Copper alloy mount. Cast concavo-convex discoid plate with a pair of integrally cast incurved pointed prongs of length c.16mm on the back. The display face bears a rose with three overlapping orders of five petals apiece around a central pelleted boss, an arrangement resembling a 'Tudor' rose. The inner two sets of petals retain white enamel outlined by a bright green tint. Whether the green is applied, or merely a reserved and now-corroded copper alloy, is uncertain, though the effect is particularly pleasing. The petals of the outermost order lack enamel, and are pale grey, perhaps t…
