Medieval copper alloy mount, 25mm long, 11mm wide, and 7mm thick, and weighing 1.5grams. The object is triangular in form and circular in cross section. It is hollow and has damaged edges and is in fairly poor condition. It appears to be formed from a folded sheet and it terminates at its apex in a probable cast? loop. This has a rectangular cross section and a sub circular form with a crescent shaped recess. This appears to be a damaged suspension loop? The object has a small patch of gilding remaining.
