A copper alloy ring (28mm diameter, 4mm thick) with a projecting broad hook which is about 12mm long and 10.1mm wide. It is possible a Post Medieval curtain hook dating form AD 1500 - 1700, but could also be a more generic strap fitting. It is cast as one piece. The hook curves forwards from the loop.

Overall, the object is 42.9mm lo…
