Record ID: PUBLIC-ACA0D0
Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Post-medieval copper-alloy double-looped asymmetrical buckle frame, perhaps from a shoe, with white-metal coating. One loop is rectangular, the other D-shaped internally and with a pointed outer edge. The central bar appears to have been of iron and survives, although very corroded. There is a good parallel in Whitehead (2003, no. 598), also with an iron bar and white-metal coating; Whitehead dates this example to c. 1660-c. 1720. These buckles are usually small, and this one measures 26.37 x 21.61mm. It is 4.46mm thick and weighs 5g.

A late Early Medieval cast copper alloy stirrup-strap mount of uncertain class dating to the 11th century. The mount has five lobes with a central circular piercing at the centre. Moulded lines radiate from the centre to the junctions of the lobes and form six sections. The reverse is plain and undecorated. The bottom of the item curves back to form a flange at an angle of approximately 90 degrees giving an L-shaped profile. At the centre of the flange is a circular perforation, presumably for a rivet. Length: 39.5mm Width 38.5mm; Thickness: 2.5mm. The mount appears to be an unc…

Object type: HARNESS PENDANT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval copper alloy horse harness pendant. The item is shield shaped in plan. The front face has a slightly raised surface which possibly depicts a lion rampant. The reverse face is plain. There are no traces of enamel on the surface. The top narrows to a short point- this presumably was the attachment loop for suspension but it has now partially broken away and is worn. This harness pendant is particularly small in comparisson to other pendants, and it is possible that this was used for on a smaller animal rather than a horse (Brian Read, pers comm).

A Medieval copper alloy stirrup fragment, probably of 14th or 15th century date. The stirrup has the remains of both curving side arms present, but they have broken away at the ends; the stirrup bar is also missing. There is a scallop-shell decorative moulding at the top of the stirrup, which may indicate links with pilgrimage. The scallop-design has deep grooving with a convex upper edge and concave sides and base. Behind the scallp-shell is a rectangular loop, resumably through which a leather strap was fitted.
