Post Medieval, 17th century, cast copper alloy openwork mount with integral attachment spikes. The mount is flat and shaped into four lobes, two large pointed oval lobes alternating with two smaller circular lobes. The tip of one of the pointed oval lobes is lost, possibly to damage. The lobes have circular holes in the centre and there is a further hole in the centre of the mount; the holes in the pointed oval lobes join the central hole while those in the circular lobes are connected to it by an indent on the front. On the back are two integral spikes, one is complete and bent inwards at 90 degrees, the other is only a stub with the rest lost to an old break. It is 21.2mm long, 15.4mm wide, 1.1mm thick excuding the rivets, 4.9mm including and weighs 1.21 grams.
