The Brushed Nickel Silver 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 Brushed Nickel Silver Pineapple Doorbell Ringer is cast in solid nickel silver. It was hand-crafted using the age old art of foundry casting. During the process molten nickel silver is heated to over 2000°F then carefully poured into a handmade sand mold. This mold is used only once, giving this Doorbell Ringer its individual character. The Pineapple Ringer is then given a brushed nickel finish and then polished to a chrome shine. Afterwards, it is coated with a clear lacquer to protect its original finish. The Pineapple Doorbell Ringer is signed by the artist, Michael Healy, confirming its authenticity and quality craftsmanship.
