An antique sleigh bell fitted with a monogrammed leather handle is perfect for ringing in the season.
The antique "petal" bell on this piece is 1 7/8" 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 antique bells in this size range that sound good enough to be used as a single bell. I need flexibility to choose a bell with the best appearance and tone. More about our bells...
The handle is made of firm yet flexible bridle or carving leather. The bell and handle, as shown, are about 7 1/2" long. One side of the leather handle can be stamped with a name, word, or phrase 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".
