A fragment of a copper alloy mount, possibly a furniture fitting or horse harness mount of later medieval or post-medieval date. The mount was probably circular in plan and has thin openwork linear panels around the outer edge. The internal design is too fragmentary to identify. Similar mounts are illustrated in Bailey (1999, 2001) and Read (1995) and these are dated from the 17th to the late 18th century AD.
