A medieval brooch formed in a ring with two collets measuring about 9mm high; one is set with a garnet and the other with a sapphire. From these collets springs a foliate tendril which creates an openwork appearance, being attached to the main body of the brooch at the loop and point of the pin. Where the point of the pin meets the hoop of the brooch there is a small lozenge engraved with a cross.

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).

Gold disc, originally flat, and with an empty rectangular collared setting at its centre, surrounded by four small subsidiary collared settings, each of which contains a round semi-opaque greyish glass cabochon, perhaps intended to imitate pearls. Each collared setting is encircled with beaded wire, as is the outer edge of the disc. From the corners of the central setting, four radiating strips of flattened beaded wire, set edge-on, divide the disc into four segments; within each segment, the glass cabochons are flanked by stylized foliate plant sprays executed in the same edge-on bea…
