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

A complete but worn cast copper-alloy harness pendant of Medieval date.

Consisting of a circular attachment plate with a rounded front and concave back face and an integrally cast central rivet. This is rectangular and tapers to a point. At the base of the plate is an integral double lug that has been folded backwards to create a transverse circular aperture with separately cast copper-alloy bar to enable attachment of the pendant.

The pendant itself is separately cast and circular with a rounded front and concave back face. On its top edge is an integral suspension loop. This is flat and oval with a central circular aperture set at an angle of 90 degrees to the plane of the pendant.

This harness pendant measures 40.92mm in total length (20.41mm in length for attachment plate and 25.27mm in length for pendant), 16.64mm in width at attachment plate, 17.44mm in width at pendant, 4.06mm in thickness at the lug, 0.89mm in thickness at the plate, 5.48g in weight.

This is a similar example from Norwich (Margeson, 1993: no. 1812) and recorded on the PAS database (SF-65FE35).
