Tubular casting of silver, broken at both ends and with cast decoration on all external surfaces and one glass inlay remaining; maximum length 38mm; width 14.5 mm. There appears to be gilding and this is neither confirmed nor denied by the scientific report. Part of the original upper edge remains together with a broken hole for an attachment rivet, showing that this is a discrete finial or decorative terminal. The broader part of the tube consists of three panels of similar six-strand interlace in low relief which taper slightly to a narrow collar above a prominent rounded collar (le…

County: Wiltshire

An Anglo-Saxon, biconical bead made from wire mesh. This appears to be attached to two gold loops, which frame the aperture through which, for instance, the thread of a necklace may have been fed. It is difficult to discern the exact construction of the object, as the wire is stuck to soil, which appears to fill the bead. Microscopic investigation showed, however, that the bead may have been composed of two layers: an inner, sheet gold layer and the outer wire mesh applied over it. The inner, sheet gold layer is only visible in one place and it is therefore impossible to say whethe…

A post medieval gold lace tag (aglet) dating AD1500-1550. The body of the object consists of a gold sheet tube. At each end of the tube is a border of wire in the rope twist design. There are two sets of two parallel wires in the rope twist design along opposite sides of the tube and this creates two main panels on the body of the object. Each panel is decorated with rope twist wire and this creates decorative cells, with one much larger cell in each panel. One end of the tube has a border of four triangular panels containing a rope twist wire circle within each triangle, one of which …
