This heavy and very old bronze bracelet, Lobi or may be Fra-Fra, was probably a wedding gift, offered by a father to his daughter or by a man to his wife. She will keep it throughout her life. It is not just an ornament, but reveals the cultural and tribal identity, and the status of the woman who wears it.
18th / 19th century.
