Front and reverse of a Cheapside hoard chain. Chain, gold with alternate roses and vine leaves linked by loops and staples. The roses are decorated in white champleve enamel; their leaves at the back in pale green enamel; the vine leaves are decorated in dark green champleve enamel. Such long chains fell in graduated loops almost to the waist, and were used to emphasise the V-shaped line of the bodice. Part of the Cheapside Hoard.
