Here’s an interesting piece.
just over 2 inches in diameter and just under 3 inches high.
Handle and bell appear to have been molded as one piece, with additional decoration added in the form of a parallel set of lines around 80% of the top bulge of the bell and crude cross in the center of the blank part. Looks to be stamped by a sharp 1/2″ chisel in a ‘Plus sign’ arraignment. Molded Iron clapper is simply hung by a couple strong wires. a simple archway motif runs around the rim of the skirt. Handle has a couple ‘ears’ to fancy it up or perhaps provide some additional support at the weak point.
Seller told me it was collected from the Sudan region.
I have four bells like this that I collected in Pakistan. They are different sizes and are, I believe, cow or buffalo bells. Your one is unlikely to have been cast in Sudan. Probably taken there from India or Pakistan? hope this helps.
