Silver Venetian soldino of one of the Doges of Venice, Leonardo Loredan, issued from 1501-1521 in Venice, Type 9. Soldinos were known as the galyhalpens (galley-halfpence) as they were brought into the country by the annual Venetian trading fleets. The soldino was about the size of English halfpennies and was popular because of a contemporary lack of small change; soldini in fact occur as English finds more often than proper halfpennies of the period.

Sherd of pottery of a red fabric, slightly curved with moulded decoration on the incurved side and a smooth exterior surface. Both surfaces are coated with a bright terracotta slip, but Roman Samian would have had a clear slip and this appears painted to make them more orange in colour, suggesting that this is a modern imitation. The sherd is also untypical of genuine Samian ware in that the moulded decoration is on the inside of the vessel. The moulded decoration shows a cherub in a short flowing tunic holding a flower in one hand with a bowl of flowers in the background. The style of…

Incomplete Langton Down strip brooch dating from the early Roman period, made of a strip of thin copper alloy sheet metal, folded into a tube at the top to hold the pin mechanism. Only one of the wings and the bow of the brooch survive with a tapering body with three broad parallel longitudinal grooves down the front face. The foot, catchplate, pin, spring mechanism and one of the wings are all missing. The brooch appears to have been coated in a black substance, perhaps burnt organic material having been part of a cremation burial, which has since rubbed off on the upstanding surfaces…

A cast copper alloy oval setting containing an opaque blue glass intaglio, with a trace of a red border around the edge of intaglio and a bevelled edge to the copper alloy frame. The red material is probably setters wax, made of shellac and turpentine or resin, which was used to hold the glass intaglio within the frame. There is a trace of white substance on the edges of the frame of the intaglio, perhaps lead solder. The intaglio depicts a bust of a head facing right. The image appears to be a male head wearing a wig with layers of curls, that is tied at the back of the head, and with…

Cut farthing of a silver long cross penny of Henry III (1207-1272), Long Cross coinage (1247-1272), probably from Classes I - IV, as the inscription on the obverse appears to begin at 12 o'clock.

This arrangement appears with the mints of Exeter, Oxford and York. The Exeter mint was active during the production of Classes IIa-IIIc, and Oxford and York were active during the production of Classes II…

Silver cut half of a short cross penny of John (1199-1216) or Henry III (1216-1272), dating from Class 5c (1207-1210) to Class 7a (1217-1222). The penny has been cut slightly off-centre, with the result that the only letters visible are L.ON. on the reverse. The most likely moneyer is therefore Abel who minted Class 5c-7a coins in London from c.1207-1222.

A gilded copper alloy box chape of Medieval date. The chape element is square in plan, hollow and open at the attachment end to accommodate the strap, with two iron rivets still in place to secure the strap, which would have been 2 mm thick and 26 mm wide.

The mount is patinated with the pinky brown of the abraded copper surface showing through and it appears to have been …
