Description: An incomplete gold and cloisonné garnet mount in the form of the upper body of a bird of prey in profile looking left, now slightly crushed and distorted. The bird has a curving pointed beak, a rounded head and waisted neck. The mount was made from a gold backplate, with beaded-wire filigree soldered around its edge so that it is visible from both front and reverse. The beaded wire is c. 0.8-0.9mm in diameter and was made by using a swage to form rather irregular, angular beads, several with a medial seam or Äquatorschnitt. Attached to the front of the backplate are …

Description: A medieval gold mount. The mount is octagonal in shape and has a central setting, now distorted, which contains a reddish stone, probably a garnet, the upper surface of which is flat and polished.

Early-medieval continental enamelled gold mount from Suffolk (2004 T141) On a gold base is soldered a round box which holds in its field the enamelled decoration. The seam is covered by a filigree wire. The design is achieved by means of large cloisons (cells) made up of continuous ribbons of thin gold sheet, which hold the enamel. The visible upper surface of the cloison walls, economically, draws the design itself. This shows a male frontal bust (head and neck), with large almonds eyes and nose formed by one continuous strip curled on itself, a small mouth and ?moustache above. …
