More about this item
This is my most unique bell, a real sleigh bell, early American, restored (ie cleaned), with oh-so-soft hand woven buckskin leather strap, in a nice velvet pouch. This particular bell is rare and difficult to find. The person receiving this should have no doubt that it has been in service to a sleigh for a very long time.
A few years ago, Hallmark created their Polar Express bell - a very expensive collectible, that coincided with the release of 'The Polar Express'. Many families wanted to give the gift of a bell, but the prices were prohibitive. I created this custom, hand-made, reasonably priced alternative, here at Elvenridge, on Elfworks Lane, where I live. Accept no substitutes - I offer these bells again this year, at all different prices, to fit your budget. This is my lower end brass bell, a real sleigh bell, with leather strap, in a nice velvet pouch. Kids love these bells, and they were a big hit all across the world last year. Thanks for reading, and thanks for giving us elves an opportunity to help with your gift shopping!
You will find other sellers that handle bells seasonally - we handle them year round. Some try to mimic what we do here. Be aware that we RESTORE antique bells, not just clean them. That means that they will not be damaged or gouged by rough cleaning treatments. We also package in a careful and thoughtful way - it's not just a bell - it's a whole package - put together with great love and care for YOUR special gift.
"As the head elf, I just want everyone to know that I have a special relationship with each and every bell and every package that leaves Elvenridge and goes into the world. Our gift recipients need to be delighted, or we will do everything in our power to make it so..."
There are no company logos or marks anywhere - so you and your loved one can be assured that these are authentically elf-made and not mass produced.
These make a great gift for any Polar Express Train / movie lover, OR for anyone who you wish to deliver the "BELIEVE" message to!
We have experience with large volumes also - these make thoughtful and fun handouts for company parties and special parties and events.
This particular bell is an ACTUAL sleigh bell. It has good weight, being brass, and has a pleasant ring. Kids young and old love these.
A note about package tracking: I ship USPS, or Fedex. USPS insurance provides for tracking. Fedex tracking is built in.

"Happy New Year! Just thought I would tell you that BY FAR the bell is my son's favorite gift that Santa brought to him. (He is 6 1/2) He has shown everyone he knows and explains why it's so special... it's from the sleigh.... look at the engraving... look how it's worn... look at the leather & the box! We are so happy and want to thank you for your help! He has a friend who has the Hallmark version and even she was in awe at the -real- bell. Thanks again & happy new year to you and yours. "
"I know I left feedback but I wanted to share something with you. I ordered this bell for my 9 year old grandson because he asked Santa for a reindeer bell for Christmas, thanks to you it got here in time to Canada and it was the biggest hit for him. I read him the Polar Express on Christmas Eve and he said he asked Santa for a bell and wondered if it was silver or gold. Well Christmas morning he has so excited to get his SILVER bell. When asked even a week later what was the best Christmas present he got it is always 'the bell' over games, MP3 player, snowboard, everything! Thank you for making his Christmas so special, we can all believe!"
