A complete Silver gilt finger ring of early Modern dating (early 19th Century). Formed of a broad silver hoop, partly gilded; three horizontal bands with punched decoration applied in clumps.

An incomplete silver pin, with a hollow-stamped bird finial, of 19th Century dating. A pin with a hollow-stamped bird finial, in two pieces (the bird is separate); there is nothing comparable in the British Museum collections, but this object is certainly not earlier than the 19th century. As the pin is certainly not earlier than 19th Century, and as it is a single find, it falls outside of the requirements of the Treasure Act 1996 and should not be considered to be Treasure.
