A copper alloy crotal bell, cast in one piece and dating to the post-medieval period. The bell has a median band which was intended to imitate the earlier two-piece crotal bells. This example has a rectangular suspension loop and two sounding holes on the upper half of the bell. The lower half of the bell contains the sounding split, and internally the iron pea is retained. There is no decoration. This style of bell dates from the 17th to 18th century AD.
