MOUNT

Unique ID: HAMP-9EA1B0

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A corroded and slightly bent cast copper-alloy mount of post-medieval date. The mount is flat and sub-triangular in form. At one end it tapers to a point, while at the other is a sub-rectangular protrusion. There are hints of slight expansion at the pointed end. The mount is seemingly plain although it is covered by corrosion product. The reverse features a pair of pointed lugs suggestive of a c. 17th-century date. Mounts of similar form and dimensions can be found illustrated in Read (2001, 37; refs. 329, 330). Such a mount would have probably functioned as a strap fitting. The mount has corroded to a variable mid-green colour over a red-brown metal. It has been bent upwards slightly at the pointed end as a result of old damage.
