West Africans.

They Were Used For Centuries--As Late As The Mid Twentieth Century-

-As Ornaments, Currency And Sources Of Metal For Casting By Local Artisans In

SouthEastern Nigeria And Benin.

Earlier Use Of Manillas Goes Further Back In Time, Although Their Origins Are

Unclear. Various Accounts Attribute The Earliest Versions To Ancient Phoenician,

Celtic, Carthaginian Or Egyptian Ornaments.

Over The Centuries That Followed Many

Different Types Were Manufactured By Every European Country That Was Engaged In

Trade With West Africa. Ships Laden With Manillas Would Find Them To Be Readily

Accepted In Trade For The Area’s Ivory, Timber, Slaves, Cloth And Palm Oil. The

Copper Metal Content, Sizes And Shapes Varied Over Time As The Style Preferences
