Fragment of a silver sheet band annular arm-ring, comprising approximately half of the object and one terminal. The arm-ring is convex in cross-section and tapers towards a plain rod-like terminal, bent at the end to form a loop. The front face of the arm-ring is decorated with stamped ornament in two longitudinal fields separated by incised lines, incorporating triangles containing four pellets, opposed and interlocking triangles. The edges of the arm-ring are cracked and there is a break across the central part. Four nicks are visible.
An additional fragment of the same arm-ring is registered separately as 1841,0711.342.
