Silver possible bracelet fragment. A sub-rectangular plate with outwardly bowed long edges and straight ends, and with a sub-rectangular loop at either end from which broken spurs project. These suggest the object continued, perhaps as a series of similar segments. The display side of the plate bears a plain border from which two opposed spurs project into a textured field bearing a reversed S-shaped area of rounded scales. This has a fat vermiform appearance and a triangular indentation in one scale at one end of the textured area might be regarded as an eye. This does not, however, resemble early medieval renditions of reptilian or bestial subjects. The finder kindly notes from his internet research that the texture may have served as a backing for enamel, now lost, from a relatively recent item of costume jewellery. This reporter concurs. The finder further notes the lack of a hallmark: if used, this may, of course, have appeared elsewhere on the object. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900.
