Two silver hollow hemispherical elements, each with a central hole. Each side is incised with a leaf or floral design which continues from one side to the other, and the pieces fit together to show how they were originally joined to form a hemisphere pierced at either side. The function of this object is not clear. Possibly the remains of a button, in which the loop, now missing, had a shank which joined both elements with a knop at the end. Otherwise perhaps a decorative dress fitting sewn onto a garment? The etched design suggests a roughly 16th-17th Century date. As such, due…

post-medieval silver fragment Round piece of silver sheet hammered into hemispherical shape, central hole. Possibly upper part of a bell for hawking or dress. Bells were worn as accessories to dress in the 15th C but surviving examples are usually made of base metal, see Egan and Pritchard, Dress Accessories, pp. 336-7. This artefact could also be part of a hawking bell, attached one to each leg of a hawk with leather rings so as to jangle when the hawk moved.

Post medieval silver(?) thimble made from sheet with turned over edge and slight dome. There are no decorative or other features to help date this object and the shape suggests a late date, post 1707, and that this may be a liner for a now missing thimble, possibly 19th Century. The find dates to later than 1707 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. Dr Dora Thornton, Curator of Renaissance Collections The British Museum

Potential Treasure find: Silver Thimble (2005 T553) The thimble is very hard to analyse or date given that it is squashed out of shape, form being the most useful indicator of date. It might consequently be medieval or alternatively (and in my view more likely) 18th Century. I therefore suggest that it should be regarded as undiagnostic and removed from the Treasure process.
