Harness fitting fragment (?bridle bit) Small fragment of a cast copper alloy harness fitting with lipped decoration. When complete, it appears that this would have consisted of an outer ring, enclosing a smaller decorative ring. The rings are flat on the reverse, giving a D-shaped cross-section. Both rings are now broken, the remaining fragment consisting of a pair of moulded lips, which lie across the joining section of the two rings. The lips are drilled on the inside, possibly to hold enamel. There is quite a lot of surface corrosion, and on the reverse of the object are the remains of two pieces of charcoal. Parallels: This is unlikely to have formed part of a terret, as it is not moulded in the round, but could have formed part of a bridle bit ring similar to M.43, or M.44. It resembles Spratling's (2011) style group IV. Measurements: Length: 42.1mm; width of ring: 11.7mm; width of lip moulding: 20.72mm; thickness: 7.2mm; weight: 28g
