Treasure case 2009 T141.

Decorative silver arrow head terminal, made from thin silver sheet and therefore a purely decorative element from some larger ensemble. Perhaps the arrow attribute of a silver figure of a saint such as St Michael?

Late medieval or early modern, perhaps 16th Century.

As such, due to its age and precious metal content, this object qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.
