This bell is made to slide onto and hang from Santa's belt, like a knife sheath, with enough leather between the belt and the bell to act as a handle. The bell will jingle gently when you walk, but can also be rung by hand for a louder, attention-getting sound.
The antique "petal" bell on this piece is 2" to 2 1/4" across (our XL to 2XL size range). This is big enough to make a handsome statement and have a clear, carrying tone, but not so bulky and heavy that the bell is awkward to handle.
Why the range in sizes? I do not have many bells in this size range that sound good enough to be used alone, so I need some flexibility to find a bell with the best appearance and excellent tone. More about our bells...
We also offer this belt bell made with a new solid-brass bell at a lower cost. Click here for this version...
The leather belt loop is sized to fit belts up to 4 inches wide. It can be stamped with a name, word, or phrase with up to eight 3/8" characters long. (A space counts as a character.) For example, "Santa", "S Claus", "St Nick", "Believe", or any reindeer name including "Rudolph" will fit nicely, but there is not room for "Santa Claus".
The overall length of this piece is about 11". The leather strap itself is about 8" long.
