I made a printout of the photo and comparing with Darbies I own
which measure 65mm by 50mm the cuffs on the photo look exactly the same.
I was told the same sizes in an email from the seller.
Unless HIATT managed to shrink cuffs preserving proportions perfectly.
About types, anyone else?

Yossie says his Lady Darbies are 2" by 1.5".
Darbies of size 58mm by 48mm are said to have been used in a female prison.
Maybe as Yossie's item looks older maybe the typical female wrist size has
increased during time?
Has HIATT actually marketed cuffs as "lady darbies" ?
