A Medieval enameled (and probably originally gilded or silvered) copper alloy shield-shaped heraldic horse harness pendant of the vertical banner type which would have rotated on a swiveling base. It measures 24.93x22.54x6.87mm and weighs 6.35g. The shield alone measures 24.93x17.09x2.99mm. The pendant is blazoned on both sides, gules a fess between (possibly) three mullets. Traces of red enamel survive on both faces, although much less beneath the horizontal band. Consequently it is not certain whether the two stars (mullets) above the band are complemented by a third below. A l…

A Medieval (1200-1400) copper alloy and enamelled lozenge-shaped horse harness pendant, bent a little at one point. It would probably have been gilded originally.

An incomplete Medieval copper alloy and enamelled (and probably once gilded) heraldic 'heater' shield-shaped horse harness pendant, measuring 44.38x28.19x8.89mm and weighing 13.3g.

A Medieval (1100-1260) copper alloy harness pendant with traces of gilding to the front. It is triangular in shape with rounded corners at the loop end and is concave to the reverse. It measures 30.24x12.60x1.01mm and weighs 2.11g. The loop is turned through 90° and projects forwards. Nick Griffiths comments that the shape and lack of enamel suggests date pre-1260. There is no trace of any engraved design so it was presumably originally just plain and gilded.
