A Tudor copper-alloy Toilet instrument shaped like a dagger. The tool retains the original suspension ring to enable the tool to be worn as a pendant. It is an unusual design but is intact except for the coral gem. See IOW-2AE147 and DUR-93A484 or 03474-JR from James Town for further discussion. This is a great example!
