A cast, copper alloy, medieval heraldic pendant with enamel, dating from 1250-1400. It is a "lozenge shaped" pendant, similar to the "London Museum Medieval Catalogue", page 118, figure 38 (II). The lozenge shape is not uncommon, perhaps a change of fashion, it did not signify use by a lady until much later. It has lost all of its suspension loop. The place it has broken off from is obvious. There are small remnants of green enamel (not to be confused with the verdigris). There are also remnants of red enamel. Some gilding and silvering also survive. It has a dark brown patina and som…
