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 curve of the bell continues under the loop suggesting it was made using the detachable sprue-piece method developed in the 17th century. 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…
