Object type: CROSS
Broad period: MODERN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy cross. A hollow die-stamped plain cross with suspension loop integral to its back plate. A strongly defined border to the arms is interrupted by a similarly rendered central oval panel. Very limited traces of gilding are trapped in the edges of the outer border, but the treatment is otherwise austere. The non-figurative style may point to a Non-Conformist context or to Modernist taste on the part of the wearer. Now bent, probably by plough strike. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1950 Length (as found): 47.5mm, Width: 40.4mm, Thickness: 4.3mm, Weight: 10.90gms

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A small U-shaped billet of sheet metal with two small projecting semi-circular 'ears' at its upper edge which are folded back against the plate. Traces of gilding appear around a triangular hump situated between the folded flaps. A stippled surface also lies between the 'ears' and between the hump and the edge of the object. .
