Probable post-medieval lead weight or decorative mount. Sub-circular, with a four petalled 'tudor rose' with large central pellet in high relief on the upper face. The edge is damaged, but retains traces of an upper and lower flange forming a recess similar to that found on the edge of pot mends, perhaps a means of attachment. There is a central blind hole on the reverse.

Diameter 55 - 62mm. Height 17mm. Weight 296g / 4151gn. This is close to 3/4 of a Troy pound (4320gn).

1500 - 1900.
