Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Silver seal-die, oval matrix engraved with bust of a woman with hat, necklace and hair worn in bunches; exposed shoulders. Fluted handle with integral suspension loop, worn. The seal-die is hard to date; the handle suggests a late 17th Century date but this is tentative and it may be of later manufacture. Since the dating is uncertain it is not possible to definitely classify this as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Small silver stud, impossible to date with any precision and therefore recommended that it should be excluded from the Treasure process. Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it can not be securely dated to pre-1706 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment of a devotional plaque A fragment of a double-sided plaque, cast on one side with a possible Madonna and child, and on the other a scene with three saints. The item is possibly a Catholic devotional token, not necessarily English in origin, judging by the Madonna figure's veil and cloak. The plaque has three surviving projecting knops. The object is probably of silver, but as the style and facture suggest a post-1706 date, possibly 19th century or later, the object is not thought to qualify as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Post-medieval silver spoon Note on Oxford Archaeology North report: Having seen images and read the report on this object, my view is that this is a Christening spoon, not necessarily of English make. The ones in the literature readily available to me are inscribed with names and dated late 17th or early 18thC: see spoon dated 1718 and another dated 1699 in Klaus Marquardt, Eight Centuries of European Knives, Forks and Spoons, Stuttgart 2997, figs. 301 and 305. This does not mean that earlier ones do not exist, perhaps in the V&A collection, unknown to me. These late dated spo…

Silver thimble, circular indentations over the body and top, two birds framing a cartouche designed for owner's initials. Worn and squashed. The best comparison is a thimble dating to the early 18th C from the collection of Edwin Holmes (Sotheby's South Kensington, London 31 May 1995, lot 61). It is probable that this thimble post-dates 1706 and it and therefore it falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

Silver thimble, missing its domed top, now flattened in shape and open along its original soldered join. Plain border demarcated by engraved lines, the body covered with waffle-shaped indentations applied on a lathe, leaving blank a small area in which are roughly incised the owner's initials, MA. A maker's mark, apparently IB above a pellet, is also stamped into the sheet, now very worn. Length: 1.2 cm. Form, facture and engraving suggest a late 17th C or possibly early 18th C date, but cannot be proven to be pre- 1706 and may not therefore fall within the scope of the Treasure A…

18th century silver seal matrix The shape of the seal die handle suggests an 18th Century date. The find dates to later than 1706 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. The arms appear to be a variant of the Hamilton family with the motto THROUGH with crest of an oak tree pierced by a frame saw, and the arms are three cinquefoils.

18th-20th century curved decorative fragment possibly from a brooch.A curved, decorative fragment, confirmed as not Roman by a Romano-British specialist; its exact function unclear, but possibly part of a brooch. Though Renaissance in ornament-style, it appears to be a modern cast, and thus dateable post-1706. As such, this object does not qualify as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

post-medieval silver fragment from a drinking vessel Heavy, cast silver element with central section of a hinge at one end, curved middle section and crude curling scrolls at the other end forming a finial. Probably the central part of the thumbpiece on the lid of a drinking vessel. Similar elements are found on imported pottery drinking vessels, with silver mounts made in London: see for example an unmarked stoneware drinking pot in the V&A, of circa 1550-60, in which the cast thumbpiece is of much finer quality but has scrolls like this fragment, which however end in masks.

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. Joseph Strutt describes hawking bells in his Sports and Pastimes of the People of England of 1801, p. 26. He explains that …
