Afrikanisches Reichtum-Amulett

Often identified with the Asante peoples, brass weights for measuring gold dust were used throughout Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire. Each party to a trade would check the gold using their own weights, that would be both practical and prestige objects. Our pendants featuring weights such as the double snake, sandals and royal fan are copied from brass weights from measuring gold dust, now in the collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art.
