Kyeezees (Burma Bells)

The history of Kyeezees, a.k.a. Burma Bells, is complex and deep.

Here is an excerpt from Far Cathay and Farther India (1893) by Alexander Buxton MacMahon, which shows how meaningful and valuable the kyeezee has been. From getting back a captive, to an item to salve the pain from being jilted by your lover, the kyeezee was there.
