Record ID: WMID-115B76
Object type: RELIQUARY CROSS
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Description: An incomplete hollow gold cross pendant, perhaps used as a miniature reliquary, of medieval date (c. 15th century AD). The pendant is in the shape of a Maltese cross, with a concave curve at the end of each of the four flaring arms. The front of the pendant bears a black-letter inscription reading 'de cuer' (probably meaning 'from the heart', an amatory rather than a religious inscription). Each arm is filled with an engraved floral spray, consisting of a stem with foliage ending in a pair of engraved five-petalled flowers. The top and bottom arms have a longer stem an…

A medieval reliquary pendant of lozenge shape with a suspension loop. The reliquary pendant is gold and dates from the first half of the sixteenth century. The front panel of the reliquary is engraved with an image of a female saint, either the Virgin Mary or St Helena, supporting the cross. The cross is speckled in a manner suggesting that it is splattered with blood. To the left and right of the figure are foliate tendrils. The saint stands on a chequerboard design, probably indicating a tiled floor or pavement. The back panel slides out to reveal a cavity, undoubtedly designe…

A set of three interlinked gold 'puzzle rings'. Each of the three rings passes through the other two. Two of the rings are of equal form and size, each having been made from a single strand of wire, the ends butted together, a kink deliberately created at one point in the circumference. In contrast, the other ring has been formed from a twisted strand and has been bent into an uneven figure of '8' shape. Maximum width of ring: 23.2mm. Total weight: 7.38g.

Small gold appliqué decorated with curvilinear filigree wire. The plaque comprises a thin piece of sheet gold forming an extended rectangle in two decorative 'halves', with each of the shortest sides cut to form a 'V' shape. There is a small circular perforation at each corner, as well as an additional perforation below one of the corner perforations; other holes appear to be wear and tear.

The object consists of one end of a rectangular strip of filigree-decorated gold sheet. It has a border formed by a false herringbone plait of two plain, twisted wires in-between two finely milled wires. The border encloses two lengthwise rows of back-to-back S-scrolls (only two scrolls on each side now surviving) separated by a single median wire, all finely milled. Fixed to a short gold shank soldered to the back of the sheet is a small, lozenge-shaped foil. The fragment is probably part of a plaque inserted into the front of a rectangular belt- or buckle-plate with a raised rim, suc…

This is an incomplete object made of gold sheet, probably dating to the Roman period.

The remains of the plaque consists of two segments, which have fractured off from each other, but which fit together; the upper portion includes a curved suspension hook and the upper portion of the plaque, which is sub-triangular in shape. The upper portion is torn/fractured across its lower horizontal edge; the second portion of the plaque continues the main area of the plaque …

A Post Medieval gold pin head (16th century). Curator's report: Small, heavy gold pin head with hole for attachment to a gold wire. The hemispherical head squashed flat, decorated with applied filigree circlets and knops, and with flower heads made up of small turquoises (identified by Raman spectroscopy) held in claw settings and surrounded by petals of openwork gold decoration made of fine twisted wire. This fascinating pin head suggests the gold prototypes for the silver-gilt types of the 16th Century which are commonly reported through the Treasure Act. Its e…

Gold globular ('ball-headed') pin-head, which has been squashed flat. The shaft of the pin is missing, and there is some damage at its shearing point. The head is decorated with filigree: a median band of larger pellets would have divided the field in two; each half was then decorated with four spirals of fine filigree, coiled round a central pellet (not all of them surviving). The design at the top of the head was further embellished by four lobes (containing two pellets each) converging in a cruciform pattern. This is now visible on one side of the flattened pin-head. Probably of 8t…

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 …

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…

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…

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…
