Object type: HARNESS PENDANT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy shield shaped pendant of probable Medieval date, suggested to be about AD 1200-1400 based on similar entries to the database. The surface is covered in verdigris and is uneven due to corrosion. The object appears to be composed of multiple affixed layers of copper alloy sheet, rather than one cast object, and this is what has now provided a rough, uneven appearance as layers have corroded at different rates. This object, whilst small, is possible a harness pendant; similarly shaped examples recorded as such can be found under WAW-1AB8D7 , SWYOR-8E40F6 , DOR-78C3FD and L…
