Vintage East African cow bell

£29.50

This is a really interesting and tactile item. I believe that it is East African from around Kenya or Uganda. It is an old, rustic hand made cow bell. The bell itself is simply made from a folded piece of metal with three large metal ball bearings to rattle when it is shaken. The leather straps that attach the bell to the cow collar don't appear to have been used as they are still very clean.

The bell measures 18cm across whilst the bell and strap are 21cm tall. The whole thing weighs almost 400g.
