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…

"Report on post-medieval silver artefact from Tickhill, South Yorkshire, 2009 T543    Round silver artefact with central red cabochon stone or paste, held in petalled setting within an openwork filigree border.

Post-medieval silver button or cufflink element etched on the front with a flowerhead. Shank on the reverse. Diameter 13.8 mm, weight o.72g. Probably a cufflink rather than a button given its size, weight and design, which suggests an early 18th Century date and possibly post 1709. Therefore, in all probability, this item is not Treasure, as defined by the Treasure Act 1996.

A Post Medieval - possibly Modern gold button (late 16th - early 19th century). Small gold button in the shape of a flowerhead, perhaps a daisy, with solid centre and petals forming shallow compartments filled with a composition, perhaps glass inlay, some of which is now missing. Single loop attachment in gold at the centre of the back. Approximately 0.7 cm diameter. This naturalistic flowerhead button is difficult to place. The fine tooling on front suggests age and the working at the back, together with uneven outline, suggests that it has been hand cut not stamped. The …
