A medieval finger-ring formed of a flat band engraved with flowers and the French inscription EN ETRENN This may perhaps be taken to signify '├ętrennes', meaning a New Year's gift. The damage to the ring makes a full reading impossible. The finger-ring is silver and dates from the fifteenth century. Consequently, in terms of age and as the object contains a minimum of 10% precious metal it qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.
