Record ID: SOM-68B1D1
Object type: EAR RING
Broad period: MODERN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Silver lozenge-shaped bead, hollow, with integral suspension loop and ring; hole at other end. Decorated with applied filigree circles and loops. Though the decoration is reminiscent of that found on 16th Century dress pins reported through the Treasure Act, this object seems to me to be machine-made and consequently much later in date. The form suggests a 19th Century date and my guess is that this is part of an ear-ring of relatively recent manufacture. It does not therefore come under the 1996 Treasure Act (Dr Dora Thornton, Curator of Renaissance Collections, The British Museum).

Record ID: SOMDOR-84D081
Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A post-medieval silver seal matrix with fluted handle, three transverse bands and suspension loop. The seal is engraved with a shield with a single diagonal band with three stars and crest with mantling above. The form of the seal-die and the style of the mantling suggests an 18th century date, not necessarily pre-1707. The seal-die cannot be securely dated to pre-1707 and as such it falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996 (Dr Dora Thornton, Curator of Renaissance Collections, The British Museum).
