This ring has been squashed virtually flat so it is difficult to tell what the original section was (ie whether it was more D shaped than it appears now), but the use of the long 'S' in the inscription suggests a 17th century date. Part of the inscription is illegible because if the damage to the ring, but I am fairly sure that the full wording would have been: 'God for ever bless us together'. A similar inscription is recorded by Joan Evans in her book on posy rings of 1930. In this instance the words 'for ever' are missing. The inscription is preceded by what must be a maker's mar…

A silver circular band, called a hawking ring or vervel, inscribed on both faces with the owner's name and address. The inscription refers to 'Sr Thomas Luci * // of Charlecote'. Contemporary records attest to three successive Sir Thomas Lucys, between 1551 and 1640. Vervels are metal rings employed in falconry that were used to attached the jess (the leather strap around the bird's ankle) to the leash, which could then be held in the falconer's hand or secured to a perch or block.

Silver gilt cap-hook. A nine-petalled flower with a central boss from which radiate closely spaced grooves. The outer edge of the petals are angled downwards. The plate is flat on the reverse with a soldered silver hook which is bent back on itself to form an s-shape. The front of the plate is gilded. 16th century silver gilt cap-hooks are illustrated in Gaimster et al (2002, 170 - 171, fig.13 - 15) although none are a close parallel for this example.

Flat annular disc, made of silver, inscribed on both sides. Similar hawking vervels or hawk rings dating to the 17th century have been reported under the Treasure Act.

The object represents the missing handle from the late 17th century seal matrix previously found on the site by Mr Barlow (Treasure case 2005 T16, Treasure Annual Report 2005-6, Item 806). An examination of the two parts shows that they join perfectly along a hackly fracture line leaving no doubt that they are parts of the same silver matrix.
