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

A silver disc with turned down edge and shank soldered on the reverse, stamped on the front with a flaming heart bisected by two arrows with drops of blood dripping from the heart. Edge broken away in one area. The fragility of the shank may indicate that this is part of a pair of cufflinks rather than a button; although the size suggests a button rather than a cufflink. Both types are regularly reported through the Treasure Act. The design is close to that the two hearts conjoined, often associated with the marriage of Charles II and Catherine of Braganza in 1662.

2007 T450 The British Museum Curator's report describes the object as: "Small decorative stud, probably part of a drop-style earring imitating Roman examples. A circular convex rosette has a central protruding knop and is surrounded by a flat circular strip. A border surrounds this and has been marked with indents to give the appearance of beaded wire. The piece is surmounted by three small flattened knops, each with a similar border as the main section. This is typical of 19th-century archaeological jewellery and is therefore not Treasure. N.

Engraved foliate ornament. Halfway up this shaft a second shaft curves outwards, broken.
