Reportedly discovered in Gushi County, Henan province
Inventory number: XLIX:I:C.l.02.
The crown of this bell widens to the lip. When viewed from below, the mouth is lozenge-shaped, ending in corners at the sides. When examining it from the front or back, the mouth is arched. There is a loop on top of the bell from which it was attached to something. There is a linear circular decoration on the two faces, which may represent an abstract monster mask (taotie). The bell has probably had a clapper inside.
The to which this bell dates, marks the end of chariot use in China. However, it is still possible that this small bell was used on such a vehicle. Otherwise, it would have been appropriate for use on a horse, or perhaps even a dog.
