The back of the button has the remains of the integral shank, now two stubs with a gap between which would have been joined by the loop. It measures 23.1 mm in diameter, 9.5 mm i…

A damaged, now incomplete, post-medieval lead-alloy button. The button has a slightly convex front with a moulded design of a sunken six petalled flower with raised lines between each petal that emerge from a central rosette. There is a line border around each sunken petal in low relief. The edge is shaped to the curved edges of the petals, though with alternating lines and double pellets that protrude. The back is flat, though raised at its circular centre which corresponds with the sunken petals. At the centre is a raised line from which two stubs emerge to have formed a simple loop…

A Post-Medieval copper alloy enamelled button dating to c. AD 1640-1700. The button is circular in plan, with a convex front and concave reverse. From the centre of the reverse an integral shank expands, terminating in a now incomplete drilled loop. Traces of iron corrosion are affixed to both the loop and reverse face of the button, suggetsing the original presence of an iron chain. The front of the button is decorated with a foliate design cast in low relief, with four petals radiating out from a central hemispherical boss. Each petal also contains a series of four raised pellets…

A copper-alloy composite three-piece button of post-medieval date (c. 17th century). The sheet button consists of a pair of hollow die stamped hemispheres soldered together. There is a small perforation, or blow hole, either side of the separately attached round, drawn wire loop/shank. A detached element is lodged within the object and rattles around when shook, but it is assumed that this is not a pea as with a bell. The head is plain, but corroded with a red-brown colour with traces of off-white and green corrosion product, and some tinning or possible solder around the shank. The h…

A post-medieval cast tombac (copper-zinc alloy) two-piece circular button with central pimple (c. 17th century AD). The front is plain and slightly domed apart from the pimple.
