A medieval annular brooch, complete with pin. The frame is formed from circular-section silver wire and is decorated on the front with multiple radial lines. The pin is a composite fabrication of silver wire and strip, and is unusual in having a dagger-like 'cross-guard' at its hinged end. The shaft of the pin is of lozenge-shaped cross-section and has engraved zigzags along the full length of both the frontal faces. It is almost parallel for most of its length, and only tapers noticeably close to the tip. The hinged end has been made by forming a narrow strip of metal into a loop. The three parts of the pin appear to have been made separately and soldered together.
