with little effort...it will last and last!
  • Beautiful ship's bell

    Jay W Smith, 4/25/2017 I got a 7" bell. It is beautifully finished and has great tone. Perfect for our seaside location. I'm ringing all guest aboard much to their delight. Was a little challenge to mount, but found the right screws and with a little alteration is a fine installation.
  • Great tone and workmanship

    David Jensen, 12/27/2016 Fast shipping. Bell was as described in catalog. Appears well made with good tone. Matching brass fasteners would of been nice but does not take away from workmanship of the 7" bell
  • Happy tones

    Mike, 12/20/2016 Item was exactly what I expected. Made a delightful gift
  • A Bit of Necessary Whimsy

    Chris, 12/9/2016 Looks well made and has a solid ring to it. We mounted the 7" at home bar and it's a hit. Good tone, not too high or low. Four stars for making me go find matching screws bright brass screws that fit. At this price, those should be included without question. Otherwise it's a great purchase and will last forever.
  • A Beautiful, Heavy-Duty Bell

    Timothy Mann, 12/2/2016 I received my 5 1/2 inch bell yesterday and am very well pleased. It is beautiful. The quality is excellent and the tone immediately conjures images of being on a ship. I plan to mount the bell on the right side of my entry door above the house numbers to use as a door bell. Sadly, the bell does not come with mounting screws. This was surprising and disappointing to me. I'll have to make a trip to the hardware store before I can mount the bell. Still, I highly recommend the bell.
  • Great

    D. Holden, 11/16/2016 My son-in-law wanted a bell to call in my grandchildren. He saw this bell in the GW catalog. Since him and I share an enjoyment of all the items we have purchased from GW , this was only bell to get. Looks great sounds great.
  • Bells

    Grace, 11/4/2016 Love bells. My mom used to ring one when I was a kid to gather her thirteen children.
  • Ships ahoy!

    Jill, 6/24/2016 Bells are symbolic gifts in our household and this one is exceptional in tone and style. A hard to find item and a perfect doorbell for those who wish to remain at sea on dry land.
  • Solid Brass ship's bell

    Chris Vogt, 5/30/2016 Love It! We bought it for a young couple whose wedding was held in a "Farm/Barn" venue complete with dinner bell. We had the bell engraved and it was perfect.The Wedding bell will be ringing for years to come!
  • Questionable workmanship where clapper attaches to bell. Not strong enough to support weight.

    N. Brunskill, 5/8/2016 When opening bell there were signs that bell had been opened and clapper rope was dirty. The Bell clapper would not screw into bell because the threads on screw were stripped from previous owner. it was sent to us broken. Bell is beautiful but has a questionable clapper attachment and how well it will hold up with use. Returned and will not repurchase.

  • What notes do these resonate?

    TreeTreeTree, 2/14/2016 It is good to know the physical sizes and weights of these bells.
    The missing information for the deeper, more resonant human being is:
    What musical note sounds when struck?
    Is the set of three harmonized, or not?
    GW, please consider posting this information.
    Thank you.

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on the Solid Brass Bells! We will pass this information along for consideration.
  • None Bell and All Is Well

    John O, 2/2/2015 Excellent quality and tone. Can wait for a good fog.
  • No-Fail Beauty

    Mary Steele, 1/11/2015 We've tried hard-wired and wireless door bells and something always fails. This bell is not only gorgeous and the highest quality, it never fails! Loud, clear deep tone that we can hear from either floor and even from our barn 100 yards away. So pleased with the quality; Looks and sounds beautiful!
  • Sounds Awesome!

    Rene Wimberley, 12/11/2014 I have always wanted a bell, so I took a chance and ordered two of the 7 and one 5" one for me, one for my sister and one for my friend. When I received them...WOW they are so beautiful and solid! The sound echoes for a few seconds after you ring it. My husband and I love it and I am very happy to give these for Christmas presents this year. The bell will be pasted down for generations because it is made very high quality. Can't wait to put install it on my porch. Very cool!"
