Title: African manilla, authentic ?
Post by: capnbirdseye on October 31, 2017, 07:02:37 PM
I found this in an antique shop, listed as a  'Celtic style amulet'  the seller had no idea what it was but I recognised it straight away.

It looks more like a locally made African type rather than the mass produced types from Europe or elsewhere. There is no way to tell the age of these as modern copies are made for sure & this may well be one  but I think not
