County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy pedestal / pendant seal matrix of medieval date (1250-1400). Originally the die was circular and now is roughly oval in plan due to combination of old breaks and abrasion.

The body of the matrix is a hexagonal pedestal formed from six tapering sides which rise to the mid-point and terminate in a series of moulded bands. The pierced loop would have extended above this but is now lost. A transverse hole has been drilled through the moulded bands and the remains of iron wire is present; this s…
