This fine Anglo-Saxon disc pendant is typical of its type and finds a comparison in the gold pendant in the National Museums, Liverpool (World Museum, Joseph Mayer bequest, inv. no. M6231). Found in the same grave as the celebrated Kingston Brooch (M6226), the Liverpool pendant is similarly formed of a sheet of gold, punched through at the centre and articulated with smaller punched annulets. Such pendants were sometimes enamelled or set with garnets, such as the example sold in these rooms on 10 December 1996, lot 96.
