Start Your Own Family Tradition

Way back, when I was young, the rule Christmas morning was that you could not come down from your bedroom until…you heard Santa’s sleigh bells indicating that he was leaving your home. And down the stairs we came…

And we still have those bells!

You can start your own family tradition with this set of beautiful handcrafted sleigh bells. These are actual bells designed for a horse, but a wonderful and creative holiday decoration for your home. They are handcrafted to be a family heirloom, for generations, and made by a one-man shop right here in Kentucky!  These sleigh bells are heavy duty horse tack and not a cheap Christmas decoration. Bells have been used on horses since at least 800 BC for both working purposes and to enhance the beauty of these noble animals.

Our sleigh bells are heavy sand cast brass, highly polished and strung on a high quality, hand tooled strap of premium English saddle skirting. We go to the extra effort to protect the horse by sewing a second strap on the back side so as to cover construction hardware. While built for a horse, these bells will make a knock out door dressing with large red ribbon and a green wreath. After the holidays they will make a wonderful addition hanging by the fireplace. A word of warning, grandkids will love them!

Each set includes seventeen bells, each with a number to identify the size and sound. One is the smallest, two next and so forth. The center bell, number 14, is largest and measures 3”. The bells are lightly waxed not lacquered.The saddle leather has been harness oiled and has had a sealer applied. Should not require any significant attention for 7-8 years.Care tag enclosed.

Since there are handcrafted here, only a few sets will be available. I have been given six sets to offer and it doubtful if I can get more prior to the holidays. If you appreciate unique handcrafted quality items, I think you will be pleased with your new family tradition and suggest you order soon.
