SPUR

Unique ID: SF-E6582D

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

An incomplete and bent copper-alloy rowel spur of Post-Medieval date. Only part of the arms and rowel box now survive, the remainder of the object is missing due to old breaks, now worn.

The arms are D-shaped, rectangular and taper from the thicker centre of the object towards the missing terminals. At the centre of the outer face is an integrally cast rowel box. This has an oval sectioned neck decorated with three circumferential grooves. At the terminal of the neck is a central rectangular slot with oval terminal knops with central circular apertures, where the now missing rowel would have been positioned.

This spur measures 41.17mm in length, 84.63mm in width, 4.72mm in thickness (at the arm), 21.56g in weight. The rowel box is 26.04mm in length and 8.32mm in diameter.

There are similar examples recorded on the PAS database (SF-B65264), (SF-B28D02), (SF-919951), (SF-812654), (SF-E39A98).
