Gold; finder’s analysis suggests 22 carat. Brooch. Frame of a brooch of oval or rhomboid form. A thin cast moulded front of curvilinear floral design inhalf relief is attached to a flat back-plate, so the body of the brooch is actually hollow. Front and back are crimped together to provide a setting for an oval stone (now lost). The field of the display face has a slightly rough or stippled surface, so as to emphasise the decorative detail which it surrounds. A long strand of gold wires was wound about the central setting, and at least seven wires each terminating in a small pelle…

A gold brooch formed into the shape of an asymmetric heart. Such brooches were used as love tokens during this period and some surviving examples carry inscriptions of amatory intent. This brooch lacks any inscription. A 14th century, asymmetric heart brooch, richly enamelled with flowers, can be found in the British Museum (Af 2701). For a simpler and closer comparison in silver, recently acquired by the British Museum, see Treasure Annual Report 2000, no.140 (Weeting-with-Broomhill, Norfolk).
