Collectible and Vintage Christmas Bells

Bells have long been a staple of Christmas imagery, a reflection of bells being rung to announce Christ's birth, and also of the pagan tradition of ringing bells to scare demons away. Today, one can find vintage glass bell tree ornaments, sleigh bells, caroling bells, and decorative bells of all varieties on the market. While no longer common, bell-shaped Christmas lights were once popular, and have become a hot item for some collectors.
