Copper alloy plate brooch of unusual form and uncertain date, but possibly Anglo Saxon. The brooch is complete except for the missing pin and a broken lug on the reverse (from the twin lug arrangement). The face is irregular and is shaped similar to two overlapping triangles. The catch plate is positioned at the apex of the top triangle. The top edge near the lugs has an S-shaped bend, which corresponds to a thinning of the metal. The face is decorated with raised border around the edge and a central cross. Either side of the vertical rib are thin diagonal mark, which slope upwards in…

The front carries incised decoration. Three concentric circles were positioned around a central aperture. Above the engraved circles are two facing arcs, which have a linear incised line at the apex. Gilding survives inside the engraved lines. All edges apart from an arc for the central opening are broken. The…

Leaded copper alloy cast saucer brooch from the Early Anglo Saxon period. The brooch is circular with an angled rim defining the saucer profile. The decoration is confined to the flat plate and consists of a central device of a geometric four-pointed floral design, the interior of each petal is divided along its length. Six raised concentric circles enclose the central design. The third, fourth and fifth circles (from the centre) are interrupted by two opposing scroll based designs, likely to be stylised zoomorphs. The simpler C-like design may represent a snake, while the more elabor…

There is a slight step from the hoop to the integral terminals extending as far as an incised border, giving the impr…
