Traditionally the Triangle Dinner Bell was used on the ranch to call the ranch hands in for dinner, on the cattle drive to call the drovers in for Classic Triangle Dinner Bell Triangle on Porch supper, and in the pioneer home to call the kids in for the evening meal. The image of mom on the porch ringing the bell yelling “Come and get it” could have come right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. A triangle dinner bell hanging from your porch is instantly recognizable and will transport you back to simpler times.
