This is the Bar Harbor Buoy Bell. Each North Country Wind Bell is based on Jim (founder) and his family’s interpretation of the gong and bell buoys in the areas for which they’re named. Because of the wide variance in their tones, their groupings have resulted in single, double and triple-toned buoy bells.
On the Downeast Island of Mount Desert, the quaint town of Bar Harbor provides respite for the weary traveler. The stunning coastal shores, the wild forests of Acadia National Park, and the friendly community of townsmen add to the nostalgic atmosphere of Bar Harbor. As you sit dreamily on the shores listening to the pounding waves, you may hear the three toned buoy, welcoming the visiting boats and ships. Visitors are welcomed by open arms from the awaiting community, to welcome you home on your vacation.
Every North Country Wind Bell is shaped from quality steel which is over 60% recycled! All steel is a “living finish” and will patina over time, but will play for many years to come. All of North Country Wind Bells are powder coated with a durable outdoor weathering finish. These characteristics make it ideal for North Country Wind Bells, which are designed to hang outdoors year-round, and will not twist, tangle or break.
Quality materials, fine workmanship and family pride ensure that these rugged bells from North Country Wind Bells will endure for many years to come. Even hung far from the ocean, their response to a gentle breeze carries pleasant reminders of ocean swells and the constant vigil sounded by coastal and harbor bells.
