Ancient Chinese Bell // Zhou Dyn, Spring & Autumn Period, 650-400 BCE
Ancient China, Zhou Dynasty, Spring and Autumn Period, 650-400 BCE. Bronze Bell Money (“zhong qian or ch'ung”). As made, with small suspension loop and no clapper, excellent olive-green patina with light earthen deposits. For many years bells these have been found in tombs as sets of bells used for making music and sets include small bells up through large ones, each probably playing one note. Whether currency or not, this is still a fascinating artifact.
