High performance UK made brassware. Is there a better bell? I think not.
I’m not one for some idealised patriotic vision of the past. But nonetheless, there is something wonderful about the fact that Lion Bellworks bells are made in the UK, manufactured in Birmingham and Barnsley.
They produce a clear and resonant ring, the kind of ring that alerts without impatience. The unlacquered brass develops a lovely patina, which, like all the best things, gets better with age.
If purchased with a stem, I can include a braze on to the stem to cleanly mount the bell.
