Silver grosso of Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia), Rome, 1492-1503, adapted by the cutting out of a disc from the centre of the coin. The reason for this is uncertain; annular brooches are known which have been similarly treated but they are generally over two centuries earlier in date and have a hole drilled in the perimeter to accommodate a pin. The fashion for making annular brooches out of coins seems to have died out long before the last decade of the 15th century when this grosso was struck. It is probable that another function was intended for this large silver washer but what…

Object type: BULLA
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Medieval papal bulla of Clement V (pope 1305-14). The bulla is poorly preserved, being very worn on both obverse and reverse sides. The obverse reads CLE/MENS relatively clearly, but wear and some loss at the bottom of the bulla makes it difficult to see the numeral after the :PP. Two visible vertical strokes make this most likely to be the V typical of Clement V's bulla, as Clement II (1046 - 7) used bullae of a very different design (without the SPA SPE reverse, introduced by Gregory VII, 1073-85) and there does not appear to be space for any further vertical strokes to have been los…

The object is a silver grosso issued by the Italian city of Bergamo (ref: CNI IV, 45/138). The coin has the image and name of the Emperor Frederick II, king of Sicily, and dates to the mid decades of the 13th century - c. 1250s-60s. The coin would have been produced to a good standard of metal, certainly over 90% fine silver. Its current weight is 1.49g, which is probably about a gram less than its original weight. Bergamese grossi would not have been current in 13th century England and I know of no other example found here. It has in any case been substantially altered and it could n…

Medieval gilded silver collet probably from an annular brooch. Oval at the base, tapering to a circular setting which retains a pale powdery material, probably cement to hold the now missing stone. There are scars at the base where originally soldered to the missing frame, and on the sides where separate sheet arms rising from the frame to the collet were originally soldered, as on a copper alloy example from London (Egan and Pritchard, 2002, 251, fig.162, no.1319). A complete example of an early 14th century brooch of similar construction was found at Broxtead, Essex (PAS database num…

Medieval silver, gilded pendent cross consisting of a central flat roundel with four oval-sectioned projecting arms each tapering slightly to a globular terminal decorated with multiple stamped annulets, now very worn.
