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.
