Antique Bronze Pastoral Bell Yunnan EBB95


From Yunnan, Southern China, this spherical antique pastoral bell is a rare find, much coveted by collectors. This well worn bell would have hung from the neck of a young farm animal and bears the face of a protective spirit thought to ward off misfortune, such as predators. The bronze has a beautifully worn, smooth patina with the presence of green of oxidization. The loop to which the rope was attached is exceptionally worn. 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.
