A cast copper alloy belt or strap mount. The object is in the form of a scallop shell. The front is slightly convex and moulded. The shell is semicircular with indented lines emphasing the rayed effect on the front. The mount is fractured at the base of the scallop shell, but a similar example on the database ( SOM- 854E79) suggests that a further decorative element would have completed the object. On the rear of the object, at the top of the scallop, is a circular-sectioned lug or rivet, which has been bent inwards and tapers to form a sharp point. The object has a mid-brown patina wi…

Cast copper alloy mount, hexagonal and flat, with a large off-centre rivet hole 3.7 mm in diameter. The hexagon is not regular; two parallel and opposite sides are longer than the others, making it 19.64mm long but only 12.41mm wide. At the shorter ends, one angled corner is longer then the other, making the angle more acute; the rivet hole is placed where the centre would be if the hexagon was regular and both angles less acute. The central hole is surrounded by incised oblique lines which slant outwards from the hole. They are relatively regular around the less acutely angled half, …
