Benin Bronze Bracelet

Vintage African Benin trade currency bronze bracelet. From Cameroon, Africa.

This very attractive, large bronze bracelet has an attractive green and brownish patina and is beautifully cast with fine detailing.

These bracelets were traditionally used as symbols of status, power, authority, and in some cases, as currency.  They are made by the lost wax process, so every piece made is uniquely different.

Measurements: Width 12.8 cm (5"), height 14 cm (5.5"), depth 6 cm (2.5")
