    About this item

    This is a large Tudor period silver-gilt dress-hook, dating to the 16th century. The body is trefoil shaped, comprising a trio of bosses with wirework. Such hooks were worn during the post-medieval period in order to secure items of clothing. This example corresponds to Read's (2008) typology as part of the early post-medieval Class D. It can be dated on this basis to the 16th century or Tudor period. It is a good chunky example, intact except for the tip of the hooked pin. Further examples have been recorded from Horsham (SUR-B67D2E), Doncaster (SWYOR-00CFE5) and Broadland (NMS-8F0E3C). This example was originally found in Salisbury in 1984 and reported to the Devizes Museum.
