Unique ID: WILT-038F81

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

A Medieval copper alloy mount, probably dating to c. AD 1150-1450. The mount comprises of a central circular boss with a convex front and concave reverse. The front of the boss is decorated with a series of transverse ridges, each scored perpendicularly creating a corded appearance. Expanding from either logitudinal end of the boss is a perforated circular lug, each holding a separately made copper alloy rivet in situ.

The bar mount is 19.11mm in length, 10.57mm in width and weighs 1.99g.

Two mounts of very comparable form can be seen illustrated by Egan & Pritchard (1991: 214, nos. 1160 & 1161), both were found in contexts dating to the late 14th century, although mounts of this form appear to have been popular throughout the medieval period.
