  • Thumbnail image of HESH-BC2EB9

Record ID: HESH-BC2EB9
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy enamelled heraldic harness mount / stud of probable 14th-century date. The front of the mount is sub-triangular (shield-shaped) in plan and sub-rectangular in cross-section. The edges of the shield are slightly bevelled. A single pierced hole has been cut through the mi-point of the shield and probably held a small pin to fix the mount either to a box, piece of furniture or a piece of harness equipment. The design on the front of the shield is incomplete due to the loss of much of the inlaid enamel and applied tinned or silvered surface. What remains comprises a chequ…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete but slightly abraded cast lead alloy oval shaped seal matrix of medieval date (1200-1400). The seal matrix is sub-oval (oval with a single pointed lower edge) in plan and sub-rectangular in cross section. On the reverse face of the seal is a projecting heavily D shaped lug which is not pierced - it is presumably via this that the seal was appled and removed from the waxen impression. From this lug a single pointed arrow descends which is bisected by a saltire cross - all formed from raised cast ridges and all of which are abraded. The design on the front face of the matrix i…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Heavily clipped later medieval penny from the York (or possibly Durham) provincial mint. Due to the loss of inscription and heavily worn surface a better identification cannot be suggested - it is most likely to be a coin associated with the 15th century - based on the style of crown and bust, along with the presence of trefoils or something similar at the neck.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable complete forged iron arrowhead of post conquest medieval date (1100 - 1350). The arrowhead is broadly sub-triangular in plan with a central spine which extends from the tip to a hollow (?) socket. Two sub-triangular blades expand from either side of the spine; these are relatively short and stubby. One blade is better preserved than the other. In cross section the arrowhead is broadly diamond shape with a prominent spine / mid-rib. The arrowhead (without the socket) measures 37.9mm length, 26.0mm width. The socket is incomplete / broken (length: 43.5mm) and only one face sur…

A cast copper alloy fragment from a much larger figurine of Christ crucified of medieval date c. AD 1150-1350. The fragment is depicted in three dimensions and consists of the lower legs (below mid-calf) and feet of Christ. The depiction is stylised and the right foot is positioned over the left with a single drilled hole piercing both. It is highly likely that a copper alloy rivet or nail would have been driven through this hole fixing the figurine onto an organic wooden or bone cross / crucifix. The angle of the lower foot is wedge like suggesting that the figurine was bowed and susp…

A cast copper alloy leg or foot from a copper alloy vessel probably a cauldron or skillet of later medieval date (1300 - 1600). The foot is a tapering rectangular shape in plan and D shaped in cross section. The top of the foot expands and is dished and would have been soldered to the body of the vessel. The opposite end tapers and terminates in a rounded foot. The angle of the leg, when the foot is placed on a horizontal surface, is approximately 75°. The leg is undecorated and is a mid-brown green colour with an even patina. This patina has been abraded in several places, probably t…

The central hole is broadly circular and has been cast / set slightly off centre; it has an internal diameter of 7.6mm. The hole on the lower edge is unusual in that two rectangular cut wedges have been removed either side of the hole at a heigh parallel with the extern…

A complete cast copper alloy double looped buckle of probable later medieval or post-medieval date (1350-1650). The buckle frame is complete being broadly oval (figure of eight) in plan with a slight central bar. The pin is lost but would have been formed from a length of copper alloy sheet that was attached to the central bar by the end being folded to form an irregular 'wrap around' loop. There is no evidence on the frame of a pin reset or incised or applied decoration. The buckle has a slight purple hue and this maybe from an applied tin / white metal surface. The reverse of the buc…

An elaborate cast and enamelled copper alloy pommel from a small sword or dagger of Medieval date (1150-1350). The pommel is broadly rectangular in plan and profile; in broad shape it is a stylised crown with a broad central lis and two bi-foliate side fleurs, the details of which are picked out within an openwork design. The right hand fleur is lost due to an old patinated break which is flush with the body of the pommel. The petals of the lis and side fleurs conjoin. A small sub-rectangular cast hole (measuring 5.7mm x 3.8mm) is present on the upper edge positioned at the peak of the…

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy champlevĂ© enamelled mount - most probably from a casket or reliquary chest of high medieval date (c. AD. 1150-1250). The style of the mount is not as elegant as that known from Limoges and it is possible this may be an English or another continental piece in the same style. The plate is flat and rectangular; in profile it is bowed slightly, possibly by movement in the ploughsoil but probably by being levered from the wooden casket. The two ends of the mount are both broken and the breaks are patinated suggesting the damage is in antiquity / old. Four rivet holes ar…

A near complete but eroded cast copper alloy pedestal / pendant seal matrix of medieval date (1250-1400). The die is broadly circular in plan whilst the reverse pedestal rises to a suspension loop. The body of the matrix is a pedestal formed from six irregular tapering sides. At the apex would have been a moulded band surmounted by a single loop. This is lost and the pedestal is distrorted - the break is however old and patinated suggesting the damage occurred in antiquity. A larger oval scar is present on one face of the pedestal and it is likely this obscures a mark which would have …
