Large enclosed spherical bell or rattle having a loose pellet inside sometimes called Chu, Burma or buffalo bell.

This large antique spherical oriental brass or bronze elephant, buffalo or cattle bell is handcrafted. It comes in two separate halves into which a loose pellet (may be bone) was introduced and the two molded halves were then soldered together. The bell has one slit as well as other small openings in its surface. Its hand forged hook is also soldered. It is made of what seems thick hammered brass. The bell is signed with Chinese or Japanese characters impressed on the surface. It has a wonderful patina.
Late nineteenth, early twentieth century. These bells where used to locate animals in the countryside.
