    These bells make the most beautiful sound! i couldn't believe it when i rang them! those tines make it sound like many bells. i'm not sure why they have the little tops like these do, nor how they are used, but i want to learn more about them.

      Your's are decorative items and even musical instruments. Struck like gongs, they are often featured in modern musical arrangements.(Source link beneath, last paragraph and pic).

      nice work kyra!! exactly right! i found quite a few which said they are from Tibet, but they look Indian to me. the sound is really wonderful and i can imagine an elephant walking by tinkling with these!

      Ho2cultcha... now you have to find a baby elephant for the nursery ;-))

      i think i'd rather an old, retired elephant!

      These are also Benares Ware - good quality and early 20th century/late 19th century.
