Cast copper alloy stud or tack, sexfoil in plan with moulded decoration in the form of a three-layered fleuret with six small petals around a central circle and then six larger petals emanating from these and alternating with six lobed leaves within six arches that are meant to represent more petals underneath, alternating with six knops which form the border at the edge of the stud. The corroded base of shank on the back of the stud may be the remains of a separate iron rivet as it is covered in iron corrosion product so it is hard to see if this is another piece of metal as most of t…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late medieval or Post-medieval mount, probably a book fitting, probably dating to c. AD 1400-1600. The mount consists of a lozengiform plate with a central, domed boss with a concave reverse and central circular perforation. Dimensions: length 18.0mm; width 13.5mm; thickness 4.3mm; weight 1.44g. The mount can be compared to an example published by Egan & Pritchard (1991: 197, no. 1061), from a late medieval context but with them suggesting their use may continue into the Post-Medieval period. Comparable mounts on this database include NMGW-AC4A16 and WILT-DF0D10, the latter re…

Copper alloy possible mount. A thin [0.5-0.8mm] pressed metal plate forming a skeuomorphic representation of a richly decorated strap with bordered diaper-work decoration and fringed edges, passing through a sub-rectangular double looped buckle frame with doubly indented inner and outer sides and bowed upper and lower edges. The protruding end of a pin is also modelled. The buckle form is unusual and a close parallel does not appear in Whitehead's 1996 survey. The detail of the display face recurs in strong negative detail on the back, where gilding traces appear to be trapped. The pie…

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. A concavo-convex pressed metal fragment, probably from a larger setting of heraldic character. The fragment depicts a beast with an elongated snout with a curved forehead above it, and with a folded ear behind, and with a plain collar around the neck. The finder quite credibly sees a duck-like bird; this reporter would rather read the image as an heraldic hound. The thin metal may point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850. Height: 25.5mm, Width: 36.7mm, Thickness: 0.3mm, Weight: 2.65gms

Copper alloy possible mount. A flat plate of fungiform or mushroom shape with a slightly engrailed base and a central fixing hole of diameter 2.4mm. The crisp edges may suggest the object was die-stamped, which would imply a relatively recent date. Staining around the hole may be from an iron fixing pin [otherwise lost]. The object may have had a mechanical rather than a decorative function, perhaps as a spacer plate. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1850.

A worn copper alloy object, 22.2mm in length, which has been folded in on itself around a lump of ferrous concretion, possibly the remnants of a fitting, on its convex reverse. The exterior surface is smooth and worn, with a single projecting triangular knop at one end, a moulded ridge across the other and a projecting lobe to one side. Possibly an Iron Age mount, perhaps originally in the form of a stylised human face (although the folded and worn condition now makes it difficult to discern) and from a harness fitting or vessel. Circa 1st century BC.

An incomplete copper-alloy hooked mount dating to the Post-Medieval period (c. AD 1600-1700). The mount is flat and an irregular-trefoil shape with a D-shaped cross-section. The mount is bent inwards across the centre to give it a shallow v-shaped profile. The upper-section of the mount consists of a flat sub-oval plate projecting from the centre with a small circular perforation in the centre that still contains a small section of iron rivet. Below this is an openwork pattern consisting of two circular roundels surmounting a diamond-shaped section. This extends to a sub-rectangular se…
