Object type: HARNESS MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Doncaster

A cast copper-alloy heraldic harness mount of Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1400. It is shield shaped and has an integral mounting stud, set slightly off centre, on the reverse. There is red enamel on the front of the mount and faint marks also suggest the presence of a fess (transverse band) in a metallic colour, although insufficient detail remains to identify the armorial bearing. There were probably further motifs on the field, but these cannot be determined. The exposed metal displays a dark brown patina. The mount is 28mm long, 23.6mm wide and 10.2mm thick. It weighs 11.23gm. C…

Copper alloy Harness Pemdant. Cast heater shield shaped plate with the heraldic figure of a ?lion rampant left modelled in bold relief against a sunken field with a rough surface confined by an upstanding rim.
