Dix Noonan Webb sell the Throckenholt Cross for £12,400
An early medieval gold cross, with possible links to Denmark, discovered by a metal detectorist in a Lincolnshire field.

LONDON.- A rare early medieval cross, known as the Throckenholt Cross, which was discovered in a field in Sutton St. Edmund, Lincolnshire was sold for £12,400 by Dix Noonan Webb in their auction of Jewellery, Watches and Objects of Vertu on today (Tuesday March 15, 2022) at their Mayfair saleroom (16 Bolton Street, London W1J 8BQ). It had been estimated to fetch £6,000-8,000, and after competition on the internet and telephones, it was bought by a private collector via the telephone.

The early Medieval gold cross pendant, which measures 31mm in length, dates from 11th-12th century and was discovered by 38-year old builder, father of three and keen metal detector, Jason Willis, who lives in Norwich. He said after the sale: “I am a roofer and I was working today, so I watched the sale over my phone while sat on a roof! I am over the moon and as I have just moved house, the money will go towards new items for the house.”

Dix Noonan Webb will be holding their next Valuation Day in Norwich on Monday, March 28, 2022 at The Maids Head Hotel, 20 Tombland, Norwich, NR3 1LB between 11am – 4pm and will be offering free valuations on Coins, Medals, Banknotes, Jewellery, Watches and Antiquities.
