Authentic Buoy Bell Chesapeake with Choice of Wind Catcher
North Country Wind Bells
The Great Chesapeake Bay, formed by a glacier 10,000 years ago; wildlife habitat and home to generations of watermen and women who depend on the bay for their livelihoods. The Chesapeake Bell commemorates life, work and play on the bay, for all those whose safety means hearing the clear tones of a bell buoy. The maker of these bells was a New England lobster-man for many years. He recorded actual bell and gong buoys and cut the steel to match the tones reminiscent of each location. These bells are crafted with a high-grade steel and powder coated with an outside durable finish to endure the weather for years to come. With long term exposure to weather, it will develop a rich rusty color, but will not rust out. You can apply a black outside spray paint on the bell to keep it looking new for years. The bells are designed to hang outdoors year-round, without twisting, tangling, or breaking. The bells can be silenced by pushing the clapper up into the pyramid.
