The Bell and Bell-Shrine of Saint Cuileáin from Ireland on display at the British Museum

The inner iron bell was made between the 7th and 8th Centuries CE and the more elaborate outer case was made in the 12th Century CE.

This bell, reputedly owned by the Irish Saint Cuileáin, was later encased in its elaborate metal shrine and treated as a relic. The brass plate on this side is engraved with a cross. The other side is bare but was once decorated with a jewelled crucifix.

The ornate mount on the top inlaid with enamel, niello (a black metal alloy) and copper and silver wires, is decorated with human and animal faces, and interlacing Viking-style creatures. Accounts from the 1600′s onwards describing the bell-shrine’s miraculous healing and lie-detecting powers reveal the longevity of its spiritual significance.

Don’t get pinched!
