An incomplete, copper alloy, lugged disc brooch of uncertain date. It has similarities to Roman and Early Medieval brooches, but is probably Post Medieval to Modern, perhaps AD 1750 - 1950.

Copper alloy brooch, as kindly identified by the finder. A thin [1.5mm by 1mm] straight-sided strip of copper alloy with diagonal grooves along the entire length of one side to produce a cabled effect, bent and curled into a form resembling a figure from the notation of sheet music, or possibly a florid initial letter.

Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1850-1900. Length: 30.9mm, Width: 15.7mm, Weight: 1.39gms

Copper alloy and glass brooch fragment. An oval pressed metal frame with eleven of twelve vaguely star-shaped collets equidistantly distributed along its outer band, six still occupied by rounded ruby coloured paste stones. A central oval recess has a pair of drilled holes in its base, presumably for the setting of a larger stone. A trailing vegetal motif and tiny pellets decorate the band between the collets, and there is a finely cabled outer border all around the frame. Slight traces of gilding appear on the display face only, and extend under the settings to brighten the reflectivi…

A copper alloy annular brooch of medieval to post-medieval date (c. 1450 - 1700). The brooch is slightly convex, the inner rim is raised and the surface decorated with moulding, what appears to spatulate leaves around flowers or fruit. The outer edge is chipped and abraded. There is a hole 1.3 mm diameter with some corrosion around and in it, this would probably have housed a wire pin. The back of the brooch appears undecorated. The brooch is very similar to a brooch from the Thames (LON-8492D2). The brooch has an overall diameter of 25.5 mm, the inner aperture is 12.4 mm diameter. Th…

Possible part of a disc buckle or annular brooch, the surface showing evidence of either a copper-alloy proportion in the body of the object or traces of remaining enamel. The upper surface cosists of a circular central raised boss, encircled by a bead border that is in itself enclosed in another, larger circle. These are then totally enclosed by a concave ring and a final outer border. The underside is the reverse of this, except that the beaded border and enclosing concentric circle are reduced to a simpler form.

Damaged fragment of a Post Medieval silver annular brooch. The brooch is formed from a convex strip of silver sheet which has been fractured and distorted at both ends. With the exception of a narrow annular border around the internal circumference there is no decoration. At the broader end a small nominally semi-circular finished edge protrudes into the break suggesting it may possibly be the remnant of a pin attachment hole. Annular brooches with pins that loop through a hole in the annular strip are a well known type, and examples can be seen at WILT-B328BB and WMID-3AF595 on this d…
