Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A cast copper-alloy Thealby type brooch. Thealby type brooches developed from the earlier Headstud brooch. At the apex of the head there is a complete chain loop, now corroded and pitted. The wings are short and decorated with vertical, parallel grooves. Above the head (below the loop) there are two incised, parallel lines – forming three ridges. The wings have a rectangular section and a hinge mechanism has been built into the head, it is slightly lop-sides. The hinge mechanism has been damaged, resulting in the loss of the hinge and pin. The bow is long, thin and tapers to the foot. It is undecorated. The foot is rounded and has the large catchplate behind, now badly damaged. The brooch survives in a fair condition but shows some pitting to the surface. Similar to Hattatt, 2007, p333, Fig: 192.
