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

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

The collar.

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

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.
