|MOEN Bells were recognized by the world in 1994 at the Lillehammer Winter Olympics, at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, and during the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games, but enjoy a much longer legacy. The first MOEN Bells were produced in 1922 by Tobias Moen in the picturesque little town of Moi on the west coast of Norway.
The bells are cut from iron sheets, formed, and coated with brass recycled from spent ammunition cartridges from Norwegian military practice ranges.
Bells are a popular tradition at European sporting events where their distinctive cheerful clamor applauds athletes. The bells have come a long way from their original use--helping farmers find animals lost in mountain pastures.
