Object type: LAMP HANGER
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A roughly cast copper alloy cast triangular hollow openwork 'pyramidal' object 32.56mm in length. The object has a rounded apex loop which sits above a short collar. On each side are three unequal openings. The base is also open and has a rounded loop in each angle, each also pierced with a round hole for attachment. While there are no clear parallels this object can with some confidence be identified as a lamp hanger in view of its similarity to the wide range of three-armed lamp hangers of medieval date.

A post-medieval or modern lead seal. The seal is circular and has a rectangular hole running from side to side through which a cord would have been threaded. Lettering is visible around the perimeter on both sides. Paul Cannon has kindly identified this is a Danish State seed control seal. Around the Danish crown was originally the inscription STATSFRØKONTROLLEN. The other face would originally have read KØBENHAVN.V. Both faces are now extremely difficult to read.

A Medieval cast copper-alloy book fitting (c. 1300-c. 1400 AD). Technically, this is a strap-end and parallels have been published as such in the past (e.g. Ward Perkins 1940: 270, ref. 4). More recently a more precise use as a book-clasp has been suggested (Geake 2001: 61) and such pieces tend to be published as such: e.g. IOW-108BF1 on this database published in the Portable Antiquities Scheme Annual Report 2004/05 (pp. 71-72; ref. 133). The object consists of a rectangular 'box chape' integral with a quatrefoil element from which extends a moulded zoomorphic terminal. The attachment…

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a flat upper surface and an irregular lower surface, with off-centre aperture of diameter 8.3mm.
