Description: A copper-alloy hooked tag (dress hook) of the Anglo-Saxon period. The plate is circular with two projecting pierced lugs for attachment. The face has a circular cell at its centre which is inlaid with (deteriorated) niello and silver wire insets formed in scroll fashion. Multiple blind-drilled holes further decorate the surface, the sharp hook is intact.

See also; UKDFD 53484. The fashion of inset silver scroll work would appear to be a predominantly East Anglian variant. For a related strap-end of the period, see; UKDFD 36030.
