    Hi,

    just bought this antique bronze (very heavy!) bangle bracelet.
    Not sure why it has 2 hinges, but doesn't seem to be able
    (or meant to!) to hinge. Great patina and color.
    No maker's mark, so I don't know who made it.

    Is this possibly a Roman or Native American bracelet?
    Does anyone know how old this is?

    Thanks,

    Nessa

      Really doesn't look nearly old enough to be ancient Roman & Native Americans did not smelt metals before honky's took over the neighbourhood.

      I always thought that these large copper rings were "Nose Rings" for bulls. The farmer would drill though the septum/nostrils and affix this ring that he could later use with a hooked stick to drag his bulls around. I hope that it doesn't sound too crazy but that's what I know about these things.

      Interesting........that would explain why the hinges aren't hinges........
