Description

Akan goldweight figures were used as a measuring system by the Akan people of Africa. The gold weights were used to weigh gold dust which was used as currency before money and coins were invented.  Locally they are known as mrammou, and the weights are made of brass using the lost-wax casting method. However, this erotic weight was not made to weigh gold dust, but was made to use as decoration or selling purposes.


We have over 20 similar weights like these, so if you purchase one then yours will be very similar to the one on the picture.

 

If you purchase 2 or more of these brass weights, the shipping costs will only be calculated once.
