A fragment of Post Medieval to Modern white metal grille dating to c. AD 1720-1900. It is quatrefoil in plan, with two bars separating the four semi circles of the quatrefoil. The bars meet in the centre, where one lifts slightly to cross the other. Each of these bars ends in a knop on the outer edge of the frame. A small fragment of metal is at one side of the quatrefoil, possibly part of a fitting. The fragment is extremely lightweight. This may be part of a piece of jewellery.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A stacked group of seven white metal thimbles of post medieval date (probably c.1550-1700). Each is thin-walled and highly decorated, with a rounded bottom edge with impressed vertical lines. Decorative motifs include lines, possible flowers, and a possible Irish harp. The stack is mis-shapen with the lower ones crushed so it is not possible to see inside, and the apex of the top-most thimble is also dented inwards. It is not possible to separate them to record individually. It seems likely they represent a tradesman's stock which has been lost.  Group - H…

County: North Lincolnshire

White metal lid. A hollow thin-walled cylindrical lid with a slightly thickened rim with eight flat facets, and with the stamped impression of a beast – perhaps a hound – rendered in heraldic style sitting left. The facets appear to be intended to facilitate the removal of the lid from its setting with a small spanner. The quasi-heraldic motif might suggest a connection with sporting pursuits, for which this may have served as a powder flask lid, perhaps from a set of matching paraphernalia. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1750 Diameter: 11.3mm, Height: 6.4mm, Thickness (…

Silver brooch fragment. The identification of the material has been disputed by the finder. Kevin Leahy therefore kindly re-examined the object under a microscope, and comments as follows: 'The fracture suggests that this piece is copper alloy'. The record has therefore been amended, with the silver surface appearance now considered as plating. Cast bow from a small bow brooch, possibly Mackreth type Almgren 16. A straight-sided bow with a central longitudinal ridge and with grooved borders; neatly cross-cut horizontally and diagonally at its lower end. The top is constricted and…

White metal gilt finger ring fragment. Cast fragment of the bezel of a fede or betrothal ring featuring the fingers of two clasped hands, one emerging from a cuff indicated by paired vertical lines. The motif was especially favoured c.1450-1550 but continued in later use. Gilding traces appear on the display side. The use of silver gilt was favoured in the late medieval to early post-medieval period, though the dull surface might equally indicate a lead-rich copper alloy. In view of its possible material and age the object is to be submitted to the Treasure process, ref. TBC.Suggested…

A post medieval base metal (possibly lead/tin alloy) cuff link with a inset faceted green glass stone dating to ~1650-1800AD.

A white metal unidentified object of unknown date, possibly metal working debris but undiagnostic. It is an irregular oval in plan, D shaped (plano-convex) in cross-section, but the flatter face is also undulating, with a rounded convex area at each end. There are no corners suggesting it may be a cooled droplet or spill, or even an ingot of sorts. The metal is silver coloured with some areas of black patination, but is 'as found', not having been cleaned post-recovery. There are no markings or evidence of working except for a small flattened facet at one end which could also be damag…
