STRAP FITTING

Unique ID: BERK-E643CC

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

A cast lead alloy (pewter) strap fitting, probably for a horse harness and dating to the post-medieval period. The mount is in the form of a 'Tudor' rose, with the outer petals separated by openwork. There are two integrally cast spikes on the reverse for attachment. Although so-called Tudor roses are often attributed to the 16th century, the form remained in use after this period and this object is likely to be of 17th or even 18th century date.
