The Oiled Bronze Pineapple Doorbell Ringer was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan. The Pineapple is a traditional symbol for abundant hospitality, making it an ideal image to greet guests who ring your doorbell. The Oiled Bronze Pineapple Doorbell Ringer is cast in solid bronze. It was hand-crafted using the age old art of foundry casting. During the process molten bronze is heated to over 2000°F then carefully poured into a handmade sand mold. This mold is used only once, giving your Doorbell Ringer its individual character. The Pineapple Ringer is then given a statuary oiled bronze finish, highlighted by hand and coated with a clear lacquer to protect its original finish. It is signed in the mold by the artist, Michael Healy, confirming its authenticity and quality craftsmanship.
