Modern object; repousse silver disc with fleury cruciform design. There is also a very corroded copper alloy backing disc. The British Museum curators' report is as follows: "Silver disc, punched from thin sheet with cruciform design, each arm of cross ending in tendrils. Edge turned down. Separate copper alloy disc, damaged, originally fitted into the back. The function of this object is unclear, consequently it is not easy to date it. The backing shows no sign of attachment. The artefact has been seen by Anglo-Saxon, Romano-British and Medieval curators who regard it as post-medie…

Cast copper alloy brooch, circular in plan and flat in section. The edge of the brooch is defined by a ropework border, made up of groups of four raised oblique lines, alternating with plain sections. The interior of the decorated face holds a central bifid arch of foliage, ending in three points, and bordered above by nine circular beads and below by seven. This pattern, with internal foliage and external beading, resembles a 'paisley' print, brought to Scotland from India in the early 19th century. There are more patterns of foliage above the arch, but most of these are obscured by t…

18th-20th century curved decorative fragment possibly from a brooch.A curved, decorative fragment, confirmed as not Roman by a Romano-British specialist; its exact function unclear, but possibly part of a brooch. Though Renaissance in ornament-style, it appears to be a modern cast, and thus dateable post-1706. As such, this object does not qualify as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Copper alloy plate brooch, cast in the shape of an elongated bow. The brooch is complete with a copper alloy hinged pin and catchplate on the reverse. The surface of the brooch is highly corroded with traces of silvering or tinning on the front. The front of the brooch also has red-orange enamel, however there are no raised fields in which the enamel would have been contained. The design on the front of the brooch is unclear due to the level of corrosion. The reverse of the brooch is almost completely black in colour, with a small amount of copper showing through. The brooch is 34mm lo…

Copper alloy Brooch. A cast openwork brooch with the stub of the setting for a swivelling pin and a loop to engage its point on the reverse. The design comprises three open diamond shapes or rhomboids linked by a pair of elongated ovals, the effect resembling a simple knot.

Suggested date: Modern, 1800-1900. Length: 44.6mm, Width: 12.0mm, Thickness: 1.8mm, Weight: 1.89gms.

A round boss of diameter 3.3mm is set at each angle of each of the two intersecting squares. A separate beaded setting retains a purple coloured translucent stone, probably of plano-convex form; the convex surface was apparently decorated with radial lines, though the stone is now shattered. Traces of gilding remain on the display face. The end of a hinged pin fastening remains …

White Metal and copper alloy Brooch. Pressed metal of thickness circa 0.5mm, the front from a hollow composite discoid uniform button. An oval loop of copper alloy has been inserted in the back, and is flanked by the stubs of an attached hinged pin and a loop to receive its pointed end. The design on the front is the Royal Arms, with Lion and Unicorn flanking a crowned garter and shield of Arms with a small lion walking right above the crown. The finder suggests this may be silver, but its light weight may suggest some other white metal. The object was perhaps adapted for a British…

2008 T663 Post-Medieval silver artefact British Museum Report: Silver artefact, cast, baluster shaped, with two terminals. On the back remains of two projecting knops at either end, perhaps originally for a brooch fitting, now missing. On the back also a maker's mark perhaps GM and a hallmark resembling a lion passant. I am uncertain as to how to place this object. Its function or dating is unclear, but from the facture it would seem to me modern, almost certainly post 1709. Therefore, in all probability, this item is not Treasure as stipulated by the Treasure Act 19…
