Copper alloy cast Medieval to Post Medieval handle retaining loop from a metal vessel such as a chafing dish. Oval in shape extending to a short rectangular cross-section neck with a small collar lip on either side. A projecting integral circular stub with an upset end acted as a rivet securing it through the wall of the parent vessel.

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete lead/tin alloy Medieval mount or badge. Originally circular in form with beaded knops set around the periphery; only one group of three knops survives at the 7 o'clock position on the front face, most of the rest being lost to old edge damage. The front face has a circular raised border with the monogram IhC (Greek letters - iota, eta, sigma) raised in the centre. The upper stroke of the h is horizontally barred to form a cross. The reverse is undecorated with a central integral prong bent outwards; the stub of another prong survives, positioned behind the circular border. E…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy Post Medieval knife terminal scale. Tongue-shaped with curved terminal end with the remnant of the corroded iron knife tang sandwiched between two external copper alloy plates. Central circular depression visible on the surface of one plate betrays the single rivet that holds the whole together. Both plate surfaces are decorated with scored images, one of which appears to be a beast but cannot be properly resolved; the other is a robed or winged, possibly crowned standing figure facing left. Circa AD 1500-1800.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy discoidal weight with convex sides. The weight has an even green patina with no formal discernable markings on either side. One side however, does have six nominally parallel lightly scored lines running across the face, probably done with a knife. The weight of 11.13g is not a discernable fraction of any standard unit of measure. The lack of diagnostic features means that only a wide date range can be assigned. Circa AD 500-1700.

The front face has extensive remains of gilding. Cf NMS-A34A43 and IOW-4A5357. Circa AD 1600- 1700.

Post Medieval tin alloy fragment of a robed probably religious figurine. The figure is hollow and is extant from the waist up with much of the reverse missing from old breaks. The surviving part of the reverse juts out behind the head forming the top and one side of a hollowing rectangular shape, it is not evident if this forms part of a surface mount or perhaps a pack worn on the back. Lower arms are bent at the elbows with hands clasped together at the chest. Flowing robes or vestments are detailed below the arms which flow symmetrically into the centre from both shoulders. There is …

Lead alloy figurine, crudely cast in high relief. The pose is reminiscent of Medieval monumental effigies but there is no detail to suggest armour, weaponry or costume. The body shape is perhaps more suggestive of a female figure consisting of a small round face, veiled or shoulder length hair; pronounced shoulders and breast area with strongly moulded lower arms folded across the waist. The groin area below the hands is a moulded triangular shape, which at some stage after casting has been vertically pierced, possibly to represent female genitalia. The legs meet at the feet, which are…
