  • Thumbnail image of SUR-AA0C68

Record ID: SUR-AA0C68
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete probable mount of late early-medieval date. The mount, the upper part of which only survives, shows a facing animal head with large ears, cut off below the nose. This animal head recalls those en-face animal masks on stirrup-strap mounts of Williams's Class B. It can be compared with SUR-ADA177 on this database.

A copper-alloy belt or harness mount of probable 17th century AD date (B.Read, 2001, p. 34).

A copper-alloy belt or harness mount of probable 17th century AD date (B. Read, 2001, p.35-37). The plate has two identical sections at the top and bottom, both of which have rounded corners, a single projecting knob at the centre point of the horizontal edge, and taper towards the centre. At this centre point the vertical edges jut out slightly to accomodate a cast five-petalled flower design. The remainder of the plate is decorated with raised scrolls. On the reverse are two projecting rivets of circular section. These are aligned vertically above one another and are bent outward…

County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A damaged and incomplete lead plaque of uncertain date. The object has been cast and would probably originally have depicted a classical style bust. It may be Roman in date or may be a much later decorative plaque from a funerary monument or garden ornament. Only the head-dress now survives. It is elaborate in design, with a pointed crown-like base and a scallop-shaped or acanthus leaf portion above. Extending from the left hand side (as you look at it) is a feather-like protrusion (now bent). It is likely that a similiar protrusion originally existed on the opposite side also.…

Roman cast copper alloy mount in the form of a human head wearing a radiate crown with seven spikes - probably the sun god Sol. Very corroded with little detail discernible.

An Iron Age copper alloy decorative mount, probably of mid to late 1st century AD date. The perforated copper alloy mount or escutcheon is probably from a vessel. The mount is likely to be complete with a length of 23.05mm, a width of 15.89mm and a depth of 21.45mm. The sides of the mount are flat and converge towards the ‘beaked’ end. A circular perforation with a diameter of 6.6 - 7.6mm penetrates both sides near their top. A smaller perforation with a diameter of 5.0mm meets the first opening from below. The base of the mount has an integral circular pin, presumably for…

Cast copper alloy mount. The mount is circular in plan and flat in section. One side is decorated with a moulded, slightly raised letter I entwined and passing through the centre bar of a letter S. Around the letters are irregular incised short dashes and lines, not quite cross-hatched, but used to fill the empty field around the central design. The reverse of the mount is plain. There are no signs of attachment to the reverse. The edges of the mount are irregular in places, but the object does appear to be mostly complete. The surface of the mount survives with an even mid green patin…

Cast copper alloy mount, probably late medieval. The mount is subcircular in plan and domed in section with a recessed reverse. It shows a human face of indeterminable gender. The face is moulded with a hairstyle that frames each side of the face. It has a grooved centre parting with two transverse grooves that breaks the top of the hairstyle into three rows.

A small bust, probably representing the head and shoulders of Cupid, emerging from a calyx. The hair has a ‘crest’ on the crown of the head and the rest of the hair is full and wavy, the eyes are well-defined and hollows at their centre suggest that the pupils must originally have held inlaid settings. The face is full, the nose quite broad and the mouth is closed. The reverse is hollow with traces of lead within it. This object is probably a mount from a vessel. The bust is 31mm long, 22.5mm wide and 14mm thick.

Lead disc, possibly a mount, with relief decoration depicting lines or spokes radiating from a central domed boss. Possibly a post-med cloth seal - there are slight remains of a projection on one side. The back disc would have a raised rivet/dome to decure the front disc?

Undated copper alloy and silver mount, 29mm in diameter and 11mm thick. The object is in a fair condition with a green patina and weighs 13.67 grams. The object appears to be the back plate of some sort of mount and has two semi-circular bands of copper alloy, 26mm long and 10mm wide, attached to the back. These are incomplete, with broken edges, but appear to have been fixing loops. Curiously the object has five silver rivets, four are arranged in a square formation but the fifth is in the centre and underneath the loops. This may suggest that the loops are later additions?

Identification of this pair of artefacts is prejudiced by factors noted below. They were presumably cast in copper-alloy. They are cordate with a protrusion at the narrow end which is broadly trefoil in shape. In the side elements of the trefoil are circular perforations either for suspension as a pendant or for suspending further, lost elements in their capacity as mounts. It is thought that they are likely to be 18th-century harness mounts, of a type illustrated in Bailey (1995, 88; ref. 32).
