A post-medieval strap mount. It is tongue-shaped and has a collared half-rounded knop at the apex. A human mask decorates the body in the middle at the bottom. Above this, and running up the centre of the body is a plant with three pairs of downward curved branches. Two integral prongs are located on the reverse. The surface is coated with black lacquer. A surface deposit of fine orange coloured sand is visible in some of the recesses.
