Department 56 Alpine Village Alpine Cowbell Forge Lighted Building #6005374.
Essentially, the purpose of the cow bell is to assist the rancher or herder in locating the cows while they are out grazing. Traditions include everything from the spring parade - when, after the snowmelt, cows filled the village streets with the sound of ringing bells while leaving to graze the high mountain pastures - to letting the best milking cows where the largest bells, a sign of honor. Today, new traditions have formed as we hear the bells rung by fans to encourage athletes in some of the largest international sporting events.
