An incomplete copper alloy Roman flat enamelled disc brooch (AD c. 80 - c. 250). The brooch has an oval-shaped plate, but edges are worn and the enamelled design suggests that the brooch was originally circular. The design consists of a central circular cell, missing its enamel inlay, with a wide copper alloy border. Surrounding this is a wide circle of blue enamel with six raised copper alloy pellets arranged in a circle within the enamel. Two very similar brooches are depicted in Hattatt (1989, p.344, fig. 203, nos 1029 and 1030), indicating that this brooch was originally circular. …

Copper alloy harness pendant. Cast rhomboid or diamond-shaped plate with an oval top loop at right angles to its display plane. The Arms comprise a cross crosslet gules [red] with a sexfoil in each angle, against a dark ground of indeterminate tint, now appearing dark grey [possibly blue/azure or black/sable].

This reporter would welcome better informed comment as to any family associations which the hera…

Copper alloy mount. Cast concavo-convex Limoges mount in the form of a robed saint. The figure is modelled from a simply rendered and elongated head with pits for eyes and a slit mouth, to the limit of a straight-sided robe with a high curved neck line. The robe was the field for polychrome enamel decoration in thin longitudinal parallel stripes, of which broader blue bands and narrower adjoining white bands are now the most prominent relicts, though there are further blue stripes between these more prominent stripes, which may indicate a distinct item of priestly garb such as a stole.…

Copper alloy brooch. Cast bow and fantail brooch, Mackreth type TR 4.1bx. Short plain semi-circular or half-cylindrical wings formerly retained pin gear of uncertain form. They are met by the top of a plain bow, which expands in its width towards a central disc with a reserved central dot, and a circular gutter probably formerly retaining enamel, though no colorant remains. Below the disc, a triangular fantail foot bears a pair of deep and possibly incised grooves, again apt to contain enamel though none remains. The edges of the foot are lost, but a slight basal protrusion may suggest…

Copper alloy harness pendant. A cast heater shield shaped pendant with an oval or comma-shaped suspension loop angled forward and set at right angles to the display plane. The shield is charged with a quadruped walking left with one clawed forepaw raised and its tail bent sharply above its back. The head appears small and avian rather than leonine, with an uplifted parrot beak, so this may be a gryphon rather than a lion. There may be another feature, possibly a floret or rhomboid, below the beast. Reddish [gules] traces of degraded enamel remain in the field; the beast and a broad bor…
