DESCRIPTION

Set consisting of two Cambodian bronze bells that used to be hung on the necks of elephants.

These bells were traditionally worn in groups of three, with a larger bell in the middle surrounded by two smaller ones.

The smallest measures 8 cm in height and 6.8 cm in diameter.
The largest measures 10 cm in height and 7 cm in diameter.

These bells are very rare and sought-after.

A metal ball is inside the bell and creates the sound.

Sold with their custom-made steel base.

Lost wax process, which makes each bell unique. Circa 19th century.
