Object type: BEAD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A spherical hollow copper-alloy artefact of probable post-medieval date: either a bead or a pin head. The object is formed of two hemispheres of sheet copper alloy joined by white metal solder at their respective bases. The top of each is perforated at its centre with a hole of c. 2.4mm diameter. Around each hole radiates multiple small, fine incisions. Also radiating from each hole, at seven equally spaced points, are diverging pairs of incised lines that extend to a circumferential incision just before the centre of the object. As these lines approach the centre of the object each i…

A fragment from a post-medieval spherical animal bell ('crotal') cast in copper alloy (c. 17th century AD). The fragment consists of part of the lower half, part of the median rib, and a smaller part of the upper hemisphere, with ragged breaks and one broadly straight edge - the sound slot. One of the upper hemisphere's sound holes has been broken through; this and a counterpart would have been set at right angles to the sound slot. A shield shaped cartouche abuts the slot and may bear initials, now hard to discern. The lower half beyond is decorated with a lobed 'sun burst' pattern, …

A fragment from the top of a bell of unknown date. The suspension loop is rounded a perforated. It is recessed on both sides compared to the top of the bell. From the few vestiges that survive the bell appears circular rather than faceted, and is fairly solidly cast. The breaks are ragged and old. There is a possible trace of iron corrosion product internally below the loop. The fragment is 20.5mm long, up to 15.9mm wide and up to 12.3mm thick; it weigh 6.99 grams.

A fragment of a cast copper-alloy spherical animal bell (crotal) of post-medieval date. The fragment comprises half of the lower of two hemispherical domes, the hemisphere naturally divided in two by the sound slot, and vestiges of the upper hemisphere broken around a sound hole, together with a raised circumferential join. The upper hemisphere would have had two circular sound holes with a rectangular tab projecting from the top between them. The upper hemisphere is seemingly plain from the small amount that survives. The sound slit on the lower hemisphere is flanked by an indente…

A bent hook-piece from a copper-alloy post-medieval book-clasp. It is sub-rectangular in shape, with a slightly flared attachment end; the other end is squared off with a central rectangular curved hook. At the flared end is a single central rivet hole; the head of a copper-alloy rivet is corroded in place. A second corroded rivet head is located around two thirds of the way along the clasp. On the upper surface possible curvilinear decoration can possibly be discerned below the hook. Anything beyond is obscured by corrosion product; there is a circular discolouration around the ri…

A medieval copper-alloy plate from a hinged plate-and-loop type book clasp dating from the late 14th or early 15th century. Only vestiges of the loop survive in situ around the copper-alloy axis bar at the narrow end of the plate (width 6.9mm). The plate was formed of one piece folded over on itself at the narrow end, this latter recessed to the sides to accommodate the loop. Each sheet is trapezoidal, expanding from the loop end to the attachment end which is straight. At the attachment end there is a rivet hole in each corner; both rivets survive in place. This example measures 2…

An incomplete copper-alloy plate almost certainly from a medieval clasp. Half of the plate survives here, following a transverse break at the fold. The plate is sub-rectangular, with no frame recesses at the fold. There is a decoratively shaped attachment end, now slightly damaged but originally with four triangular cut-outs which would have created five knops, including those at the corners. Two knops have been broken off towards one of the corners (old damage). Engraved angled lines at the base of each knop emphasise each protrusion on the front. The front is decorated within a very…

A large quatrefoil cruciform mount with central boss cast in copper alloy of medieval date. The base of the mount consists of four trefoil arms, each with a rivet hole in the centre; parts of three rivets survive in situ. The edge of the base is bevelled. The arms are arranged at the cardinal points around a circular domed central boss with a stepped base and small flattened top. The surface of the boss has flattened strips and file marks suggesting that the object has been turned. The reverse of the boss is hollow. The object has a mid-green shiny patina. One of the sides of one of th…

A rectangular pierced copper-alloy plate, probably a medieval book clasp of Howsam type A.7. It would have been riveted to an equivalent plate by four rivets, located one towards each corner. The rivets have a circular cross-section, and all four survive in situ, their head flush to the surface of the plate. The plate is cusped to emphasise the corners, by an engraved V shape central at each short end, and smaller V-shaped lines towards the corner on the long edge. There are further, finer engraved lines between these latter, at each corner. There are also suggestions of incised diagon…

A copper-alloy book clasp (hook piece) of late medieval or early post-medieval date. The artefact is generally flat a sheet-like, but has been bent slightly as a result of old damage. The main body takes the form of a lozenge truncated at each end. At the attachment end there is a basic, rectangular transverse protrusion on each side with an abraded terminal beyond. The rectangular arrangement is echoed at the other end of the lozenge. Beyond this, is a flared terminal with two notches that create a low central triangle. A separate iron rivet is retained within the flared terminal at i…

A twisted fragment consisting of approximately a quarter of a cast copper-alloy bracelet or armlet of late Roman date (c. 4th century AD). The fragment consists of the bracelet's terminal, the hook end, with abraded hook extant. The bracelet is rectangular with rounded corners in cross-section. In profile it has been twisted to one side, then round on itself such that it abuts the side of the hooked end at right angles to it. The bracelet expands in width gradually from the hook end. It is decorated unifacially using multiple motifs. What survives on this example is a raised lozenge w…

A damaged fragment from a copper-alloy strip bracelet of late Roman date (c. 4th century AD). The artefact is elongated and sub-rectangular in plan. In profile it has been bent upwards at one end and downwards at the other, distorted from its original curve. The bracelet fragment is decorated unifacially with punched ring-and-dot motifs. These are set within a so-called 'wave crest' motif, the wave crests created by alternating notches, slightly offset, on the upper and lower edge. It bears comparison with a bracelet illustrated in Crummy (1983, 42; 1704). The surviving termina…

A fragment of a Roman copper-alloy bracelet, possibly cut down for reuse as a finger ring. The fragment is bent into a tight C-shape, with its width gradually tapering from one possible original terminal end. The bracelet fragment is decorated on the upper surface with two sets of diagonal lines each emerging from an incised line that runs down the centre of the bracelet, giving the appearance of nested Vs. The terminal end is finished with a transverse groove. As a bracelet this fragment would be classed as one with multiple motifs, a type current from c. AD 350 onwards (see, for exa…

A damaged silver-plated copper-alloy bracelet of late post-medieval date (c. 19th century AD). The bracelet is broadly C-shaped in plan, with a rectangular central portion flanked on each side by an expanded lobe. The front and sides are cast in one, the sides flat and the front convex. A separate plate follows the curved line of the sides and was attached to the edges of the front giving a hollow front. The sides each terminate in a domed mammiform boss with central pellet; these flank the outer surface of the front. Each of the bosses is decorated with narrow depressions around it, …

A body fragment from an early Roman copper-alloy wide-cuff bracelet. The fragment is broadly rectangular, broken at both ends. It has a very shallow curve in profile, exaggerated at one end presumably due to post-depositional damage. In cross-section it is thin and rectangular. The upper surface is decorated longitudinally by an incised border at both edges, within which a grooved channel. Within these is what appears to be a complementary grooved channel within the centre of which sits a ridge decorated with diagonally incised nicks. The effect is of ropework either side of a centra…
