Nice photos really does show how small it is.


If its under 7.8 grams it would not require a hallmark.


I wounded if the flats side is the top and the post are for riveting it to something else ??

Nice find well saved.

Its the smallest that I have ever seen.

Could have belonged to a child in the 14th century era.

Have fun with the PAS. ;) Jerry.

I suspect that it is from way before people would even be thinking in terms of a hallmark. ::g

Thanks for the 'new pics' 'Billy Doyle' ::g The size is just astounding when seen 'scaled' ::g
I'm sure I won't be the only one hoping to see any follow-up developments. ::g Regards ss47

Smallest one that I can find on the net is on the PAS db (LIN-347C15) and is 9mm across. What does your brooch actually measure across? :-/

The grid on pic 2 on the OP is in mm so I'd say it looks about 8mm.

I couldn't find one with cast decoration that small except for posy annual brooches. Be interesting to find a reference to a similar one.


Nice interesting find. Well done ::g

Hi again, does anyone know of where I could get a valuation from for this brooch?

Timeline Auctions sell this sort of stuff. I'm not sure that will help much without an expert opinion about exactly what it is that you have got though.

Decorated silver annular brooches are not expensive, say £100 or so in good nick but may be much more if there is something special about it. I still think that yours might be a bit special. ::g

Thanks Fred.
I've no intention in selling, but I know my FLO is excited to see it and it's going to go through the treasure process. I just wanted to hopefully get an independent valuation in case a museum want it etc.
