Seller: faganarms ✉️ (282) 100%, Location: Clinton Township, Michigan, US, Ships to: WORLDWIDE, Item: 325187042250 BRONZE ASHANTI GEOMETRIC GOLD WEIGHT, C.1890. From the Sir Cecil Armitage Collection. Dating to the second half of the 19th century to early 20th, geometric gold weights were used to weigh gold dust which was the currency of the Ashanti, used largely for the purchase of slaves. These geometric forms, now widely replicated (including those offered in museum shops which came from us), are the originals from the famous collection of Sir Cecil Armitage, Governor of Gambia (1921-27) after an exemplary military career in Africa. Two addorsed segments with line borders flanking loops. Probably representing a proverb as many of these do. Just over 1" in length. Wear from use and good patina.
