Capture the spirit of The Polar Express with this handcrafted sterling silver sleigh bell-a replica of the bells on Santa's sleigh and the bell that became Santa's first gift of the season in the Polar Express story. The bell was formed by Valerio Albarello and cold worked and plenished by Tamra Mottl.
All proceeds benefit the Draw A Breath asthma education program at Hasbro Children's Hospital.
"Over the years, we have received some 600 bells from Polar Express readers around the world, yet it is this hammered bell, designed and individually plenished by Rhode Island School of Design graduate Tamra Mottl that captures the spirit of the bell I envisioned when I first wrote the book so many years ago."- Chris Van Allsburg
This sterling silver bell is one of an edition of 300. This second edition bell has "The Polar Express" tastefully embossed across its center section. Each bell contains a description of the bell and its makers and the card is individually autographed by Polar Express author and illustrator Chris Van Allsburg.
