Small iron bell, total length 3.6cm. Bell sub-rectangular with hunched angular shoulder and slides opening towards mouth; remains of bronze lining inside, but iron outside, i.e. bronze sheet or plating inside. Traces of rusted iron inside, probably the clapper; loop on top is again squarish with angular corners. Textile traces on one side.Cf. Kingston grave 222 for similar example.
