This is a very functional ship's bell, but it also makes a great gift. It comes in a very nice, lined box that gives it a very personal touch when giving it as a gift. For functionality, the bracket is a separate mount so that the bell can be stowed while underway but easily hung in the event of fog.

Extreme "pitting" that will not polish out

Sounds great, looks nice but it does not perform like a true nautical brass bell should. There is pitting even after regular polishing year round.

                  Comments about Ships Bells:

                  Within a year the bell started to pit and most of the brass plating on the bracket corroded and was gone. Not what is expected for a marine product. Packaging is extremely well done and would lead you to believe the product is top quality but that is not the case.

                  I purchase this bell for a brewery taproom. Cant even hear the bell except for a little "tink" that sounds like tapping on an aluminum can.
