Anglo-Saxon copper alloy cruciform brooch side knob, 14mm long and 10mm wide. The object is in fair condition with a brown patina and weighs 3.81 grams.

Below this is a collar, the same circumference as the knop and 3mm wide, which has three incised bands running along it. The base of this is flat and it has a rectangular protrusion, 5mm long, emerging out of one side. This protrusion would have fixed the knob onto the headplate of the brooch.

Part of a copper alloy Anglo-Saxon Cruciform brooch, 57mm long and 46mm wide. The foot of the brooch is missing (old break) as is the left knob which appears to have been lost recently, you can see from the one remaining that it is weakened along the edge of the headplate and a crack is forming which explains the loss. The brooch is quite crudely cast with very simple angular decoration. The knobs have an indented line and a further incised line across their bases. The headplate has traces of decoration, in the form of a line of cutaway triangles running vertically up the plate. The r…
