Copper ship bell with anchor hanging plate and rope. There's a shipping company stamp on it, a dragon. Beautiful, clear sound.
An ‘allemansend’ or ‘allemanseind’ is a richly decorated rope attached to the clapper of the ship bell or sounding clock. The rope is used to ring the bell manually.
Originally, it is the result of rivalry between boatswains, who showed their skill by making decorations (e.g. cart parts knots) on a piece of rope. Those ends were preserved and hung in plain sight, like on the ship's bell or purely decorative.
