Crotal Bells

These little bells hung round animal's necks a long time ago. These were literally unearthed by treasure seekers or during archeological digs. Some date back to the 17th century and some bear maker's marks. Another example of the diverse uses of bells. The one on the left is an old bronze cow bell. An 'umble little lot. Mind you, they weren't cheap!
