Offered here is an early 1900s pair of Indian Clubs, also known as Meels. Originating in the Middle East, Indian Clubs, the English name, are actually exercise equipment used in strength training; weighing from several pounds up to 50 pounds. These clubs weigh 3 lbs. each (one is marked) and measure 21 inches tall. There are incised rings around neck, I am guessing a form of grip so the clubs can’t slip from hand when swung or twirled; there is also a ¾ inch beveled ring around the bottom. These clubs were also used by Jugglers. They are not bowling pins. These Indian Clubs are in good aged related condition with smooth patina and color. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
