A complete copper alloy dress hook dating to the post medieval period (AD 1500 - AD 1700).

The dress hook comprises of a trefoil shaped main plate, decorated with a openwork knot design. Each running-end of the knot terminates in a plain pellet, which marks the join between the main plate and the sub-rectangular attachment loop. A D-sectioned hook extends centrally from the base of the main plate and curved backwards. The reverse is flat and undecorated.

The metal is worn and greyish green in colour. The dress hook is 31.7 mm long, 18.0 mm wide and 1.8 mm thick. It weighs 2.0 g.

Comparable trefoil designs are depicted in Read (2008, p. 110, no. 436) and classified as Read Class E, Type 5.
