A medieval copper alloy annular brooch. The frame is circular in plan, and plano-convex in section. The upper surface of the frame is decorated with six integrally cast turrets spaced evenly around the frame. Each turret is oval in section and has an opening at the top. Three contain traces of green enamel, while the others only retain a white paste that was used to adhere the glass. The spaces between the turrets are each decorated with a half-rounded acorn; each acorn comprises six lines of pellets. A fragment of a copper alloy pin survives.
