A copper-alloy medieval circa 14th century seal matrix of 'chess pawn' type. It measures 25.6mm in height, it has a lozenge shaped suspension loop with a circular hole through its centre. The shaft has a hexagonal cross-section and the die is circular in shape measuring 20.6mm in diameter. In the centre is a 'pelican in her piety' motif - a bird with three chicks in a goblet-like nest, pecking blood from her chest to feed her chicks with. This motif represents Christ sacrificing himself for the world. The inscription around the outside reads SVXPRDIVEI. This appears to be a blu…

A cast copper-alloy seal matrix of medieval date. The artefact has a faceted ?hexagonal handle terminating in irregular trefoil shaped suspension loop. The face depicts a seated Virgin and child, monkey below. The imagery in addition to the form of this matrix suggests a later medieval date for this object. The legend (see below) reveals that a 'John' would have owned this seal matrix, although the rest of the legend is unintelligible.

Three quarters of a lead circular seal matrix. Missing section is probably the very top of the matrix, meaning that the legend is illegible at that point. Back appears to have been flat and plain, although there may have been a small protrusion at the centre back. Thickened section above may be the flattened remains of the suspension loop. Device: Remains of an eight-petalled compass flower. Measurements: 30 mm x 26 mm; original diameter 30 mm plus.

Two adjoining pieces of a lead circular seal matrix, some 85% of the total. Missing section is the bottom right, but the edge is also damaged at the top left, meaning that the legend is illegible at that point. Back retains evidence of a cast design, possibly a small fleur-de-lys or double loop in the centre. Small raised section above is the remains of the base of the suspension loop. Device: remains of an eight-petalled compass flower, with the breaks being along the flower petals. Measurements: larger piece (almost exactly half of the original matrix); 32 mm x 18 mm; smaller piece:…

A lead vesica-shaped (pointed oval) seal matrix with slight bends at edges. Back is in relatively poor condition, but a pattern of dots suggest that it had a semi-raised design of either a fleur-de-lys, with the end of the midrib flaring out to form the uppermost petal and the lug, apparently unperforated, at the base. The other two falls were delineated by dots; alternatively, it may have been a design of three spirals. Device is a semi-abstract floral design consisting of two elegant fleur-de-lys-like falls. Above this, two lines of similar thickness to the falls curving inward to fo…

Lead Seal matrix, pointed oval (vesica) in shape and dating to the 13th century. The matrix weighs 10.15g and measures 35.73mm in length, 21.9mm in width and 6.8mm in thickness (including loop). The central motif on the seal matrix is an eight pointed star, possibly representing a Christmas star. The seal has a legend around the outside which reads S'RICARD' B' DV. There is a dot between the two arms of the V implying it is an abbreviation, as is the B. There is no way of knowing exactly what the abbreviation stands for but it is possibly something like 'deo volente' (God willing).

Copper alloy medieval seal matrix dating to the 14th century. The matrix has a round flat face which tapers into a faceted handle with evidence of gilding. There is a small perforation at the top of the handle for suspension. The matrix has a central motif of a man's bearded face in profile with a bird, perhaps a duck, on top of his head. The ducks bill droops down the back of the man's neck. The legend on the seal is quite worn and difficult to decipher; it seems to be set between beaded lines. It appears to read * IE SV SEL D AMOR (I am a seal of love) with the last two letter…

Incomplete cast silver seal matrix of probable eighteenth century date (AD 1700 - AD 1800). Length 12.2mm, width 10.5mm. Weight 1.34g. The die face of the seal is oval. Viewing an impression, the moulded die depicts a human skeleton holding a spear or arrow in the left hand and an hourglass in the right hand. These features are enclosed by a beaded oval line concentric with the oval outer edge. On the reverse is the stub of the broken handle which appears to have been conical rather than faceted. The seal is in good condition and the break is old.
