A Post-Medieval to modern copper alloy crotal bell, dating to c. AD 1600 - 1850. The object is made up of two hemispheres meeting at a pronounced circumferencial ridge, the upper hemisphere is less domed and has a more angular profile than the lower. Cut into opposite sides of the the upper hemisphere are a pair of sub-circular apertures, acting as sound holes, and at a right angle to these at the apex of the hemisphere extends an integrally cast rectangualr suspension loop. The loop has a rectangular cross section and is worn internally on the upper section. The lower hemisphere has …

A copper-alloy loop, probably the suspension loop from a large crotal bell dating to 1650-1950. The loop is C-shaped rotated 90 degrees in plan and circular in cross-section. The curve of the loop is wider and thicker and has a rectangular cross-section. The bell loop was probably made using a detachable 'sprue-piece', this method was introduced in the 17th century. Date: Post medieval Length: 19.1mm Width: 17.6mm Thickness: 5.1mm at curve, 4.5mm at ends. Weight: 5.84g

Cast copper alloy spherical bell with a very worn 'sunburst' pattern decorating the lower part. The pattern consists of ten incised petals, 25 mm long and 9 mm wide (central petal), with medial lines that radiate from the edge of the slit at the base of the bell, with five on each side. There is a central raised rib which divides the upper and lower halves of the bell. On the upper half of the bell, there are two circular sound holes, 7 mm in diameter, on either side of the suspension loop, which is made up of an ovoid, 7 mm in diameter, within a square. There are two circular holes, …

A copper alloy Roman bell dating to the period c. AD 43 - 410. The bell is conical in shape with a lozengiform suspension loop projecting from the top. The interior of the bell features traces of iron staining indicating the missing clapper. Crummy (1983, p. 127) states that bells were probably attached to the collars of livestock or domestic pets, although some may have been used as personal ornaments. The bell measures 27.16mm in height, has a maximum width of 23.93mm, a minimum width of 2.26mm and is 1.25mm thick. It weighs 9.91g. Cf. Crummy, N, 1983, p. 127, fig. 143, no. 4168.
