The inverted bell is a metaphorical name for geometric shape that resembles a bell upside down.

In architecture, the term is applied, e.g., to describe the shape of the capitals of Corinthian columns.

The inverted bell is used in shape classification in pottery,[1] often featured in archaeology as well as in modern times.

The inverted bell curve is sometimes called well curve.
