High class Tudor hook tag found at Pulham Market is 'off the scale'

Recommended Posts

The workmanship on a tiny, early Tudor hooked tag discovered by a metal detectorist "is off the scale", an expert has said.

Hooked tags are believed to have been used by women to hold one layer of skirt from another so both can be seen.

Found near Pulham Market, Norfolk, it originally had an elaborate filigree frame and 12 green glass inlays.

"A mad amount of bling went into the tag, why do this when we can't see them?" said historian Helen Geake.

This find, measuring 24mm by 20mm (0.8in by 0.7in) tag, would have belonged to someone "very high class", said Dr Geake.
