Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast lead armorial cloth seal. The fragment consists of a strip, cut or torn across the diameter of a circular seal, 32 mm long, 14.5 mm wide and 1.5 mm thick, weighing 6 g. The fragment is damaged at both ends, so the precise diameter of the seal is uncertain. The front face is decorated with a double-arched St Edward's crown over a Tudor rose, within a ring of pellets. The back face is strengthened by a thicker band of lead, 3 mm wide, across the diameter of the seal. Egan (1994) illustrates a complete circular shaped cloth seal with an apparently identical design on…

One loop and the strap bar of a cast copper-alloy double-loop buckle with a trapezoidal frame. The fragment is 20 mm long and 23.5 mm wide, 3.5 mm thick and weighs 4.3 g. The upper and lower frame elements are 2.5 mm wide with bevelled inner edges. The inner edge of the remaining frame is vertical, with a pointed knop on the outer edge and ovoid knops at the corners. The pointed knop has a transverse groove which acted as the pin rest, but the pin is now missing. There are convex lobed protrusions at both ends of the strap bar, which is flush with the frame and trapezoidal in section. …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast copper-alloy skillet leg and foot. The leg is oval in section where it is broken, 43.5 mm in length, 30 mm in width, 14.2 mm thick and 85.2 g in weight. The fragment has parallel sides and is slightly thickened at the foot end, which is damaged and worn. There is a slightly raised central rib on the convex outer face, ending in a possible claw, with smaller, rounded claws on either side, but most of the foot has worn away. The inner face is flat but pitted and corroded. The broken upper end is slightly flared probably from when it was sheared off of the rest of the…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy barrel tap key with a bifurcate handle, which is lozenge-shaped in section, and has an arched bifid terminal on each branch. The key is circular in section. The top 9 mm of the key is parallel-sided, with a slight protruding ridge at the top and two incised lines encircling it at 5 mm intervals above and below. Between the upper two lines, on one side, is a round hole 2 mm in diameter, and between the lower lines there is another round hole, 3 mm in diameter, which are both filled with corroded iron, suggesting that the upper one is a rivet and the lower…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy double-loop sub-annular buckle which is oval in plan and convex in section with a bevelled underside. The pin bar is inset from the front of the frame and surrounded by iron corrosion product from the iron pin which is now missing. The chape is also missing but would also have been attached to the pin bar. The surface of the frame has a good dark green patina and patches of black lacquer which would have protected the buckle from corroding. The buckle is 22.7 mm long, 19 mm wide, 3 mm in height and 2 mm thick. Whitehead (1996) illustrates examples of similar buckle…

Fragment of a cast copper-alloy cauldron rim. Trapezoidal in plan, 50 mm long, 29.5 mm in width, 4.5 mm thick and 34 g in weight. All edges of the fragment are broken but there an abrupt change of angle of around 45 degrees across it indicating that it is from the junction of the body with the out-turned rim of the vessel. The curve of the fragment suggests a large vessel with a diameter of around 300 mm, with a possible capacity of 3 gallons. Cauldrons with sharply out-turned rims were widespread and common in the 17th century. Butler and Green (2003) illustrate many cauldrons from t…

Incomplete cast copper alloy double-loop vesica-shaped buckle frame, with strap bar but the pin is missing. The central strap bar is flush with the frame and narrows from 6 mm to 2 mm in the centre where it has been worn thinner by the pin. The loops are slightly asymmetrical and oval in plan. The frame is angled, becoming wider at the outer edges of the two loops, coming to a point mid-way along the outer edge. The frame is flat on the back with a slightly convex upper face. The upper and lower edges of the frame are pitted and corroded but there is slight evidence suggestive of a sma…

Cast copper alloy spoon finial or knop in the form of a female hooded figure draped at the back, with a bundle in front of her left arm, so perhaps a figure of the Virgin Mary holding the Christ child, but the figure appears to have bare legs and is also holding a vessel in her right hand so may represent a more Classical female figure holding a water jug, which has been copied in many media since. The figure is worn and corroded and so small that it is hard to make out enough detail to identify it. Apostle spoons are generally silver or silver gilt with a religious figure forming the…

Incomplete cast copper alloy leg and foot from a cauldron. The leg and foot are rectangular in plan, triangular in profile and plano-convex in section with a flat back. The base of the foot is no longer flat but has several cavities where it has worn away through use. There are three rounded ribs, the central one widest at 11 mm, running parallel to each other from the broken upper edge of the leg to the transverse collar above the foot. Below the collar the foot expands and is everted outwards at a 45 degree angle and continues the three toes or claws with the central one again most p…

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with a 15 mm wide internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly, in profile, to suggest a shallow straight-sided bowl, and the curvature of the rim, in plan, suggests a diameter of about 300 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 6 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 5 mm thick. The interior surface of the fragment is pitted from the sand casting process and the exterior surface has many parallel horizontal lines which ar…

A rim fragment from a cast copper alloy cauldron. The fragment is 75 mm in width, 41 mm in height and 3.5 mm thick, widening to 6 mm thick at the rim and a weight of 57.3 g. The rim is out-turned and bevelled on its inner edge with the upper face flat, so that it is triangular in section. The curvature of the rim suggests that it would have been 280 mm in diameter which falls comfortably within the normal range for a cauldron and suggests a vessel with a capacity of between 4½ and 6 gallons. The exterior surface is rough and has patches of black burnt organic matter encrusted on to th…

A fragment of a foot ring from a cast copper-alloy ewer, flagon or candle holder. The fragment is 75 mm in length, 30 mm deep or wide and 2 mm in thickness and weighing 22.2 g. The fragment has been flattened, with a height of 15 mm, and twisted but the curvature suggests a diameter of around 100 mm. The underside is rough and pitted from the casting process and the outer or lower edge is worn through use. The lower band is 13 mm deep and decorated with six incised vertical lines forming a 13 mm wide central band with two pairs of narrower bands, 4 mm wide, on either side. When the foo…
