Silver possible cuff link fragment. A die-stamped disc with a sharply indented centre of diameter 5mm whose frayed edges now partly block the aperture. This was presumably the fixing point for an element to connect this object to its counterpart [both lost]. The display face bears a stamped and bordered vegetal design of curled tendrils. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850.
