The band and stone are still in excellent condition.
One for local historians, epic battle enthusiasts and would-be knights of all ages!This majestic 15th century sword is of a type which became popular among medieval knights due to the increased use of plate armour on the battlefield.Wielded with two hands, the superior length and weight of this weapon meant it could deliver a more powerful blow to an opponent.This intricate manuscript, dated 1400-1499, was created in East Anglia for the Diocese of Norwich and we anticipate it appealing to museum supporters, local writers and illustrators, writers’ groups, religious or ecclesiastical societies or perhaps local businesses such as designers, printers or an organisation with a long history. This gold ring is a remarkable survivor found during excavations of the ground floor of Norwich Castle Keep in 1986.Elaborate lettering, borders in colour and gold and 13th century illustrations make this a fascinating object and, as a gold supporter, you will be invited to an exclusive talk by castle experts who will guide you through its important history. Its dazzlingly large garnet is half the size of the ring itself.The band is finely engraved with the Flemish words ‘Ich lidet gherne’ (I bear willingly), possibly referring to tolerance or forgiveness.

This object will also be of interest to museum supporters, local historians and weaponry enthusiasts and thanks to its ‘gold’ status meaning that its adopter will be able to attend an exclusive curator-led event.
You may have just found the perfect object to adopt for that dog-lover or ceramics enthusiast in your life.
The handles were often carved from hardwood and this one has an ivy root handle.
