Copper alloy brooch. Cast trumpet brooch, Mackreth type TR 1.x3 (especially pl. 83 no. 5247). A plain trumpet head has the stub of an integrally cast loop or tab on its top, and a loop behind to retain fastening gear [lost]. The bow is then slightly constricted before an equally slight expansion over a possibly eroded moulding, and a more definite mid bow moulding which, like the others, does not pass all around the bow. There is the suspicion of a horizontal groove between this and another vaguely defined moulding after which the lower bow tapers once again. The foot is lost, though …

Silver and opal stud. A thin beaten concavo-convex silver setting with the stubs of thin silver wire of diameter 0.6mm projecting from either end. The edge of the setting is finely cut to denticulated form with a series of tiny [length c.0.5mm] triangular flaps clasping the stone. The stone is a rounded teardrop-shaped opal with a lightly facetted surface. The wires appear to be set diagonally relative to the setting, so this was perhaps detached from a more complex clustered arrangement, perhaps in a brooch or pendant. Despite a reputation for being an unlucky stone, in part promoted …
