The fragment is in the form of a rectangular bar, broken at one end and hammered flat at the other; length, 16 mm; width, 9 mm; thickness, 5 mm. It is decorated with alternating yellow and pale gold overlays with double rows of irregular lozenges of black niello on the top and sides. The underneath is undecorated. The top and sides have been hammered, which has burred the edges underneath. It is uncertain what the fragment may be from, but it is possibly from a bracelet. Jewellery and other fine metalwork in gold decorated with niello are typical of the late Anglo-Saxon period, part…

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified gold object. It consists of an apparently solid truncated cone with concave sides (a bell shape), and a narrow tube set transversely on the top. The tube appears to be hollow (although now filled with soil) and is 10.5 mm long; it is basically 2 mm in diameter, but has a collar of beaded wire around either end and a line of similar beaded wire along the top. The wire is 0.8 mm wide; the beads are regular and rounded, and the bead-count per 2.5 mm is 7. The beads around the ends of the tube are very rubbed and worn, particularly towards the top, so that here they are alm…
