Object type: FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy fitting of probable medieval to post-medieval date. The body of the object is in the shape of an irregular lozenge, the straight sides being of unequal length. The corners where these sides join the semi-circular bottom show signs of a break; this was probably a place of attachment.

The object is possibly related to a drape ring (see Egan, et al. p. 62, fig. 43).
