Rooted in ancient folklore, horseshoes have been used to ward off evil and to capture good luck since before Jesus Christ. Celtic people migrating across Northern Europe and the British Isles supposedly encountered "little people", or fairies, who they attributed to spoiling milk, causing infertility, causing hens to not lay eggs, and every other type of misfortune. The fairies were reputed to be afraid of the metal weapons the settlers carried, hence the idea they would also be afraid of a metal horseshoe fastened over a doorway. This golden beauty measures approx. 4.50" across by 5" high. Some believe putting it with the points up will hold luck, while others believe the points down will rain blessings upon any who pass under it. Ships free domestically, Canada and Others, it's very heavy and expensive to ship. You are probably better off finding your own lucky horseshoe closer to home 🙂

There are three tribes in Brazil who still wear this style "Tanga" -a covering for the private areas - that can be worn on the front or back. The Aumeri-atrorari of Para and the Santareimaue and Caraja of Mato Grosso still use this incredible hand-worked style of covering. The palm fiber is Tukuma and the seeds are of Meru, Olho de Cabra and Palmeira. There is no front or back side, they are the same on each side. This is an authentic piece, not made for the tourist market. If you are a collector of South American Amer-Indian pieces, this is definitely an item worth picking up to add to your collection. It measures approx. 12" across at widest point, 6.50" across at bottom and 6" long with seed fringe. The ties, including the woven covering measure 41". It weighs a hefty 13.3 ounces. Ships FREE USPS Priority domestically and USPS First Class International FREE.

Made of copper, brass, and iron, the Portuguese, British and French modeled these metal currency "bracelets" after the heavy copper leg bands, wrist and neck bracelets early Portuguese explorers saw in the 1470's in West Africa. The foreign made "manilla" (manus (hand) in Latin, monilia (necklaces) ), became a hot commodity used for trading in goods, especially for slaves (they weren't made to wear on the wrist). Each local region had different names for each variety and shape of manilla, with the Africans valuing them differently. The price of slaves in exchange for manillas varied greatly depending on the season, location, and type of manilla being offered. Manillas were the first all-purpose type of currency known in West Africa, wildly more valued than cowrie shells, and used for trade or at market buying goods, for bride price, paying diviners, fines, and for burial. With the end of the slave trade, manilla production in Antwerp and Birmingham slowed down, but was still used for palm-oil trade, with the exchange rate manipulated by the native traders to favor. In 1948 the British began a recall named "Operation Manilla", in order to swap them out with the British West African currency equal to 3 Pence for most common manilla, and possibly to halt the manipulation in palm-oil trade. Over 32 million pieces were exchanged for Pence and resold as scrap metal. On April 1, 1949, the manilla ceased to be legal tender in British West Africa; it serves as a historic reminder today of the centuries of slave trade and their role in the purchase of so many who made the Middle Passage to the New World. These British manilla range over various centuries 1600's to early 1800's. Sizes and ages vary from smaller at approx. 2. 3/8" by 2. 1/4", to 2.1/2" plus by 2" 5/8 inches. Weights from 1.8 ounces to 3.1 ounces vary with some small being just as heavy as large. I randomly pick but you can request large or small, I will choose the best possible for you. Ships Domestic US USPS First Class FREE, Canada and all other countries has shipping charge. Comes in cotton filled gift box.
