Unusual form of hooked tag. The plate is made from lead alloy, with a tall flat-topped cylindrical central boss around which is a raised circle. Outside the circle the edge is fragmentary, but looks lumpy and may originally have been a ring of pellets. On the reverse is the scar from a missing loop, which ran straight across the upper part of the plate. At the base of the plate is a separate copper-alloy hook, made from circular-section wire and set into a blob of lead alloy. This hooked tag is large, and quite complex in manufacture, yet made from a very cheap alloy. The metal m…

Copper-alloy hooked tag. The plate is made up of a pair of relief scrolls with their inner ends joined in a long point and their outer ends terminating in large flat pellets which fill the centre. Above these are a pair of short oblique projections and a rectangular loop. Below is a transverse rectangle decorated with two longitudinal grooves, and then two more oblique projections. The oblique projections together give the effect of a saltire. There are three pellets at the top of the long hook, which tapers and is then broken. An unusual design. Surviving length 30 mm, width 15 mm.

Hooked tag made from gilded silver, consisting of a triangular plate and a separate hook and loop. Each side of the plate measures 19 mm, and the corners are rounded. The edges are cut into scallops of varying sizes. On the front are three large hemispherical bosses set within twisted wire collars, and three large pellets, each set within a larger scallop and also with a twisted wire collar. There is no central pellet. Each element is probably soldered in place as there are no rivets visible on the reverse. The separate hook and loop also appear to have been soldered in place on the r…

Gilded copper-alloy hooked tag. The plate is long and triangular, and at the wider top is cut into three lobes. The two wider outer lobes are pierced for sewing; there are grooves between these and the narrower inner lobe which curve around the outer lobes before running down just inside the tapering straight edges to meet close to the bottom. The area thus enclosed is divided into two by a transverse groove. Above is an engraved square panel, with a line running inwards from the centre of each side nearly to the centre to form a quatrefoil. Below is a grooved triangle. At the ver…

Small and mis-cast openwork copper-alloy hooked tag. The basic type has the plate formed from a C-shaped scroll with solid circular ends. There is a rectangular loop at the top which springs from the ends of the scroll, and at the bottom there is firstly a horizontal bar on which the scroll rests and then a hook with two small lateral projections at the top. The hook is triangular in cross-section, and is sharp and complete. On this example, however, mis-casting has produced a partial blocking not only of the scroll but also of the rectangular loop. The space left within the loop i…

Large copper-alloy hooked tag. The plate is circular, 19 mm in diameter, and has openwork and relief decoration. Around the edge is a pellet border, with a double ridge within this. The inner of the two ridges is interrupted by six circular holes; the uppermost hole, however, is blocked by an imperfect casting. Occupying the centre is a six-petalled relief rose, with a raised central boss and concave petals each decorated with two radiating grooves. From the bottom of the plate emerges the hook. This has three transverse ridges across the top, and from the upper one a relief plan…

Possible hooked tag, or model to have been used in the manufacture of a hooked tag; but this identification is very uncertain and other interpretations of this object are also possible. It is a thin, flat, sub-triangular piece of lead alloy, which flares from a broken apex to two further corners, and then continues straight for a little distance until this edge also is broken. It is possible that the original shape was lozengiform. The front is decorated with three lines of pellets which run parallel to the two complete edges; as these turn the corner at the apex there is some confu…

Triangular hooked tag made from copper alloy. 16.5 mm wide at the top and 22.5 mm long, the sharp apex is turned under to form a small hook. There are two circular sewing holes set well in from the top corners. The tag is decorated with a vertical line of rectangular punchmarks, which runs right from the top between the holes down to the apex. This is crossed by a similar line across the top above the holes. Each side has two widely spaced similar lines which run up to the central vertical line. The punchmarks are all so neatly placed that it seems likely that they were made by ro…

Hooked tag made from a very grey copper alloy. The plate is flat and circular, 14 mm in diameter, and is decorated with a low-relief double six-petalled rosette. Each of the petals in the outer ring has two oval depressions. Above the plate is a rectangular loop. On the reverse is a raised rectangular area which may be the start of a broken-off hook. It is covered with iron corrosion, so alternatively the raised area may just possibly be the remains of solder used to attach a separate iron hook. Total surviving length, 20 mm.

Hooked tag made from copper alloy. The plate is rectangular, and has tiny stubs at the top from a missing attachment loop. There is a border of large pellets; down either long side are four pellets, there are none at the top because of the attachment loop, and there is a single pellet in the centre of the bottom of the plate above the hook. Within the border of pellets is a relief rectangle with a single pellet in the centre. The hook has some moulded transverse decoration at the top (perhaps a broad groove above a ridge). The hook curves down and behind, and is complete but now s…

Hooked tag made from copper alloy. The plate is pentagonal, with a rectangular slot at the top and the rest decorated with a pattern of diagonal rows of pellets with recesses in between. Two (at least) of the recesses have broken through to the other side to form holes, and the design may originally have been intended to be openwork. At the bottom is a large sharp hook with trapezoidal cross-section. The colour is a pale grey, looking like lead, but this is simply the lowest coat of hard chalky soil encrustations; when scraped away there is a dark green patina underneath.

Small silver hooked tag with circular plate and missing hook. The plate is 12 mm in diameter, undecorated, and has two sewing holes. A small stub of the hook survives. Such a small simple hooked tag may date from any time from the seventh to the eleventh centuries. (Subsequent note: this is almost certainly the same item as that published without illustration in the Treasure Act Annual Report 2001, no. 58, p. 41 (Treasure number M&ME 413). It was found upon XRF analysis to be a copper, lead and tin alloy and therefore not to be Treasure).

Copper-alloy hooked tag with sub-circular plate, two broken loops and a large hook. The plate is decorated with two engraved circles with fine radiating grooves both between the circles and within the inner circle. The engraving is not done particularly neatly. At the top of the plate are two projecting pierced lugs, both now broken; the breaks seem quite fresh but the metal is extremely thin here and it is hard to be certain. At the bottom is a much thicker hook, which tapers downwards before bending under to form the hook. Anglo-Saxon, probably middle or late.

Gilded silver hooked tag. The plate is trefoil, with each foil a domed boss. In the centre is a separate sheet flower with six petals, apparently ungilded, which is held on by a gilded silver rivet with a prominent smooth round head. The rivet's shank passes through the plate and is then split and folded out flat on the reverse to hold the elements together. The decoration of the trefoil's bosses varies, but all three have the basic decoration of two circles of twisted wire with a pellet in the centre of each. The lower foil has a pellet between and below the circles; a length of tw…

Small flimsy hooked tag made of copper alloy. The plate is circular and has two slightly asymmetrically set circular attachment holes near to the top edge. The plate is 10 mm wide and the only decoration is a white-metal coating on the front surface. At the bottom is a long hook; as this turns backwards only at right angles, it is probably either bent or incomplete. Total length 18 mm.

Hooked tag made from a piece of thin copper-alloy sheet. It has a straight-cut top with a sewing hole in each corner, meaning that it must date to the Anglo-Saxon period. The other sides are curved down to a projecting tapering turned-under hook, which is relatively long (7 mm from bend to tip) for hooked tags of this period. The plate is corroded, but decoration of at least seven irregularly set ring-and-dot motifs can be seen; one is so close to a sewing hole that the dot has broken away into the hole. The dimensions (width 17 mm, plate length 16 mm, overall length 22 mm) are com…

Incomplete object which is probably part of a hooked tag. The plate is circular (13 mm diameter), with a tiny perforation in the centre. It appears undecorated, and may be a backplate for an applied ornamented disc, but is very corroded and may originally have had some decoration. The hook has broken off (old break); opposite this break is a square loop measuring 5 mm square internally. A square loop is unusual and may indicate a relatively early date. Total length 19 mm.

Copper-alloy hooked tag of semi-cylindrical type, now incomplete. The tag is hollow and tapers downwards slightly towards the hook. It has a backplate which looks as if it originally had a rectangular cut-out at the top and a squarish cut-out lower down, leaving a reserved bar around which the tag could be sewn to the garment or to a ribbon. The bar has now broken away. There are extensive traces of gilding on the backplate. The curved front plate has a broad groove running down each long edge, and in between has a zone of diagonal criss-cross grooves with a double grooved border …
