Elf's Bell

Tira had the honor of engraving the ship's bell for Elf, the oldest racing yacht in the United States, and possibly the world. Built in Boston in 1888, Elf Tira presenting Elf's Bell to Rickhas been painstakingly restored by Rick Carrion for the last 17 years. This kind of detailed, historic restoration requires the kind craftsmanship and pride that bring people to Tira to entrust her with their priceless items. To read more about Elf and the organization that supports it, please visit the Classic Yacht Restoration Guild.

Tira's work on Elf's bell also exemplifies how one project can develop into a fundraising opportunity. Having presented the bell to Rick, Tira has since engraved Elf's silhouette into nickel silver, after which it was cast and used as a fundraiser on a laser engraved plaque by Precision Artistry, LLC, for CYRG.
