Outer Banks Wind Bell
Covering most of the North Carolina coast, the 200-mile-long string of barrier islands offer a wide expanse of open oceanfront for surfcasting, beach combing and beautiful sunrises. Known for a large number of shipwrecks that have occurred throughout history, the treacherous fury of the Atlantic Ocean has given these seas the nickname "Graveyard of the Atlantic". The hardy people that reside on these strips of land depend on bell buoys to safeguard their way through inlets and dangerous shoals.
This buoy bell is made by a small family-owned company in the Northeast of recycled steel. The three sides each echo beautiful melodies in the drifting winds, painstakingly designed to mimic the deep, haunting tones of an offshore Outer Banks bell buoy. The wind catcher has been cut in the shape of the Compass Rose. The entire bell is powder coated, will age gracefully over time and last for generations. Measures 16-1/2" long. Weighs 11 lbs. Includes chain for hanging. Made in Maine.
