Hi All,
Any ideas on this one?

I think it is made of thin copper with some black enameling on it.
It is about 25 mm across, 5mm deep and is hollow.


Thanks,

Nathan

It looks quite like a dagger chape.
Good things come to those who wait.

The black is likely to some sort of bitumen. For some reason the Tudors seem particularly keen of covering bronze items in it. :thumbsup:
