The Bell Rope

HistoryKeith HudsonComment
Bell Rope

The Bell Rope is one of the few "ropes" on a ship (others being referred to by specific names eg. sheets, hawsers, lines, stays).  Traditionally made ship's bell ropes are a pleasure to look at in their knotted glory and as contemporary decorative artifacts. They can be enjoyed by landlubbers too!

They make unusual accessories for the home- doorbell, dinner bell or even purely for display.  A hand knotted ship's bell pull will complement a nautical living space admirably.

This type of intricate knotwork is time consuming to make and may be purchased as a special order. Each bell pull is individually designed to suit.  For more information or to place an order, please contact me.
