Cast by expert blacksmiths, these extraordinary legbands were worn by rich women as a sign of nobility. Due to their weight, they were worn with a ring of plant fibers inside the legband to protect their ankles, as they were heavy. In 1900, five-twenty of these currency anklets would secure a bride.
These legbands were both currency and status symbols and were made by pouring hot copper and tin into molds set in the ground. Once formed they were removed and bent around a tree branch until they had the appropriate size.
