Catalogue Description: Wristlets, or ketohs, were originally worn on a man's left arm as a guard against the snap of a bowstring. By the turn of the century, however, they were generally worn for purely decorative purposes. Ornamented by silver plate, they are backed with a leather band that laces closed.
