Lead alloy seal matrix of Medieval date c. 1250 - 1400. It is probable that the item is a personal seal matrix. Unfortunately the surface of the item is heavily worn and few details can be seen. The object is a pointed oval in shape and is concave. The plain underside forms a dome which results in a high point on the engraved face of the matrix, in the centre. There appears to be an engraved design in the centre of the face, and an inscription surrounding it along the border. However, the details of both the design and the inscription cannot be seen clearly. An impression was taken o…
