AN00448801_001_l. Silver engraved rectangular side-panel from house-shaped casket shrine. The engraved ornament consists of three roundels with plain borders, each with an equal-armed cross with a central piercing. The crosses have a billeted mid-rib; on the two horizontal arms of the cross on the right this changes into a narrow billeted border. The remaining fields, within the roundels and between them, contain interlaced triquetras, the central ones billeted, the rest is plain. The corners of the plate are pierced for attachment, and the whole design is surrounded by a billeted line, missing in the bottom right corner. Panel has been trimmed, and pierced for secondary rivets. The back is plain.
