Also known as chuckwagon dinner bells, these iron triangles have been used historically to signal cowboys on a ranch that supper was ready to be served. They could be fastened near the kitchen on the homestead to supply a loud enough ring that would carry across the farmland, or used as mobile units when ranchers traveled across the country via chuckwagons on cattle drives. They were created by blacksmiths, who would forge iron to create the shape and ‘striker’ (or ringer) to bang on the inside of the triangle.
Bringing back a piece of our history with this historic triangle and the way it was made, this unique three piece dinner triangle set comes with a triangle, wall mounted support and ringer. The set is hand forged from mild steel from a local salvage yard and has a bright, clear ring that can easily be used to signal your family, staff, even pets, that it’s time to gather round.
