HARNESS PENDANT

Unique ID: GLO-A56B94

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

Copper alloy shield shaped horse harness pendant that has a projecting loop on the top for suspension. The artefacts is heavily corroded which has resulted in the loss of all detail from both the front and back of the shield. However, traces of gilding are present on one side of the shield but not enough to allow identification of any coat-of-arms.
