Post medieval gilded copper alloy mount 35.1mm in length. The mount comprises a transverse rectangular plate decorated with low relief scrolls between two smaller rectangular plates, each decorated with a row of six pellets. These smaller plates are surmounted by sub-triangular openwork scrolled finials with a knop at the apex. One finial is missing. The rear is plain and has two integral, circular-sectioned attachment spikes on the reverse, one of which is broken.

On the basis of comparative finds (NMS-316090), likely to be a 17th century harness mount.
