If you are looking for ship bells then you have come to the right place. Handcraftedmodelships.com is a premium provider of all things nautical, including ship bells. We at Handcrafted Model Ships recognize the history and significance of ship’s bells, and take that into account with every single one that we produce. Ships bells are typically brass made, with an engraving of the ship’s name on it. The cook aboard the ship would usually be tasked with maintaining the shine of the ships bell. The striking of the ship’s bell is indicative of the time, and is used to keep the sailors aboard on time for duties. A ship’s bell uses a system of eight bells, each bell signifying half-hour intervals on a sailor’s four hour watch. At every half-hour, the ship’s bell is struck in a series of pairs to make counting easier. At Handcrafted Model Ships, you will be able to find authentic examples of ships bells that are quality made, and available for lower than retail prices.

History and Importance

Ship bells are steeped in naval tradition and have many uses. For one, the ship’s bell is commonly used to baptize children. Following the baptism, the children would have their names engraved on the bell. The importance of the ship’s bell is still seen today. Whenever a ship is past its prime and broken up, the ship’s bell becomes a keepsake. Furthermore, the ship’s bell is used as a tool for identification if a ship is wrecked at sea.
