One of two rattles that were originally described as charms by Alldridge, but are actually leg or arm rattles worn by dances and other public performers. They are made from a flat oval piece of iron that is bent over to form a rattle. There is a loop at each end, with two additional loops attached to it that rattle when the wearer moves.
