Victorian 1840 - 1860 'Hard' 'D' Leg Irons With No 10 Key By Hiatt of Birmingham. Sn 13907:38 - 13907:38

An original Victorian 1840-1860 set of 'Hard' 'D' leg irons with original number 10 key by Hiatt of Birmingham. Between 1788 and 1868, about 162,000 convicts were transported by the British government to various penal colonies in Australia. The British government began transporting convicts overseas to American colonies in the early 17th century. The last convict ship arrived in Western Australia on 10 January 1868. The leg irons were used as restraints in prisons and on convicts destined for transportation. The leg irons and chain are very heavy weighing 2.4Kg and in excellent original condition. They consist of two cuffs for the ankles and each side has a 10.5" length of chain to a swivel and then a further 10.5 piece of chain to a large 3" diameter ring which was used for attaching the chain to hand cuffs or to ground pins. Both cuffs are stamped with "Hiatt" and "0" and "Hard". They both have a hinge which operates smoothly and both cuffs are opened with the original Hiatt Number 10 key. The key is stamped with "No 10 Hiatt". Both cuffs lock and unlock with the screw key. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13907:38
