The brass bell is in the form of the horned head of a sea serpent. A obliquely grooved ball is sited between the two lower ferrules. A round eyelet for a strap is positioned at the top of the serpent's neck. The proximal end terminates in an integral copper mouthpiece, which has a wide rim and a shallow cup.
