Blandin illustrates eight bracelets, currently in the Musé de l'Homme,which were excavated by a Colonial administrator near Goundam S. As to manufacture, there is a wide range of sophistication in the group, from simple drawn wire of medium gauge bent in crescent shape to lovely, detailed pieces depicting a king's stool or a corpse laid out for burial.
Most of the pieces are cast, probably in open moulds, though the more elaborate pieces are probably cierré-perdu, a technology which predates coastal European contact. Given our current minimal state of knowledge, the most to be said for dating is that these are the oldest available bracelet monies of African origins, are possibly prototypes of some later, sub-Saharan types. They may have been made anywhere from before AD to somewhat after AD. The weights of individual pieces do not appear to show any denominational system, though specimens of the commoner types often cluster within a few grams and can be very similar in diameter esp.
It is tempting to posit a size rather than weight-based metrology for other types s,t. The group consists of pieces offered below, plus some fragments, and 63 unusual or single types to be photographed and offered individually.
Census figures for each type are shown in parentheses. Ranges of weight, diameter, and thickness are given by type. Unless noted, all are red copper with some degree of green patination; many have been lightly wire brushed to remove heavy soil and flaky or powdery green. If you have a preference for either "clean" or "green" let me know so I can select appropriate specimens. Pieces shown when clicking on thumbnails are typical examples, while pieces with letters after the stock number are the exact specimen you will receive.
Mostly gm, m diameter, 12m gauge thickness wire, nicely patinated. Commonest type of this hoard. Sample shown, yours will be different. GAP Open bracelet with tubes at gap. Is this a coincidence or is there a weight standard here?? Open-end with a few lines engraved, as a set of 3: Round body, little or no design. Could these be based on nose rings used to control bulls? Rough surface; frozen solid with old corrosion.
Originaly wire may have been used to hold the halves together, as I have never found a specimen with any kind of pin attached. All fit together well; two are shown apart to demonstrate hinges Each: RINGS A distinctive group, m diameter with large center holes for finger wearing, though some may have other purposes. Weights run gm with no real clustering. Generally flat interiors, rounded exteriors with no design; 8 pcs.
No doubt functioned as "small change" as well as adornment. This is one of the few types in the hoard that has counterparts among later bracelets See , below.
These hve green and corroded surfaces, but I have darkened and sealed. One tiny casting hole. More modern pieces of similar shape are attributed to the Senufo of Burkina Faso. Two different available, mm 5. Bands mm wide, with narrow gaps, mm across, with extenive design: I've left these dirty and crusty as found, but a wire brushing and oiling would make them look like museum pieces.
Attributed to Nupe Tribe, Bidda area, N. Large type as above with a crude fish etched and punched into one side at top. In this desert region, what would be the normal meaning of a fish?
Very much like the silver? White brass, yellow brass. Some with flattened sides for stacking. Designs link this to , the Nupe type. Nicest example in stock. It is, by size and intricacy of design, clearly the "king" of these later large-foot bracelets. I call it a manilla because it is an elegant exaggeration of the European product. In fact, the clustering of the weights makes me wonder whether these had some relationship to early, heavy-weight European manillas.
