Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete copper alloy dress hook or hooked tag dating to the early post medieval period, Class E, type 3 dating from 1500-1550. The main body of the hooked tag is oval shaped and convex. It is decorated with moulded relief depicting a classical style human bust in profile. There is a raised border running around the edge of the main body. A rectangular loop would have attached below the bust, this is now worn and broken. The hook projects from the top of the bust, this has been bent out of shape and is almost 90 degrees from the main body. It is also possibly worn and broken, missing part of the hook. The hooked tag has a light green patina, and measures 30.1mm in length, 12.5mm in width, 3.7mm in thickness, and 1.89g in weight.

The same hooked tag can be seen in Read 2008, 93, 334.
