    About this item

    This is a Tudor silver-gilt dress-hook, dating to the 16th century.  The diamond shape of the dress hook is consistent with that of Read's Early Post-medieval Class D, Type 3 (#208-9) and dateable with the 16th Century AD (Read, 2008, p 65-66). Further examples have been recorded from Bradfield (SWYOR-699EE7), Wilberfoss (YORYM-A0CC3D) and Malvern Hills (WMID-06023F). This example is missing both the hook and the fitting, but the main decorative plate is large and attractive.
