Bells were vitally important and immensely valuable to the missions and early mission life. Bells were used to call the community to meals, religious services, work, funerals, the sighting of a supply ship, the sighting of a returning padre and for recreational purposes.
Today, after extensive research and design, we have crafted a series of collectible brass bells reminiscent of that bygone era. The bells are produced in great detail with a beautiful tone and the precise craftsmanship demanded by such an important piece of California history.
*Due to the handcrafted nature of the Mission Gift Shop Bell Collection, there will be some variation in their appearance and finish.
This is to be expected and adds to their unique character.
