Triangular bell of thin copper plate. The bell is partially fragmented but has three rod-shaped iron clappers and at the top a soldered ribbon-shaped hanging loop. Contemporary visual materials show that similar bells were used at funeral processions and ceremonies. They would have been worn in pairs by one of the participants. Bog find, Mästermyr, Silte Parish, Gotland.
