Description: The looped section of an early Anglo-Saxon wrist or sleeve clasp. It is rectangular in plan, with a rectangular loop for the clasp hook projecting from the centre of the front edge. Instead of the more usual piercings for sewing the clasp to a garment, it has three waisted projections, around which the thread would have been secured. Two of the projections are at the ends of the clasp, and one projects from the back edge opposite the clasp loop. The clasp is decorated with five transverse bands of beading in sunken relief.

Complete clasps of this type consist of one hooked and one looped element. Many have been found in female graves of the pagan period.

Description: An incomplete early Anglo-Saxon cast copper-alloy wrist or sleeve clasp with an integral central hook on one side. The attachment end is decorated with three ring and dot motifs and is pierced with six circular holes in two lines of three (the clasp is broken along the outer line of holes). These provided both a decorative effect and the means by which the clasp was stitched to a garment. The attachment edge was originally scalloped. The clasp bar is decorated with transverse grooves.

Description: Two early Anglo-Saxon cast copper-alloy wrist or sleeve clasps, found close together. They each have a serrated outer edge, two stitching holes and a rectangular loop for the clasp hook. They are crudely decorated with two bands of incised transverse lines and three blind holes. They appear to be matching items, possibly from the same garment, but from two separate clasps. (A complete clasp consists of one hooked and one looped element. Both the present items are looped.)

Many clasps of this type have been found in female graves of the pagan period.
