Bronze Ship Bell | Naval Bronze Bell
Surrounded on three sides by water, it is no surprise that Turkey's maritime history is probably the most significant in history. An astounding quantity of hte world's cargo passes through the Bosphorus, on its way to and from ports all over the world. It should come as no surprise then, that we happened across a large collection of Russian ship bells on our last trip. Rendered of solid bronze, and with a heft that clearly delineates their industrial past, each has a tone all its own. One ring, and it's easy to picture an old ship out at sea in the fog, coming into port, ringing its bell to warn other ships of its path.
