Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. The object is triangular in shape and hollow. It does not appear to be broken so determining what it may be a part of is problematic. It measures 31.9 mm long and 15.48 mm wide at the base and is 14.33 mm high. The ends taper slightly to one side, so the base is shorter at this side at 28.6 mm in length. The triangular aperture at this side is correspondingly slightly smaller. The object has a very abraded green patina with a red/brown hue where the surface metal has worn away. It weighs 16.2 grams.
