Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy rectangular object, 24.4mm by 21.8mm and 4.4mm thick with deeply incised decoration in the form of a stylised face, with ovate eyes, triangular nose and deeply incised lines representing a haristyle. The decoration is incised suggesting the object has a function as a mould or die. This is likely to be an early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) die stamp for making pre├čblech foils for small decorative items. These generally fall into two groups; early examples used for bracteates and button or saucer brooches (late 5th-early 6th century) and later stamps for pre├čblech foils decorat…

Copper alloy and bone button. Composite discoid button with a probably die-stamped copper alloy front with a central dished hollow and a right handed spiral arrangement of small leaf-shaped figures against a finely lined ground; a border of continuous flattened triangles limits the decorated field. Gilding traces appear extensively. A slightly plano-convex section bone disc with a groove around its outer edge serves as a back plate clenched by the rim of the front, with a drawn wire loop passing into it. The mass suggests a hollow construction. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1850-1900.…

~~An incomplete post-medieval lead-alloy button that is missing its integral shank on the reverse. On the face of the button are five oval flower petals, with a pellet in between, all arranged around a central domed boss. The button shares similarities with those in Read (2005) pp.75-6 and 84-6, for which he suggests a late 16th century - 18th century date.
