French Double Belled Wedge

(1 customer review)

$1,100.00

This tent is derived from a photo of a number of tents in a camp setting, circa American Civil War. They are referred to as “imported French belled tents”. The entry way is under the center panel in the main tent body and, apparently, if the tents were used as residences, the domicile area is in the belled ends. The design is unique and functional.

The overall length is 21 feet. The main body of the tent is 9 feet long, 12 feet wide and 10 feet high with the belled ends being 6 feet in radius. Both sides of the main body are cut to be raised for entry and shade. When both sides are raised to a height of 6 feet 6 inches, the canopied area is increased to 8’ 6”by 20 feet.This tent is finished with mud flaps in the bell ends.

If you will be attaching an awning, wind ropes, or finials, you will need a metal grommet (or 2) in the peak of your tent through which the pins can run.

All doors on our tents come with tie closures, but we can substitute loops and wooden toggle closures.

    We have owned one of these for over 30 years. It still looks nearly new, a testament to the quality materials and workmanship Tentsmiths puts into every product. (We also have 2 smaller tents and a canopy.). The great thing about the French double-belled wedge is how the doors open like wings, letting in light and air. We use ours for extended camping trips in hot weather. It also serves as the ‘Gateway to the Past’ when the Living History Company of the Santa Elena History Center does period encampments. Visitors pass through the open section from the 21st century to the 16th. The two end sections shelter ticket-takers and a selection of items from the museum shop. This is a large and versatile tent that makes a real impression. It pitches exactly like the big pup tent it is at heart. Two people can do it, but three are even better.
