That is a very interesting find well done ::g ::g

The Norwich museum has one of the largest collection of Hawking rings more than the BM.

Hope you can find out who the owner of the bird was.

I wonder if it has royal connections ?

Research so far shows it belonged to Sir Wyllyam Mallory, the first Yorkshire man to be knighted by James the 1st. Apparently, the town, Kirkby Mallory was named after the family

Little update on this one. the missus received a letter stating the York museum are wanting to acquire it. would be nice to see it on display.
