A cast copper alloy spoon finial (length: 34mm; width at shoulders of blade: 13mm; thickness at shoulders of blade: 3mm; weight: 3.03g).

The blade tapers fairly gently from shoulders to the blade where the forked tip has been broken off to form a jagged edge. The front of the blade has been engraved/ incised with possible animal motifs. This decoration, however, is fairly crude and mostly consists of unidentifiable linear markings. The overall condition of the artefact is fai…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy post medieval double loop buckle frame. 28.3mm long, 27.1mm wide, 2.5mm thick and 3.4 grams in weight. One loop has gone almost completely from old breaks. The other is D shaped in profile with an expanded outer edge and a central pair of projecting lips forming a pin rest. The centre bar is recessed and narrowed, there are projecting knobs at both ends, outlined by grooves across the frame. Similar to Whitehead (2003) page 61, no 306 hence a date of c.1550-1650 is suggested.

A fragment from a cast copper-alloy post-medieval buckle, probably a shoe buckle: it bowes. The frame would have been rectangular with rounded corners; less than half of the buckle remains.

The frame is raised around the spindle hole. The buckle is moulded on its upper surface, with a slightly rebated border. In each internal corner is an arc that terminates in a circle within which a punched ring-and-dot motif. The circles prot…

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle of post-medieval date, now missing its pin. The buckle is sub-rectangular in form, effectively a rectangle with the corners cut off; one of the outer edges is not straight. The buckle is flat and plain and has corroded to a red-brown colour overlain by patches of light green corrosion product. Such a buckle can plausibly be dated to the 17th century, although a slightly later date cannot be ruled out (cf. Griffiths et al., 215; ref. 3001).

Cast copper alloy side plate from the hilt of a knife. The plate is sub-rectangular in shape. There is a break at one end, but the rest of the plate remains intact and in fairly good condition. The reverse has a raised ridge running along the outside edge, creating a central slot to hoild the tang of the knife, but is otherwise undecorated. The upper face has a central recessed panel with raised letters within it. These are difficult to decipher and this task is made more difficult because the first part of the inscription is missing due to the break. They appear to say [...]MAKE YOUr…
