The Bell Rope

HistoryKeith HudsonComment

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!
