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

Copper alloy harness pendant. Cast sub-triangular plate with an oval loop with a drilled aperture set at right angles to its display plane; the base of the plate is curved. Its display face bears a crowded mass of stamped annular figures of diameter 1.4mm, with the arrangement perhaps begun with lines oriented towards the apex, and subsequently infilled. The use of punched relief resembles the surface treatment of non-armorial harness pendants of the later 12th and early 13th centuries (Ashley 2002, pages 4-7, fig. 7 no. 14 is triangular). However, there is no trace of gilding here. A loose fragment at the edge was detached and lost during examination. Suggested date: Medieval, 1175-1225

Height: 30mm, Width: 26.2mm, Thickness (clear of loop): 1.2mm, Weight: 3.68gms
