The object may be from either a sword or a dagger, but without the rest of the object it is impossible to say for certain.
Similar complete examples can be found on objects in the royal armouries, such as a quillon dagger (X.1299) or a basket hilted sword (IX.2574).
The object is formed of a curved rod with a bulbous end that appears to have ribs forming a decoration.
The metal is a mid dark green with patches of mid brown.
One side has a decoration, though all that remains visible is part of a cross within a square. No similar examples have been found, though the form would suggest it was a bag seal. The obverse depicts three crowns and three lis around a central rose all within an inner circle.
