Record ID: SF8385
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified gold object. It consists of an apparently solid truncated cone with concave sides (a bell shape), and a narrow tube set transversely on the top. The tube appears to be hollow (although now filled with soil) and is 10.5 mm long; it is basically 2 mm in diameter, but has a collar of beaded wire around either end and a line of similar beaded wire along the top. The wire is 0.8 mm wide; the beads are regular and rounded, and the bead-count per 2.5 mm is 7. The beads around the ends of the tube are very rubbed and worn, particularly towards the top, so that here they are alm…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Incomplete gold finger-ring, set with a colourless stone. The hoop is narrow and broken into two parts, with about a quarter missing. It is D-shaped in cross-section, flaring from a minimum of 1.2 mm wide and 1.4 mm thick to a maximum of 1.8 mm wide and 2 mm thick at the junction with the bezel. Although this would seem to leave little room for decoration on the shoulders, there is in fact a great deal of complicated scrolly engraving extending around half the hoop and ending with a short longitudinal groove. The bezel is 8.5 mm square, and tapers to a point underneath with a finely…

Large gold finger-ring. The external diameter is 23.5 mm and the internal diameter is 19 mm. The hoop is 7 mm wide, and is D-shaped or very slightly biconvex in cross-section. It is 2.5 mm thick and weighs 13.69g. The exterior is completely undecorated; the interior has an engraved 'posy' between two slightly different ornamental scrolly motifs. The posy reads (in Italian, and in italic lettering) Questo ci, fa una. This can be translated as 'This to (or for) us, makes one'. A slightly freer translation might be 'This ring makes us one'. Judy Rudoe has commented that the style of the …

Object type: PENANNULAR RING
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gold foil plated ring with silvery gold wire inlaid into the gold foil. The ring has a diameter of 15.5 mm and it is sub-square or sub-circular in cross-section, measuring 5 mm deep and 5 mm wide; the faces are most flattened near to the terminals. The ends of the ring butt right up against each other and are joined by corrosion from the core. A copper-alloy core is suggested by green corrosion products in two places, both on the interior surface of the ring; behind the terminals, and where the gold sheath has cracked on the opposite side from the terminals. Further damage to the gold…

Gold finger-ring of 'stirrup-shaped' type, now in two pieces and with an empty setting. The hoop is a little uneven but in most places 2.5 mm wide and a very thin D-shape in cross-section. The hoop is now crushed out of shape and a small piece, opposite the bezel, has become detached. The bezel is tall and triangular in the classic 'stirrup' shape, and has a very tiny circular setting for a gem a little less than 2 mm in diameter. The base of the setting is keyed for adhesive, of which no traces survive. Medieval, probably 13th century.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gold quarter stater, of Hobbs's 'Central Eastern Gold Attributed to Addedomaros' type (Hobbs 1996, 2417-21). The only variation from the standard type is that there is a pellet-in-ring below the horse's tail, rather than the usual ring. Van Arsdell (1989, nos. 1623-1) catalogues the type as Trinovantian, Addedomaros second coinage, 37-33 BC, but his dates are notoriously over-precise and a range of mid to late first century BC is to be preferred. The coin is of reddish gold; the slightly convex obverse is a little worn but the concave reverse is very clear.

Gold casing for a pyramidal scabbard mount in the form of a truncated pyramid, decorated with filigree zoomorphs on each face and a square-cut plate garnet at the apex. The casing is made from four sheets of gold, soldered edge to edge, with the joins on the display surface disguised by worn beaded filigree. Each of the four faces is ornamented with a single knotted snake-like zoomorph within a fine beaded filigree border. The zoomorphs are arranged in pairs and their bodies are made of triple-strand beaded filigree. The pairs are different in both form and execution, as if mad…

Unidentified jewellery element made of pale gold. It appears complete, and might perhaps have been a decorative cap. It is sub-triangular or heart-shaped, and now rather crushed. Originally at least 6.5 mm thick, its sides have two facets of uneven depth, both decorated with delicate engraved scrolled motifs. On the wider facet of the angle these motifs are in zigzag fields, and on the other facet they are confined within a narrow band which narrows further towards the apex of the heart or triangle. The face next to the wider facet is better preserved and has a raised heart-shaped…

Gold and garnet fragment, possibly half of a rather long biconical bead. A hollow cone in shape, it has a circumferential band of cloisonne garnets around both the wider and the narrower end, and four longitudinal bands of cloisonne garnets running between. The band around the wider end had perhaps eight rectangular garnets originally, set in cloisons (cells); three survive now and two of the cloisons are badly crushed. A strip of gold projecting from the edge of this crushed area may be part of the attachment to the other half of the bead, or part of a suspension loop if the object …

Small, roughly hemispherical, gold droplet with rounded upper surface and flattish lumpy reverse. The surface is pitted all over. The diameter varies from c. 6 to c. 7 mm and the thickness is c. 4 mm at most. This droplet is undatable; although there is no particular reason to believe that it is over 300 years old, an ancient origin is possible and so it has been recorded.

Medieval gold finger-ring set with a garnet. The hoop is of very slender proportions - 0.7 x 0.6 mm - but, remarkably, intact and still nearly circular (c. 18-19 mm diameter). The hoop runs right up, without any shoulders, to a conical setting flaring out to accommodate a slightly irregular oval garnet (5.7 x 5.3 mm measured across the claws). This is cut flat across with very narrowly bevelled edges, and is held in place by four simple triangular claws. 12th to 14th century.

One end of a gold penannular 'tress-ring'. 10 mm wide and 0.6 mm thick, the surviving length is 19 mm long and weight is 1.09g. The exterior face has a raised rounded border on its three original sides, surrounding nine longitudinal ribs separated by ten rounded concave grooves to give an evenly corrugated effect. Some of the grooves have longitudinal scratches which may be from the mould or from later finishing. The interior face is flat apart from a slight ridge at the original short edge, which may be a result of gentle hammering or, more probably, a reflection of the original moul…
