From the snowy white background and icy shades of blue, gray, and silver to the polar motifs, every aspect of this bell suggests the life and culture of the Canadian Yukon. The uniquely North American design was created exclusively for the Bell Collectors Club by Sunrise, Canada's only fine bone china producer.
One side of the bell has an incredibly lifelike representation of a mother polar bear and her cub. It is both stunning and poignant, since these magnificent creatures have become a threatened species. The rendering of a dog sled on the reverse side has a rare three-dimensional quality. One can almost feel the cold, as the four Alaskan huskies pull the sled across frozen terrain.
The house of Sunrise follows the time-honored traditions of fine English porcelain manufacture. A mixture of clay, granite rock, and bone gives the china its characteristic whiteness, strength, and translucence. The meticulous artistry of true craftsmen gives it the beauty that collectors around the world have come to appreciate.
Bell includes card with the above information from the Bell Collectors Club.
Bell measures approx. 3 3/8" height x 2 7/8" dia.
