Tudor dress hook offered to Nantwich Museum

A Tudor cast silver-gilt dress hook has been offered to Nantwich Museum.

The item was found by a metal detector fan at Baddiley, just a few miles from Nantwich.

The brooch was declared treasure when it was found and has been offered to Nantwich as the nearest accredited museum to the find site.

The dress hook, which measures 30mm, weighs 7.9g and contains more than 10% precious metal, is regarded as an excellent example of its type.
