Unique ID: WMID3883

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers

The wings are sub-rectangular in plan. Protruding from the central edge of the wings and bow head is an integral fragment of wire which is folded back over the bow head forming a small hook. Protruding from the reverse of the wings, in the centre below the hook there is a second more narrow short length of wire which is curved forming a 'C' shape. This second protrusion is a fragment of the spring. The bow head is slightly hump-like leading to a curved and incomplete bow. The bow is broken above the catchplate. The bow is narrow and sub-oval in cross-section. The brooch has lost its original surface.
