A gold fragment of an artefact of an undiagnostic date. The fragment comprises a loop made from a flat strip of gold from which two broken strands project creating an incomplete figure of eight in appearance. At the junction between the strip and the broken projections an incomplete cinquefoil has been soldered to the front. The surface of the strip is decoratively cast with a twisted rope motif. Dora Thornton and Judy Rudoe has had a look at this and they can't place what it is but believe it is undiagnostic. Dimensions: length: 9.26mm; width: 4.43mm; thickness: 1.23m…

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…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

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-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 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.
