Description

Today we are happy to offer for sale a wonderful antique African ceremonial ankle bell!

The piece features a hand-forged iron frame with inset loose rings and a large closed rattle bell. The ankle bell was used in ceremonial rituals in African tribes.

Piece presents well and is in very good antique condition, with wear/tarnishing and patina commensurate with age. This piece was acquired by a local anthropology professor during one of his many trips to the African continent many years ago.

Dimensions: 6-3/8″ in height, 6-1/8″ in length, 5/8″ in depth
