The hooked section of a copper-alloy hook-and-eye clasp of the late post-medieval to modern period. It is of two-part construction, consisting of a die-stamped sheet-metal plate and a wire hook with two integral sewing loops. The plate is of convex, semi-circular form with scalloped edges and relief decoration in the form of beaded ribs, scrolls and cross-hatching. The wire hook is soldered to the back with the two sewing loops protruding centrally from the edge, and the looped blunt hook (now flattened) bent backwards under the plate. Traces of gilt are present on the surface of the plate.
