Object type: KEY
Broad period: MODERN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Cast copper alloy key, possibly to the bolt of a netting vice, with a broken openworked head above a moulded rib and bead neck, leading to a tapering shank. The object may also have been used as a button hook as the tapering point may have originally been curved into a hook. The end is now bent slightly, but if it was originally straight, it may have fitted into a cylcindrical bolt which was then turned within a vice to hold the netting while it was used for crocheting. Walker (1994) illustrates examples of netting vices with similar moulded decoration on page 87, and button hooks o…

Lead cloth seal of four-disc form, stamped on the inner discs, with the initial of the alnager: 'S' surrounded by the word 'HAMPSHIRE' inside a raised ring border: the other disc is stamped with a bird within a shield, which is in turn also within a ring border.

Object type: LINCH PIN
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper-alloy Iron Age linch pin terminal, which is the foot of the pin. The foot has a deep square socket, inside a cylindrical, tapering shaft. This square aperture would have held the iron pin, which has long since corroded away. Traces of this iron pin can be seen in the socket. The exterior of the shaft tapers down to the opposite terminal, to where it curves around and is attached to a flat circular plate. The surface is pitted but remains in a good condition, with a mid brownish-green patina. The flat, circular plate is slightly recessed on the front surface. Inside this…

A Post Medieval copper alloy S-shaped clasp (mid 16th - early 17th century).

Record ID: YORYM-08C2C5
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper alloy bar-mount. The mount has an oblong in the centre with rounded terminals. The top and bottom terminals each house a rivet hole, both still contain a copper alloy rivet. The rivet extends backwards from the mount. The metal surface of the object is dark brownish-green in colour and slightly worn. The mount probably dates to the 12th - 15th century. Two of these bar mounts would have hung down from a waist strap and would have held an arched pendant mount in position. Purses were often hung from these. Parallels can see seen in Egan and Pritchard, 1991, p214, Fig: 134.
