The bezel consists of a gold-walled disc filled with four fine-walled cells of opaque white enamel petals against a semi-translucent green glass background. The quality of the cloisonne is high. The work is probably continental, of Ottonian origin.
Found by Mr J. Cahill in October 2001 with a metal detector on land near Warwick; declared Treasure.
