This is a wonderful old Cast Bronze Etched Currency Bracelet from Mali. This bronze and copper circular bracelet served as a form of commodity money, as well as ornamentation, among certain West African tribal people. The Bronze casting is of high quality and the design a classic example of the African style. The bracelet is the most common money form in Africa. It served the important monetary functions of portability and wealth display. Often identified as a currency type it also served as a prestige object available in most instances to elites within African society. Massive, heavy and hollow cast bracelet is an extraordinary example of the skill of the bronze caster. Objects used as currency were sometimes also in themselves desirable objects, frequently used for body ornamentation. This would be a wonderful bracelet to add to your collection.
