A copper-alloy mount in the form of a Tudor rose of post-medieval date (16/17th century AD). This small mount is essentially flat and in the form of a double five-petalled rose with small pointed lobes in the cusps. The centre of the upper surface is moulded in low relief with five arms emerging from a central point to join the side of the internal rose. Between each arm a small spur springs from the side of the internal rose; thus five heart shaped cells are created. In one of these white enamel survives in place. In an adjacent cell formed between the roses is red enamel, and within an adjacent pointed lobe is green enamel. This colour scheme is consistent with contemporary enamelling. On the back of the mount is a high fired residue, now black and slightly crazed.
