A bell rings out protection and blessing ...

In the homeland of Tirol, as well as in many other regions of the planet, there exists a belief that each and every human being is accompanied through life by a protective guardian angel.

By ringing bells, not only the bell music, but also - through the angels’ crowns - protection and blessing are pealed into all directions of the compass.

Apart from the ‘austere 1970s and 1980s’ when simple ‘cheap crowns’ were often manufactured, or even bells altogether without crowns for reasons of thrift, the bells at GRASSMAYR, barring artistic or religious requests to the contray, are cast with angels’ crowns.
