Wind-bell, a bell or a cluster of resonating pieces that are moved and sounded by the wind. The wind-bell has three basic forms: (1) a cluster of small pieces of metal, glass, pottery, bamboo, seashell, or wood that tinkle when blown by the wind; (2) a cluster of chimes that are rung by a central clapper, to which is attached a flat plate to catch the wind; and (3) a bell whose clapper is attached to a flat plate to catch the wind.

The pictures found on this site present bells from a private collection.
