  • Note
    Note from inventory reads, 'They dangle horizontally and only the edges strike together. Their piercing note calls the hungry spirits to accept the food offerings'. This sounds as if it has possibly been taken from collector notes or a published source, but there are no references. All the objects around this accession number were from the John Cluade White collection, although the cymbals do not state this.
