Heavy German Leg Shackles, 16th C
Heavy hand forged iron construction with large barrel-shaped locking mechanism; the key plate and part of the inside mechanism missing, so the lock currently does not function. Ankle restraints connected by a 13" length of chain forged of heavy twisted links. Weighs in at over 7 pounds. Corrosion and rust patina, with small rust-through on the lock barrel. These look positively ancient!
