The benefit of putting a stamp on dungeon ware is that if anyone finds it (and the person it is attached to), you immediately know where they belong. This Leavenworth Prison Iron Ball and Chain is a classic example of how they detained prisoners in history. This simple yet impressive dungeon decoration is patterned after the classic example of a ball and chain, which was historically used in both American and England, as well as in other nations and kingdoms across the globe. It is a relatively simple in form, consisting of an iron ball that is connected to a pair of chains, which are secured around the prisoners leg to keep them from moving too far. This particular model is a solid metal ball with an antique finish, which gives it both a realistic look and feel, as well as a hefty weight that borders nicely on realism. The ball also features a stamp around the center which identifies it as a piece of equipment from the Leavenworth Penitentiary in Kansas. The ball weighs approximately 18 pounds. With such a significant weight and realistic appearance, this Leavenworth Prison Iron Ball and Chain makes for a great display piece and collectible, as well as a fantastic prop to use when realism is going to be your number one concern.
