What Does This Mean
The expression “a dog is a man’s best friend” is never more true than when spoken about the thousands of canine companions who serve and support children and adults with disabilities. This bell honors these dedicated companions and the people they serve. For more information: Canine Companions for Independence 4350 Occidental Road Santa Rosa, CA 95402-0446 (707) 528-0830
Each bell bears a unique design handcrafted by a skilled artisan. Original designs will vary greatly from displayed sample.
The highly variable color patterns range from green to turquoise or from orange to red or with all shades mottled on the same piece.
The bell and its bronze components are steel brushed for a lustrous finish and burnished (flame treated) with a torch in order to bring out metallic bronze highlights varying from colors of gold to iridescent shimmers of blues and greens. An acrylic spray coating completes the finish making it resistant to oxidation. The luster brilliance and subtle highlighted patterns are artistically and randomly achieved, and therefore will vary from displayed sample.
