As the title says, found Yesterday by Warrior Queen.
Assuming top of a Dress Hook.
Not found an exact match yet, looking for a date.
The holes look to contain " dishes " that may have had Gilding or something else.
Measures 21mm x 20mm.
Any info welcome.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

I think it’s a hooked tag, dating 1500-1700. Like this one

Single central flower on a solid design popular in Tudor Times, the top loop is different though, I like it
Very well done :thumbsup:

Can’t be a common variety as there only appears to be one like WQ’s on the whole database. Obviously there are hundreds of similar ones though!

Very glad she was well enough to go out detecting.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
