Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MODERN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Modern white-metal wire finger ring. The hoop is formed of two narrow strips of wire, which are twisted together into three knots on the bezel, a larger complex knot in the centre flanked by two smaller ones. The wire has a square cross-section. This ring was examined by the British Museum to decide whether it should be reported as Treasure. Barry Ager commented that the square section of the wire suggests probable machine manufacture; Judy Rudoe commented that it was likely to be not earlier than the 19th century. In addition, the ring is similar to KENT-697734 (2013T52), which w…

Cut sheet copper alloy shoe or clog clasp (male fitting), which would have been used with a similar hasp (female fitting) to secure a wooden shoe (overshoe) to the foot.

Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed gilt copper alloy button with separate soldered attachment loop, embossed with the Royal coat of arms, consisting of a crowned garter with a lion to the left and unicorn to the right, with the legend HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE (the French phrase meaning: "Shamed be he who thinks evil of it") within the Royal Garter.

Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed gilt copper alloy naval button with separate soldered attachment loop, embossed with the crown of George III to William IV c.1760-1837 (Meredith & Cuddeford, 1997, 42) over a the 'foul' anchor, where the anchor is entangled with a cable, within linear and ropework borders, and on a background of parallel transverse incised lines. The back of the button is too corroded and encrusted to make out the back mark and only the base of the attachment loop remains. In 1774 a foul anchor surrounded by rope edging took the place of the rose and in 17…

Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed copper alloy button with separate soldered attachment loop at the back. The front of the button depicts, in relief, the Prince of Wales plume of three feathers within a coronet with the motto ICH / DIEN in a scroll on either side. The three feathers and the motto "lch Dien", German for "I Serve", go back to Edward (1330-1376), the eldest son of Edward III. He was known as the 'Black Prince' because he had his suit of armour painted black, a very unusual thing at the time. He later became the Prince of Wales and the three feathers and coronet…

Cast lead bullet with hollow core, cylindrical in shape and sub-circular in section, with three incised parallel lines around its circumference at the mid point. The bullet has been bent and flattened through use, from the impact it received when hitting a hard surface, once it had been fired. The diameter of the bullet has been distorted by the impact and when perfectly round, would probably have been about 16 mm. From the diamater and weight of this bullet, it appears to be a 0.625 (16 mm) bullet from an English Baker rifle type, originally the Pattern 1800 Infantry Rifle, but refer…
