The most beautiful and wonderful of gifting ideas sometimes come in the most unusual ways. In this case, a bronze ship bell. This large Authentic Models hand made bell for an authentic feel with an added bronze finish gives the ideal feel of the original bronze ship bells that were used since the middle ages in the ships. It is said that ship bells were invented and used during the Bronze Age and hence the name. While, the utility of these bells were mainly required for alarming members of a forthcoming storm or signalling another ship during fog, there were other utilities of the ship bell too. The cook in the ship used it traditionally to call the crew for the meals at times.
While the utility at home of a bronze ship bell is limited, one could get creative about it. Here are some suggestions: Use it to call your kids for dinner, use it to alarm people of any rodent infestation in the house, it can be quite useful for older people alarming or calling for help by just adding a string mechanism to its already chunky hand knotted long lanyard. The most important utility could be giving your home that Victorian parlour feels or your lounge that eighteenth century vibe of a parlour filled with people socializing. It looks great even in ultra-modern homes because of its stylish finish and adds a hint of remembering one's own culture when decorating the room. The Authentic Models bells are also great for salons, spas, stores and motels to add class to your lounges and corridors.
