This silver-gilt roundel from the Worcestershire County collection dates from the sixth century.
It is decorated with five chip-carved spirals and four are linked as pairs sharing a common stem over a triquetra knot, the fifth balancing the design.
The roundel is pieced at the centre, so was possibly originally used as a stud. The back is plain and it is thought that the roundel was part of an inlay on a high quality box. The other drilled holes were made later and may be to enable the object to be worn as a piece of jewellery.
Thanks to David Kendrick for his research into this object.
