Silver cuff link fragment. A flat discoid plate standing proud of a plain rim, with a stamped motif comprising a pair of hearts below an arched crown with joining hands between crown and hearts, the hands projecting from ill-defined marginal features representing their owners. A central scar on the reverse shows the former position of an element connecting this plate with a counterpart. This is a variation upon a romantic theme traditionally associated with loyal celebration of the marriage of Charles II and Catherine of Braganza in 1661. The motif remained popular at least until the Glorious Revolution, in 1688, and some examples of the type are thought to represent Queen Anne (1702-1714). Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1661-1700. In view of its age and material, this object is to be submitted to the Treasure process, ref. 2018 T392.

Diameter: 15.7mm, Thickness (at edge): 0.6mm, Weight: 0.80gms
