Description: A teardrop-shaped cast object, tentatively identified as an incomplete hooked clothes fastener of the early post-medieval period. The front face of the object is decorated with five roundels arranged as a four-petalled rosette, the central roundel consisting of a moulded pellet in a circle. The object is heavily corroded and much of the detail is now lost. It is possible that the four petals originally had insets of a different material. The attachment loop and the hook were most likely a separate part in copper alloy or iron, as indicated by the quatrefoil-shaped impression on the back surface. The nature of the corrosion suggests that the alloy has a high tin content.

Cf. UKDFD 18809, a hooked clothes fastener of generally similar form, but cast in lead.

Description: The hooked front plate of a small book clasp of late medieval to early post-medieval date. The plate is sub-rectangular with a slightly flared and notched attachment end and three perforations along the length, the two outermost of which retain copper alloy rivets. The third, central, perforation is encircled on  the front face by two concentric grooves, and is probably a decorative feature only. A fragment of leather is retained on the back of the plate by the rivet at the hooked end. The back plate is missing.
