Discovered in a Barrow in Derbyshire.
The ornament of the size and fashion, above represented, composed chiefly of filigree work, of gold or silver gilt, and set with garnets, or red glass. The inward part (a) is raised above the rest, and supposed to be gold. The partitions, marked (b) were filled with red glass or garnets; as were the four spots marked (c). The rest was filigree, or chain work. The large stone which filled the socket in the centre is wanting.
