I found this small ring brooch. It is cast copper alloy with maybe glass and enamel decoration. Any thoughts?

Looks like an annular brooch 13th / 14th century. Medieval period

Nice find :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

A similar type of thing but the pin was on the back of this one.

To me, yours looks a lot less crudely made than the one you linked on PAS. In fact the shape of yours looks very uniform and looks to me to be later although how late I don't known. I have found similar but oval shaped and was told it was likely to be from the 1800's...

That was my general thought too, but would be good to narrow down the age. :thumbsup:
