A Medieval cast copper-alloy 'stirrup'-shaped finger-ring. (dating from about 1175- 1450 AD). The hoop is chunky and expands to a pointed flat topped bezel. At the top of the bezel there differential corrosion, perhaps suggesting a setting, now missing. The hoop is 'D'-shaped in cross-section. This ring is similar to examples from London (Egan and Pritchard 1991: 326, refs: 1608, 1609). It is suggested that this form was popular from the mid-12th to the mid-15th century. However, they were most popular during the earlier part of the period. The ring has a smooth grey patina whi…
