Antique Bronze Elephant Bell 18thC Burma EBB26


Known in Burma as chu, this spherical antique bell is among the oldest of its kind we have seen. From the 18th century, the bronze of this relatively small Burmese bell is heavily oxidized and has developed an almost stony patina as do bronze objects exposed to the elements over very long periods. The insignia or name of the maker is now indistinguishable.

Availability: In stock

A metal ball rolls around inside the bell and sounds against the bell wall with pleasant gentle notes. The bell is hung from a custom built stand.
