CUFF LINK

Unique ID: LVPL-A6FFD3

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A cast silver die stamped cufflink element of 17th Century dating.

The cuff link consists of a single disc or cuff link element. It is circular in plan, with bevelled edges. . The back is plain and undecorated. The method of attachment is missing. The front has been die stamped with a crown with central cross pattee ornament. Two hearts are below.

This design is believed to be a reference to that of the marriage of Charles II (1660-1685) to Catherine of Braganza in 1662.

It has a diameter of 12.63mm and is 2.50mm thick. It weighs 1.6 grams.

Therefore as the cuff link is older than 300 years, with a probable precious metal content of greater than 10%, it is potentially classified as Treasure under the 1996 Treasure Act and should be declared to the local Coroner. This object has been disclaimed.
