CHAMBA, GONG SET CURRENCY 124, Nigeria

These iron forms functioned as gongs, but could also have been used as currency. These can be hung on a wall or stand on their own, each time taking a new configuration.

We have some mounted on magnetic stands which also allows for many different positions. The height in inches on those includes the stand as pictured. The number of gongs per set vary from 5.5 to 12.5, with .5 indicating a very small or broken off remnant. This set has 8.5 pieces plus 1 small piece on the ring.

The price of the stand is included.
