These trapezium shape bells were produced in the Mandalay region and are called hka-lauk in Burmese. They were worn by buffaloes and traditionally decorated with geometric or floral designs. As a result of their age and use, they have a very nice patina.
These bronze bells were made using the lost wax technique, making each one a unique piece.
They are sold with a customised steel pedestal, which makes them very decorative antique objects. Total height, including the pedestal: 36 cm.

For close to 15 years now, I have been buying most of my bronze bells, with the exception of temple bells, from the same vendor. Communicating with him has always been very complicated because his English is not better than my Burmese. But, strangely enough, the relationship has been good and we have a great time every time we meet, although I must admit that I'd love to have something to drink other than tea...
Good condition but with signs of their use, and the place where the rope that was passed around the animal's neck is worn out.
The clapper of the biggest one is missing.
Will be very carefully packaged and sent via Bpost with insurance and tracking.
