An incomplete copper alloy pedestal / pendant alloy seal matrix, of Post Medieval dating (AD 1600 to AD 1800). It is missing its terminal possibly an openwork fob handle or one arm of a multiple die. The die is oval in shape and depicts a flower probably a fleur-de-lis. The fleur-de-lis device, similarly executed, is seen on other post-medieval seal matrices, in particular those with multiple dies (for example see SOM-76F867). Such multi-die matrices tend to be attributed a 17th-century date (see Read 1988, 152; 1030, 1031.
