A NOTE ABOUT THE COLLECTION
The purpose of this collection is not collecting the very best examples of items from the medieval period, but items used or treasured by the average medieval woman- pins and needles, a special brooch, buckles and strap ends, thimbles and other little trinkets. Some of the pieces are in very good condition, and some are in poor condition but have interesting features. I have bought these to study and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

This example is bold, large and silver-gilt! The terminals are fleur shaped having significance with the emblemen of the Virgin Mary. Such a brooch would have been worn by a noble lady or an abbess. The brooch is intact and in excellent condition. Ring-brooches are the most common type medieval brooch to survive and had a practical function: to fasten tunics, especially at the neck. Shaped as rings, with a long central pin, these brooches varied enormously in size, and could be tiny, smaller than a finger nail. Ring-brooches were made of costly gold or silver, or of much cheaper copper or pewter. They were worn mostly until the late fourteenth century, when changing fashions in dress included more closely tailored clothes and the growing use of button fastenings.
