Object type: BELL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A sheet silver spherical bell dating from post 1710. The bell is made in three pieces; two semi-spherical halves and a separate attachment loop which is missing. There is a small rectangular slot in the centre of the upper half for the loop to fit into. There is a slit with a sound hole at each end in the lower half. The two halves are joined at a projecting median ridge. The lower half sheet is folded over the upper half above the ridge. The bell is somewhat flattened. In the opinion of Dora Thornton, the bell is less than 300 years old, so does not need to be declared under the 1996…

County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

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.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Post-Medieval silver stud with silver top and copper alloy stem. The top of the surface of the silver stud impressed with two circular rings with a seated fox at the centre. Given the fox perhaps part of dress or equipment used in fox hunting. Dating is difficult though this is definitely post-medieval and probably post-Treasure Due to the nature of the find it can not be securely dated to pre-1710 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

Silver thimble, beaded rim, circular indentations on the body, on one side a shaped scroll with cartouche engraved with owner's initials, EB supported by birds. Above this, a maker's mark, P(?) S. 1.6 cm long. Early 18th Century, perhaps just pre 1708. Probably made for a child, given its tiny size.

As such, due to its age and precious metal content, this object qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Circular dress hook, round face with pinked and raised border, design of two initials, probably T A, in Lombardic script flanking a heart beneath a flower-head. Recurving hook on the back has been broken perhaps in an attempt to straighten it but the form of the hook suggests that it was originally bent in an s-shape, which, with the round shape of the front would suggest that this was a cap-hook. The design on the front suggests a love theme perhaps with the initials of a betrothed or married couple. Early -post-medieval (given the script), perhaps late 15th or early 16th Centu…

Squashed silver thimble, decorated over most of the body with waffle-shaped indentations and a broad border left plain with no maker's mark or owner's mark visible.

One disc from a pair of octagonal silver cufflinks. Only one disc loop survives. The disc is octagonal and is decorated with an octangonal border of concave incised lines and a central flower (rose?). The reverse of the disc is slightly hollow and has an integral central loop. There are no visible hallmarks, but this design of cufflink was popular at the end of the 17th century into the early 18th century. Since the object cannot be securely dated to pre 1700, it does not constitute Treasure under the 1996 Act, though it has been reported to the British Museum Department of Portable A…
