A hoard of 17 coins, 10 of which are gold and 7 of which are silver, of various denominations, issue, and date. Details are in the attached catalogue. The vessel is a Bartmann jug of the Frechen ceramic industry (Rhineland, Germany), of a form dating to 1551-1700. The vessel is 134mm in height and bears the distinctive mottled brown glaze of the kilns of Frechen. Notably, the jug bears evidence for a missing oval boss fixed to the body opposite the handle. The hoard was probably deposited soon after 1562, based on the date of the latest coin and the degree of wear visible. This da…

A medieval finger-ring formed of a slightly convex band decorated on the exterior surface with a series of indentations, probably intended to represent tears. Tears are known to have had romantic associations in the Middle Ages (e.g, pendant with tears from the British Museum, PE 1979,1103.1). The finger-ring is likely to have been a gift between lovers. The band of the ring is slightly bent and there is one break. Inside the hoop is an inscription that reads: OF HIROLLT IS IOYE The meaning of the second word is unclear. The reading is rendered more difficult due to the break…
