O wow, that would have been lovely when it was complete
Lot of effort went into its making by the looks :thumbsup:

Did you find much else from that area?

Well done that is a lovely find indeed and I would agree with the ID you were given.
It may be a partifact but would take a good position in any detectorists display cabinet I would think. Lovely find. :thumbsup:
