A complete cast copper-alloy cast spherical bell of post-medieval date (c.1500-1650 AD). The bell is spherical and comprises two hemispherical domes with a raised circumferential join. The top hemisphere has two circular sound holes and a square suspension loop with drilled circular hole projecting from the top. The hole was drilled later into the solid cast loop suggesting it was made before the introduction of the detachable 'sprue-piece' method in the mid-17th century. The lower side of this drilled hole has broken or worn through the top of the bell leaving a slot. The lower hemis…

A cast copper-alloy spherical animal ('crotal') bell of post-medieval date (c. 17th century AD). The sub-rectangular suspension loop at the top is 6.9mm in length.

The upper and lower hemispheres are divided by a prominent horizontal circumferential rib. At either side of the suspension loop, about halfway down the side of the upper hemisphere, is a circular sound hole. Across the lower hemisphere is a rectangular sound slot opening into a circul…
