Brass ring devices were developed between 1880 and 1921, in the heyday of the carousel. To encourage riders to take the outside row of horses, which often did not go up and down, the riders were given a challenge of catching rings that were suspended at the end of a wooden arm above the riders. Most rings were iron but one or two were brass. If you manage to catch a brass ring, you would win a prize, often a free ride on the carousel. The name was given to this bracelet because it contains brass rings. Length: 20cm/7.75"
