Dear friends,

as you know, I've specialized somewhat in pre-1900 irons and cuffs. Here are some non-standard restraints I've collected over the last years. None of these are for sale at the moment. Anything new on your end/s?

Have a good weekend,
Nils



A. Handcuff from France. Triangular key. Note the dot markings on the bow.




B. Bagno-type handcuffs from France.




C. A collar from Austria. Several locking positions, but no lock.






D. Clip-lock leg irons from France. Cow kickers?




E. Handcuffs from Austria. Bagno type.




F. & G. Darby handcuffs, also from France. No maker's mark. Hiatt copy?

Great items Nils, hopefully you will be able to attend the 2017 convention and bring some of your items for us to see.

Good stuff Nils.

FYI, the collar is for tethering a farm animal.

It is not a human restraint.

Cheers, Steve

Very nice items. I of course like the Darby cuffs. Is the F & G Darby marked? Do you know what F & G stands for?
thanks for sharing

Joe, F & G just stands for the type of cuff in the pics, like A, B, C, 1, 2, 3.

I have some doubts about the collar as well, however, it is human size. I didn't want to write anything, because it wanted to hear what you guys think.

Who can tell us more about these older bagnos? So far I have reference to them coming from Germany, Austria and Italy. Maybe they are like the Dollar cuffs, we may never know, or they come from all those places, but these are obviously from the same manufacturer. The only difference I can see is the finial at the bottom of the blueish photo.
There is no locking device as such like the newer bagnos with provision for a padlock, but a tight fitting padlock or a rope might do.
