A complete cast spherical bell probably for hawking of Early Post Medieval probably dating 15th to 16th Centuries AD. This style is typical of what have been classed as 16th century AD hawking bells, however with no mark or datable context there is no way of saying this is definitely over 300 years old, though it may be. And so it has not been reported as treasure. The bell is formed of upper and lower hemispheres soldered or brazed together, in a raised join around the centre and decorated with a cable ornament. The upper hemisphere is plain with a silver loop soldered to the centre.…
