Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Post-medieval cast-copper alloy mount in the form of an openwork quatrefoil with scallop shell shaped expansions between the petals. In the centre is an equal armed cross the ends of the arms of which are joined by projecting V-shaped points with rounded ends. The outer edge is much wider than the cross. Between the points, at the ends of the cross arms are large shell shaped expansions with flaring sides and outer edges that are shaped slightly into a trilobed shape. The front of each shell is decorated with three grooves radiating from the base to the outer edge, each flanked by nar…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper-alloy mount of elaborate openwork with a broken hook at one end, dating to the post-medieval period. The object is largely pointed oval in plan, extending at one end into a curved hook with broken tip. At the other end is a lozengiform knop with small trefoil tip. The centre of the mount is shaped by four trefoil shaped perforations that create an internal web that is complicated, but has longitudinal symmetry. Where the four central ribs meet the edge of the mount there are small bifid protrusions. The hook begins with a pair of addorsed crescentic mouldings. Above these lat…

A broken and incomplete figurative copper-alloy mount of medieval date (c. 12th/13th century AD). The mount would probably have depicted a saint full length, by reference to similar items discussed below; only the upper half of the torso and the head survive. The figure is shown facing holding a book in their right hand, through which a rivet hole has been drilled. An old break has occurred below this, largely diagonal, but also having removed some of the right arm. The body of the object is sub-rectangular and convex. The head above is moulded and set forward of the mount. A nose and…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A rectangular object, probably a mount, cast in copper alloy of probable late early-medieval date (c. 9th/10th century AD). Broadly rectangular, it has slightly concave long sides. Both short ends are slightly ragged with irregular protrusions, it is unclear whether these are unfinished or old breaks. It is probable the object previously continued below the lower edge where there is the stub of a projection which is narrower than the existing piece. A zoomorphic design fills the field which is bordered all around with a plain raised border. Made in sunken low relief the device is a…

Treasure case 2014 T229: Acquired by Museum of Somerset A silver gilt Medieval mount in the form of the Holy Rood. The piece is a plain cross bearing the haloed figure of Christ crucified. Two standing figures flank the cross, representing Mary on Christ's left, and John the Evangelist on his right (as we view it). A scrolled panel across the top of the cross probably bore the legend INRI (Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudiorum (Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews)) but this is now worn. The base of the cross and the figures of Mary and John stand on a base with a flat top and wide pyramidal…

A broken and now incomplete post-medieval mount, probably a strap-fitting, with a pair of integral prongs. The mount is sub-rectangular in form with trefoilate short ends decorated in openwork. Most of one of the openwork ends has been broken off at its junction with the main rectangular plate, with the vestiges bent under the plate to one side; there is a small stub at the other side. The openwork ends are decorated with back-to-back kidney shaped cutouts below and either side of a lozengiform cutout. Small triangular mouldings protrude from the cusps of the extant trefoilate end. Th…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy mount of uncertain date. It is symmetrical, formed of a sub-rectangular central plate with rounded triangular protrusions at each short end. It is thin, flat, and plain on both surfaces. The long sides both feature a semicircular cutout centrally. At the ends of the triangular protrusions is a small perforation for attachment; one of the holes has abraded through. The object has a dark-green patina where it survives but is otherwise corroded and lighter.

A corroded post-medieval cast copper-alloy mount of 17th to 18th-century date. It has a flat oval body. From each shorter end of the body protrude a slightly raised trefoil terminal and flared terminal respectively. Each terminal features a pair of crude grooves to delineate the designs. From the flat back emerge two integral prongs. These spring from circular bases at the trefoilate terminal and the junction of the body with the other terminal. Only stubs of the prongs survive; they appear to be of rectangular cross-section. This mount has corroded to a red/brown colour. Such mounts …

A corroded post-medieval cast copper-alloy mount of c. 17th-century date. It has a flat trapezoidal body with bevelled edges on its upper surface. From the narrower end of the body an initially wider triangular protrusion emerges. From the wider end of the body is an initially narrower circular protrusion. From the flat back two integral prongs would have emerged. One no longer exists; its attachment scar is located at the centre of the circular terminal. A prong emerges from one of the bases of the triangular terminal, as such completely off centre. The prong curves inward to the cen…

A post-medieval cast copper-alloy mount with two integral rivet spikes on the back. The mount is an openwork cross fleuretty in shape with a central lozenge from the corners of which project four arms each of which split into a trefoil fleur at the end; the outer petals curl over inwards and touch the petal of the next fleur. The outer edge is shaped to the petals. The centre is moulded on the upper surface and is a quatrefoil flower with central pellet. The back is flat. The attachment spikes are circular in cross-section, they taper from the base but both are broken with little sur…
