Antique large bronze manilla slave bracelet

Antique bronze manilla slave bracelet.

Originally these were used as money and for trading in African slaves.

Circa 1800 or earlier.

Shocking to think that people would buy and sell other people. A relic of bygone darker days.
This is a particularly interesting example – larger than usual and a more elegant shape.

Size:
length: 2.5 inches;
size of opening: 1 inch.

Weight: 150g (allow 250g once packed).

Condition commensurate with age and use.
