Record ID: LVPL-94DA08
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a zoomorphic object of uncertain date and function. The object has a sub-triangular body which is sub-rectangular in cross-section. The body of the object divides at the top terminating with two rounded projections or ears. The ears are concave on the outer face of the object and convex at the rear. Between the ears on the 'head' of the object is a projecting snout which is lozenge shaped in cross-section. The snout is almost complete however any surface detail has been lost with the patina, probably due to abrasion from within the plough soil. The lower part of this face…

An incomplete copper alloy object of uncertain function. The object is in the form of a wedge with one forked end. The forked end appears to be incomplete. The object is undecorated and has a rough mid-green patina. Dimensions: 62mm in length, 23mm in width, 16mm thick, 105.6g. This object is possibly part of a post-medieval to modern soldering iron although it is not as pointed as other recorded examples.

A piece of copper-alloy morphologically similar to the shape of a flat axehead, possibly casting waste from a manufacturing process. The object is roughly pear shaped in silhouette, with a rough texture that appears to be partly from corrosion and partly from the natural grain of the metal.

A copper alloy zoomorphic object of uncertain function. The object has a circular perforated fitting the hoop of which is sub-rectangular in cross-section. From this extends a long rectangular sectioned 'neck' with a zoomorphic snake-like terminal. The animal head has an open mouth with tongue projecting and ridged brows. The details of the face are worn. From the opposite side of the hoop an incomplete sub-rectangular projection extends. This may have formed a symmetrical terminal with zoomorphic head when complete. The object has a mid-green patina and is in fair condition. Dimen…

A complete copper alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object consists of a long hook, measuring 85mm in length before it curves, tapering in width to a rounded point. The hook is circular in cross-section. At the top of the object the hook expands and flattens to form an integral loop. The loop has an internal diameter of 14mm. The object has a mid-green patina and is undecorated. It is in fair condition. Dimensions: 85mm in length, 20mm in width (at the loop), 8.60g. The exact function of the object is unknown however the form and lack of decoration suggests it…

Treasure Case: 2016 T1015 Description and discussion: A medieval silver-gilt plaque depicting the Agnus Dei. The plaque is rectangular with a plain border around all four edges. In the centre is the Agnus Dei, facing right and supporting a cross. Short incised lines have been used for texture on the lamb's coat and the background is cross-hatched. The plaque is fragmentary. There is a small loss to the area left of the lamb's head which measures 7.8mm. Where the silver has been lost there are two breaks, one runs vertically down the border and the other curves along the lamb's l…

An lead alloy object of uncertain function. The object is circular in plan and is D-shaped in cross-section. The flat face is rough and uneven with no visible pitting. Due to its undiagnostic nature it cannot be dated closely however the condition of the lead suggests a Post-Medieval date is likely. The object may have functioned as a palm guard however there are no diagnostic features. Palm guards were for use by a leather worker to protect the palm whilst stitching. Bailey (1995, 64-65) dates such objects to the 17th century onwards.

An incomplete copper alloy object, probably dating to the Early Medieval period. The object is rectangular in plan and cross-section. One long edge is incomplete due to ancient breaks and has a slight rectangular projection in the centre. Along the opposite long edge is a pierced sub-oval projection, which projects at a right angle to the body of the object. The front of the object is decorated with a rectangular recessed panel. The panel is infilled with transverse decoration of ridges and grooves and is gilded. To the rear of the object two circular possible rivet holes are visi…

Description: The object is a strip of silver with a pattern of what appear to be stamped lines on one side, cut at both ends and bent. There are no visible test marks, and no trace of solder or other fastening. Dimensions: 8mm wide, and 1mm thick. Weight 4.52g Discussion: The object has some similarities with so-called broad-band arm-rings of the late 9th and 10th centuries, produced in Viking contexts around the Irish Sea. Such pieces were commonly cut-up as 'hack-silver', valued by weight within a bullion economy. Finds of arm-rings of this type are recorded from Viking hoar…

An incomplete copper alloy object of uncertain function, probably dating from the medieval to the post-medieval period. The object is sub-circular in plan with a wide rearward projecting hook at one end. At the opposite straight edged end of the object are two rounded projections which curve inwards and may have joined. The majority of the surface decoration has been obscured with corrosion however where the corrosion hasn't taken hold gilding is visible on each face. At the junction between the hooked tab and the body of the object is a double moulded inverted V-shaped ridge. A…
