Two very similar middle or late Anglo-Saxon copper alloy ansate brooches with lobed terminals and three transverse moulded ribs and two grooves in the centre of the bow.

On both reverses there is a short high catchplate (one incomplete) and a double pin lug with iron spindle. Lengths 39.3 and 40.4mm. Width of both 6.4mm.

Thörle 2001 Typ East Harling, and is closely related to Thörle's Gruppe XII A 1 Typ Domburg and Hübener 1972 Gruppe 9. More recently this group has been revised by Weetch (2013) to become her Type XII.Aii, East Harling type, and dated to the 9th or 10th century.
