Dimensions

Height: 7 1/4 Inches; Diameter: 3 3/4 Inches

This solid brass pineapple bell isn't your everyday bell--or your everyday pineapple, for that matter.

At 7 1/4 in. tall, the bell has presence and can serve as a focal point in a tropical-inspired vignette. As a symbol of hospitality, the pineapple can welcome visitors in the entryway or guest room. Three layers of leaves on the crown are secured to the fruit by an inner screw that can be removed in order to separate the pieces for cleaning. (In order to completely disassemble the bell, the clapper must first be removed from the interior stem--a little tricky, but it can be done.) The bell has great sound, nice weight, and a wonderful patina that can only be acquired over time.

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
7 1/4 in. tall x 3 3/4 in. in diameter at widest point; weighs 1 1/4 lbs.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition; suitable for gift giving. We've brushed off surface dust but haven't polished the bell. There is some old polish residue on the undersides of the leaves, as well as some color variations, which we feel will polish out if a more uniform look is preferred. We recommend Peek Polish.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
