A medieval cast copper alloy seal matrix in very fine condition. The matrix is of double oval form and measures 44.13mm by 27.28mm. The seal depicts St Paul, enthroned, within a rounded trefoil arch.

County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An unusual medieval cast copper alloy D-shaped buckle with a narrow offset bar. The buckle is flat with a rounded outer edge which is decorated with sinuous double punched lines and with groups of pits in the field outside. There are four vertical panels on the inner edge of the outer frame, one pair acting as the pin seat. The sheet metal pin is made from a different metal. The projecting vertical panels are difficult to parallel as is the extensive use of pucned decoration. A 14th century date seems reasonable.

The body of the bird is blue with white spots, white tail feathers, a red eye, and a blue wattle. Bifurcating branches in green appear both above and below the bird. The apex loop is broken. The use of white enamel within a field of blue in particular suggest that this may a Limoges product of the 13th century. No gilding is visible but it was probably originally present.
