A collection of seven objects, majority incomplete or deformed, including: three fragments (halves) of open bracelets made of bronze, silver and electron; a fragment of a bar, probably from a modified bracelet; a trapezium-shaped pierced plaque decorated with geometric ornament; a bent bronze wire; a straight bronze ingot.

The fragments of the ornaments and the ingot were discovered by chance in 2007. The objects constituting the supposed assemblage were found on the surface of the ploughed field, adjacent to a multicultural settlement, site 41, at Machnów Stary. The homogeneous nature of the deformation of the ornaments indicates that originally they constituted the assemblage, probably belonging to the jeweller-moulder. Both forms of the ornaments, the bracelets and the rapezium-shaped plaques have parallels in finds from the early Slavic settlements in the Eastern Europe (Prague culture) and also in some Central European regions. A bracelet similar to the one found at Machnów Stary, made of silver, was discovered at the early Slavic stronghold in Szeligi near Płock, whereas parallel bronze plaques were in the deposit of ornaments from Mogiła in Nowa Huta, a district of Kraków.
