Object type: RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Carmarthenshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Crudely cast copper alloy ring. The inside of the ring contains several wear facets. External diameter c.25mm, internal diameter c.18mm, weight 5.2 grams. Crudely cast copper alloy rings like this example served numerous functions and can date from at least the medieval period to the early twentieth century. The recent suggestion that they are medieval belt fittings (Bailey 2000, 54-55) while plausible is simply one of many plausible identifications.

The eyes are perforated and are likely to have held small blue glass beads. The mouth appears down-turned and there is the suggestion of facial hair above the mouth, suggesting Christ was depicted with a beard. The tear at the base of the mount is …
