Cupreous Tinkler Cone, and Cut Cupreous Sheet Metal
Brass kettles were often cut up and shaped into cones. These cones would then be suspended close together on the fringes of clothing‚ when the person walked, the cones would strike together and make a sound. These cones are called tinkler cones or tinkling cones by archaeologists. The length of the cone is 2.12 cm.
