Pin from an annular brooch made of cast copper alloy. One end is tightly bent round to make the loop, and has a little moulding on the underside where the end meets the rest of the pin. Just beyond this, there is a rectangular raised panel on the top of the pin, with faint decoration of five transverse grooves with short oblique grooves in between. The shaft of the pin is squarish in section and tapers to a fairly fresh break. Surviving length 50 mm, external diameter of loop 11.5 mm, maximum thickness 5 mm.

Copper-alloy annular brooch of medieval date, now bent and broken. The frame is of flattish section, 2.5 mm wide; it is interrupted by six collets, each 4 mm tall, which retain white adhesive but which have lost their gem or glass settings. At one point the frame is broken; this may be where the pin constriction was, but there is now no evidence for it. The pin is missing. Original diameter perhaps c. 30 mm.

Pin from an annular brooch, made of cast copper alloy. The loop is now incomplete (fresh break). Both shaft and loop are square or rectangular in section and there is a long rectangular moulding at the top of the shaft. These mouldings commonly have grooved decoration, but this one is undecorated. The tip has a cutaway or worn curve on its underside, which would have allowed it to sit comfortably on the brooch frame. There are no tooling marks which might suggest that this curve is original; it is highly polished, which might suggest that it is due to wear. 45 mm long in total.

Half of an annular brooch frame made of copper alloy, D-shaped in cross-section with a groove around the outer edge. The top has transverse grooves dividing it into eleven panels of varying length, alternately undecorated and raised into collets, some of which still have surviving white adhesive which would originally have been used to fix gems into place. At one end (at bottom on scan) a tiny stub of a narrow broken pin constriction can be seen. The frame is 3 mm wide and the collets are 3 mm tall. The original diameter of the brooch would have been c. 30 mm in diameter.

Half of a heavy cast copper-alloy circular ring, 48 mm in diameter and oval in section (6 x 5 mm). There is no decoration on the ring. It could easily be a 14th-century annular brooch frame, but it might just possibly instead be a suspension ring, e.g. for a 15th-century hanging laver.

A silver-gilt medieval open-frame brooch. The brooch is complete and survives in good condition. The symmetrical frame is oval, each side taking the form of a double-headed creature whose two necks spring from an oval central moulding with scaled surface. A pelleted line extends down the centre of each semicircular-sectioned length of neck, linking the central moulding to two identical heads. These heads of the creatures have flat, furrowed brows, flanked on either side by a pair of low-moulded, upward-angling ears, which are worn. The pellet eyes are situated adjacent to near-vert…

Silver annular brooch. The frame is circular, 22 mm in diameter, and circular in section, nearly 2 mm in diameter. There is no decoration on the frame and it is fractured at one point. The pin is also silver, and oval in section. The loop has been made by splitting the end of the pin in half down the middle and bending both halves around the frame. One half has been cut off short so that they overlap on one face but not the other. On the overlapping half, halfway down the pin is a tiny flattened area with 5 transverse ribs. This could be decoration, but is so small and insignificant (…

Copper-alloy annular brooch of medieval date. The frame is circular and undecorated, a flattish triangle in section and crudely made. There is a slight pin constriction, the steps down to this perhaps now worn away to a slope, on which a copper-alloy pin swivels. The pin is of the same flat crude construction as the frame; just over half of it survives, a 4 mm wide strip with one end bent under to form the loop. There is a black coating on the frame and pin.

Small annular brooch made from copper alloy. The frame is roughly circular, a quarter-circle in section with filemarks on the reverse. There is a pin constriction cut into the outer edge only, and opposite this a grooved pin rest. The pin constriction has a moulding to either side and there are four further similar narrow mouldings at uneven intervals around the frame. Pin missing. Not very well made, but of a nice shiny green metal. External diameter 15-16 mm, width of frame 1-2 mm.

Cast copper-alloy pin from an annular brooch. Large and chunky, it has an open loop, a rectangular-section shaft, a moulding with four transverse grooves at the top of the shaft, and a shaped tip. The underside of the tip is curved, either deliberately or through wear, so that the pin can fit neatly on the frame of the brooch. As the top edge and the sides also have a slight waist just before the curve starts on the underside, it seems likely that the curve is deliberate and not just due to wear. Filemarks are visible on the sides of the pin.

Incomplete copper-alloy pin from an annular brooch. The loop is broken (worn break) and there is a moulding at the junction of shaft and loop which is decorated with two transverse grooves. The tip is upturned, apparently as a result of impact. Surviving length 41 mm.

Copper-alloy annular brooch, D-shaped in section, with a single collet containing white adhesive. Opposite the collet (at 6 o'clock to its 12 o'clock) is a projection with a groove along the top and three slanting grooves running down either side. On some brooches these projections are made in the form of a pair of hands and this decoration might be derived from this motif. At 3 o'clock is a pin constriction on which a slender copper-alloy pin survives, with simple flattened and bent-round loop. The basic diameter of the brooch frame is 20 mm; the addition of the collet and the pro…

Copper-alloy annular brooch. Circular and 20.5 mm in diameter, it is rectangular in cross-section (3.5 x 1.5 mm). One face is decorated with an engraved black-letter inscription. There is a pin constriction on which the loop of a copper-alloy pin survives, and opposite this a shallow grooved pin rest. The inscription is difficult to read, but starts domine ne. It can be completely reconstructed with the help of the very similar SF-52ADB1 as domine ne [pin rest] in furore tu[o] (O Lord, do not rebuke me in thine anger). Another similar example is recorded on th PAS database (LON-D6A…

Copper-alloy annular brooch, complete with pin. The frame is 22 mm square and a truncated triangle in cross-section. The narrow flat top is decorated with a line of rouletting; the pattern is very small, but appears to be a zigzag line crossed by a longitudinal line. The external edge of each side has two deep incurves with a grooved chevron in between. The inner edges have grooved decoration, all approximating to three chevrons, but in some cases rather badly made. The shaping of the external edges means that the corners appear to project, and each is cut off by a groove. There …

Small silver annular brooch. The frame is circular, 17 mm in diameter and just over 2 mm wide, and is flat on one face and slightly rounded on the other. It is decorated on the rounded face with two lines of zigzag engraving forming a row of lozenges; the engraving is made by rocking the tool very slightly to and fro. There is a pin constriction on which a silver pin survives; this has a transverse ridge at the junction between the wrapped-around loop and the tapering shaft.
