A slightly bent gold pin. The shaft is a flattish oval in section and tapers from 3.14mm to 1.49mm at the point. The broad end is finished with a simple knop. Below this is a round hole 1.5mm in diameter and an oblong hole 8.50mm long by 1.10mm. 5.12mm further down is a slightly smudged makers mark, stamped onto the metal, in the form of two letters possibly G over W. The pin is otherwise undecorated. This type of headdress pin, (sometimes referred to as a bodkin because of the ribbon threading potential of the oblong hole) dates to the seventeenth century. A similar example is in …

Description: Ball-headed pin head made from gold with filigree wire and pellet decoration. The pin head is hollow and globular, with a circular hole at each end surrounded by an annulet of beaded wire; the upper and lower half are separated by a border of a line of beaded wire either side of what appears now to be a plain wire, but on closer inspection is actually a beaded wire worn down so that the beads have almost disappeared. This triple-strand border probably conceals a soldered join. Both halves are decorated alike, with two-ply twisted wire forming three pairs of opposed S- …

Gold pin of unknown date; the pin is slightly bent. The shank is circular in cross-section at the tip, the shank of the pin has a more flattened cross-section. The diameter of the shank gradually declines, towards the point. The head of the pin is roughly square, formed by a flattening of the shank, with a concave impression on one face. This object has been examined, at the British Museum, by the Prehistoric, Roman, Iron Age, Medieval and Post-Medieval curators. It is the consensus that this object cannot be securely dated to a specific period. Due to the undiagnostic nature of th…

A probably hollow spherical headed pin dating from the Post Medieval period (probably 16th or 17th century) and made of gold. The head is 5.64mm in diameter. The pin head is decorated to imitate filigree and applied knop decoration has probably actually been incised or moulded. The design is a mixture of leaves, flowers, dots and rings. The pin shank is wire, circular in section and tapers to the point. It is curved along its length and there are regular notches in the wire. The pin is similar to filigree and imitation filigree ball headed pins of the 16th century such as SWYOR-538…

Treasure case 2009 T518: Declared not Treasure Description: Gold spherical finial, centrally pierced for attachment to a pin, decorated with large gold wire circlets each containing a glass/paste cabochon, some of these now missing. Probably from a hat pin or dress pin. Facture indicates a 19th or even early 20th Century date. Discussion: The find dates to later than 1708 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. Dora Thornton British Museum Dimensions 21.06mm including 'gems', 18.3mm excluding, hole for pin 2.5mm, 6.26 grams.

Description: Roughly circular or slightly oval gold object, apparently made from a piece of flat sheet. An oval area in the centre has been raised, and this pierced in the centre by a small circular hole c. 1mm in diameter. The face with the raised centre has fine concentric lines scratched or engraved around the flange, and an edge which appears slightly thickened in places. The raised centre has broad lines scored across it, perhaps as a result of damage while in the soil. The other face does not appear to have any markings other than those caused by general wear and tear. The circu…

Description: The head of a two-part copper alloy pin capped in gold, dating to the 16th century. The head is spherical and hollow, decorated on the outer surface. There is a band running around the circumference of the head, which suggests that it is formed of two hemispheres, soldered together. On either side of the band is a central dome with five domes surrounding. At the peak of each dome is a recess with a small blue stone inlay, except for one dome at the base which has a larger perforation from the pin shank to enter and another in the opposing dome where it is likely the pin wo…

Complete gold suspension loop, possibly from a bracteate of Early Early-Medieval date (AD 400 - AD 600). Treasure case no. BM2005 T408. Width 5 mm, maximum diameter 5 mm. Weight 0.66 g. The pendant is made from a thin rectangular strip of sheet gold which has four lightly moulded longitudinal ribs. The square-cut ends overlap from slight crushing. The loop may be from a bracteate rather than any other sort of pendant as the double ribs either side of a broad central furrow are a feature of several bracteates, but do not seem to occur on other Anglo-Saxon pendants of later date. Metal …

Anglo-Saxon pectoral cross pendant made from gold cloisonné work inlaid with garnets. 58 of the 95 original garnets now remain, and through X-ray diffraction it has been shown that the garnets are sited on a bed of calcium carbonate; this is a common technique in Anglo-Saxon jewellery manufacture. It is likely to date from the first half of the 7th century (see below) and is thus a very early example of a pectoral cross. Angela Care-Evans contributed the following report: Description: The cross is equal-armed, each arm with rounded corners and with cloisonné cell-work of gold b…

Triangular gold pendant with a facetted garnet inlay, the setting with a beaded border within simple margins. At the top, the scars and soldering points of a lost loop. The singleton Bidford on Avon pendant belongs to a growing family of necklace components, all made in similar style, that came into fashion in the 7th century. It can be compared, for example, to cabochon garnet pendants on the necklace from Desborough, Northamptonshire (L Webster and J Backhouse, The Making of England. Anglo-Saxon Art and Culture, AD 600-900 (London, 1991), p. 28, cat. no.13). This necklace date…

A complete gold necklace pendant in good condition. This pendant is lozenge shaped and measures 22mm in length and 16mm in width in size, it consists of a flat panel of gold with another strip of gold around its edge. The top corner of the pendant has a circular suspension loop, on the same plane as the pendant itself. Through this loop there is another larger gold circular suspension loop. Both faces are decorated with moulding. One face shows two figures, the right hand figure appears to be a kneeling angel with wings, the left hand figure is likely to be the Virgin Mary. There…

TREASURE CASE 2005 T421 A rare gold pendant, dating to the Mid-late Bronze Age. Biconical pendant made using narrow, c-sectioned gold strip wound spirally. The piece tapers to each end, having its maximum diameter across the mid-section. One end is broken off (missing) and there is slight compression at this end. An eyelet for suspension is placed centrally at the thickest part and this appears to be of the same c-sectioned strip. The hollow pendant was plugged with dirt at the time of inspection. Maximum surviving length 24mm; thickness at mid-section 6mm; weight 1.75 grams. Composit…

Circular sheet of gold with a projection to one side decorated with four longitudinal grooves. Opposite the projection the sheet appears to have punchmarks or crimping around part of the circumference. There are quite a few accidental indentations which have all been made from the undecorated face, leaving bumps on the decorated face. I suspect that this object may be the back plate from a cabochon pendant, perhaps at an early stage of manufacture or perhaps never made well and later damaged. If I am right, the 'crimping' around the circumference would be to hold a beaded wire bord…

Gold disc pendant decorated with plain and beaded wire. The pendant is crumpled, with a bad tear to right of the loop and an empty central setting. A loose garnet cabochon was found associated with it. The face is edged with a single strand of beaded filigree wire and is divided into two registers which are separated by a second strand of wire, also beaded. Each register is divided into four by a broad cruciform motif springing from the central setting, with simple arcaded terminals, again formed from beaded filigree wire. The four fields of the outer register are filled by pairs of t…

Gold necklace pendant containing Roman mosaic glass inlay. The pendant's gold frame is carefully shaped to fit around the margins of a setting containing an irregular fragment of Roman mosaic glass. A single collar of beaded wire frames the setting allowing the edges of the gold sheet back-plate to be seen. The pendant has a suspension loop made from swaged sheet. This pendant, along with another similar example (KENT-965884) and a gold spacer bead (KENT-7009B3) would have been strung on a high status necklace of mid 7th century AD date. Similar pendants were found in grave 172 i…
