This is not a windchime; it is a camel bell. It is from Iran. It is designed to hang around the neck of a camel and rings melodically as the camel walks. Tradition states that each time a female camel has a calf, a new bell is added to the set, although this is probably fable. This is a beautiful bell. It was probably made within the past 50 years since it is labeled Iran and not Persia.
