Medieval lead alloy seal matrix, 27mm in diameter and 3mm thick. The object is in good condition with a cream patina and weighs 13.84 grams.

The centre is divided into quarters and each has incised diagonal lines filling it. The inscription has some letters upside down and some not reversed, it appears to say PATRICHPRENDS.

Recorded from impression and details supplied. A lead alloy, vesica-shaped (pointed oval) seal matrix, back unseen. The top of the matrix is distorted, making the initial cross and S' indistinct and difficult to see. Plain, flat back, fixing loop intact at top. Device of a dove-like singing bird. It appears to have two feet on the right-hand edge of the lettering/device boundary, suggesting that it may be better viewed by turning the matrix 90 degrees to the right. The bird is rather awkwardly engraved, as the legs are at an odd angle irrespective of the way it is viewed; the open beak…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and distorted medieval lead-alloy seal matrix. The matrix is pointed-oval in plan, with an engraved fleur-de-lis device at the centre of its die. The legend surrounds this design and, when printed, appears to extend clockwise from 12 o'clock. Damage has rendered this legend largely indecipherable and the only legible part is the beginning, which reads ' +S' ('Seal of'). A moulded latin cross decorates the reverse of the matrix, surmounted by a perforated lug handle, and an angled rim marks the perimeter. Height:36.3mm; width: 22.8mm; thickness: 3.4mm. Weight:12.35g.

Medieval lead alloy seal matrix, 30mm in diameter. The object is a well preserved circular seal with a central eight pointed star. The legend was originally recorded as SR ROBERTI REYNAUD but from the sketch it looks more like + ROBERTI REINAVD or, perhaps more likely, + S ROBERTI REINAVD (Seal of Robert Reynold). The N is retrograde. 13th century.

Lead alloy seal matrix, circular disc with a suspension loop projecting from the edge. The central device is of a sword or double-barred cross (perhaps a crusader?).

A lead alloy, vesica-shaped (pointed oval) seal matrix, with suspension loop projecting above the top of the matrix (i.e., as if it were a medallion).

At the centre of the rib, there is a point which appears to be slightly higher and wider than the rest of the rib. The opposite face is flat and damages around the edges. The legend is made up of large-ish letters well-space…

Medieval lead alloy seal matrix, circular and 30mm in diameter. It is 3.5mm thick and weighs 20.54g. On the reverse is a pierced lug 1mm in diameter. The lug is 11mm long, wider and thicker near the top (6x4mm compared to 2mm where it extends from the flat reverse). At the centre is a pierced pellet, which is at the centre of a cross with a pellet at each end of its four arms. This is inside an insiced circle 18mm in diameter. In each resulting quadrant, and equidistant between each pair of arms, another line extends, splitting as it approaches the circle to curve round in a upside-dow…

Incomplete 13th century non-heraldic, personal lead alloy seal matrix. This seal matrix is circular in plan with a diameter of 33.42mm, a thickness of 3.4mm and weighs 14.40g. It has a small semicircular gap to the edge of the die, which has obscured some letters. This gap may also have been where the knop for holding the seal was positioned, as there is no other evidence for it on the reverse. The break edges are worn, suggesting this damage occurred in antiquity. The seal die (in negative) is inscribed within a border, + [S]’ WALT[…]FL WILL DE LAhE. This may refer to Walter son o…

A complete cast lead seal matrix. The large flat pointed oval seal matrix has the remains of an integral lug on the reverse. The motif in the centre of matrix is very worn but could be a semi-abstract composition of a heart and fleur-de-lys. The legend is also quite worn but does read S:RAdVL[...]. This is likely to be translated as seal of Radulf. The length is 40.1mm, the width is 19.5mm and the weight is 17.07g.
