Antique African Ironwork (AAI) carries the world's largest selection of artistic and utilitarian objects produced by African blacksmiths that is available for sale. The collection centers on African currency forms, sometimes known as primitive money, odd and curious money, or traditional currency. AAI also focuses on other expressions of African blacksmithing, such as tools, weapons, jewelry, household objects, traditional medicine, musical instruments, religious and ceremonial objects. And we have a beautiful selection of pottery and textiles as well.
Enjoy your visit to this site. We hope an exploration of these pages of this site will lead you to new or greater appreciation for African iron objects and currency forms.
