A hollow copper-alloy half of a sphere.   The sphere has several small circular perforations present across the face. It is not possible to identify a function or date for the object. It may have functioned as a bell of some kind or perhaps a decorative button, which would likely date the find to the post medieval period. No comparable examples could be located, and a search of the Historic Environment Record did not provide any clues as to the object’s origin.
