N4695 : Clasp, hollow, of fairly thick gold, left plain at back; two lions springing towards each other, but with heads averted, tails twisted around over backs. In the field below, a pattern of raised tendrils and trefoil dots, the lions manes are indicated by a sort of scale pattern and their hair by rows of hatched lines, engraved; these patterns are continued along what was the upper edge of the clasp. Below have been attached at even distances four lengths of piping intended probably for a pin. Beneath each tail is a large irregular hold and beside this two smaller holes to enable a gold wire ring to pass from front to back; one of these rings is still in position.
