This is a very unique old Tuareg Brass etched Currency Stick. The Tuareg are nomads who travel all over the Sahara Desert and are primarily herders and traders. Skilled craftsmen made elegant forms from Silver and Brass metals, most were worn as jewelry, which was the were the principal method of storing and exchanging wealth. These Brass forms were recognized and traded as currency. These wonderful sticks were also carried to break sugar into tea. While some of these continued to be functional for work or decorative purposes, most evolved into pure currency and deliberately unusable except as objects recognized, prized and accepted widely as payment. They are unique and one of a kind. This would be a wonderful item for your home or to give as a gift and even put in your jewelry designs.
