Object type: TAG
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible post medieval lead hooked tag of 18th century date The hooked tag is incomplete and distorted, missing the hook (with a surviving length of 21.1mm and a weight of 3.0g). The tag had a rectangular attachment loop at one end, now distorted. At the centre is a circular boss (4.0mm diameter) with cast decoration comprising a raised concentric knurled ring, inside of which are five raised ring-and-dot motifs at the centre. At the base is the stub of the presumed hook, now missing. Iron wire appears to have been contained within the lead and has corroded on to the surface in areas.
