UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT

Unique ID: LVPL-D76246

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

A complete copper alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object consists of a long hook, measuring 85mm in length before it curves, tapering in width to a rounded point. The hook is circular in cross-section. At the top of the object the hook expands and flattens to form an integral loop. The loop has an internal diameter of 14mm.
The object has a mid-green patina and is undecorated. It is in fair condition.


Dimensions: 85mm in length, 20mm in width (at the loop), 8.60g.


The exact function of the object is unknown however the form and lack of decoration suggests it was utilitarian. A post-medieval date is likely.
