Plain ivory bracelets are found among a number of African peoples. They are invariably prized as emblems of status and wealth. While the donor identified this bracelet as Guro, it could just as easily come from the nearby Baule peoples.
Ivory cylindrical bracelet with rounded profile and overall dark orange-brown color; darker on inside and in spots.
