Object type: RING
Broad period: MODERN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Ring made from plaited silver wire. Each strand of the plait basically consists of six wires, although in places due to the ending of various strands this drops to five or four. The wires in each strand are neatly parallel. The sides of the ring are not straight; they are C-shaped in cross-section, with the exterior of the ring convex and the interior concave. The ring is now slightly squashed, and measures 20 x 16.5 mm externally and 4 mm deep. Similar rings made of plaited groups of silver wires are known across the country; they vary in size, shape and tightness of plait. Wher…

Object type: DRESS FASTENER (DRESS)
Broad period: MODERN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Dress fastener of the type known as a 'cloak-clasp'. It is made of copper alloy with traces of a yellow-metal coating, and has an oval plate decorated with a relief lion's head. When held so that the lion's head is upright, the long axis of the oval is vertical. There is a rectangular loop to the right and a circular loop to the left; the circular loop is perpendicular to the rest of the object. The rectangular loop would have been sewn to one side of the garment, and an identical piece would have been sewn to the other side. One side would have had a short chain ending in a hook,…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MODERN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Very unusual copper-alloy buckle. The frame and plate are cast in one piece, and it is very thick and chunky. The frame is D-shaped, with an animal head at the pin rest. This has a pair of eyebrows which run downwards to form the nose; the nose ends in a large rounded knob. A knobby eye sits below each eyebrow. There do not appear to be any ears. A groove runs around the outer edge of the frame from the outside of each eyebrow and stops at the junction of the frame and plate. In the centre of this junction is a hole for the pin, which survives as a simple piece of strip cut to size an…

Record ID: SF8852
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: MODERN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Possible fragment of purse frame. Now bent out of shape, causing stress to the metal, it appears originally to have been gently curved. It is L-shaped in cross-section, with one longer and thicker arm and one shorter slimmer one. From the edge of the longer thicker arm of the L there are three surviving projections, each 1 mm long and ending in a slightly burred-over edge. It is more usual to have sewing holes in the frame, and the metal has a crisp and in some ways modern appearance. If it is a purse frame, it should date to the late 15th or early 16th century (c. 1450-15…

Record ID: SF4540
Object type: RING
Broad period: MODERN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small asymmetrical copper-alloy ring, 14 mm in diameter, with a 7 mm diameter perforation. The perforation is off-centre but the ring's section is always circular, swelling evenly from 2 mm diameter to 4 mm. Similar rings are known, mostly with deliberate neat holes which show that they are hollow and made from thin metal. They tend to be in good condition, many with obvious seams around the circumference, and a few have a yellow-metal coating or simple corrugated decoration. This one has no visible seam or holes and is in poor condition with a corroded but stable dark-brown surfac…
