Historically in Italy bells are said to be a gift of good luck and, in ancient times, a symbol of love! The use of holly in Italy dates back to the Romans who gifted garlands and bunches in December and dedicated it to their sun god, Saturn.
These hand-crafted Abruzzese Christmas bells are available in 3 sizes. Simply pick a size and don’t forget to add the name(s) of who you would like the bell dedicated to!
Each personalised bell is made and hand painted in Francavilla al Mare (CH), Abruzzo Italy using local clay.
It takes many hours of work and 19 different steps to complete a bell. Among these are the finishing on the lathe to obtain a ringing sound and two firings at almost 1000 ° C. The last step in the kiln, after painting, is the one that fixes the decoration and makes the glaze shiny and bright.
