Copper alloy possible scabbard chape. A U-shaped sheet metal sleeve, now flattened, with a pierced fixing hole of diameter 1.5mm close to its upper edge. Presumably from the scabbard or sheath of a broad-bladed weapon or tool; the plain finish might suggest this was not a formal dress accessory. A deep crease or dent appears in the base. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1650 Height: 38.5mm, Width: 32.7mm, Thickness (wall): 0.2mm, Weight: 7.49gms

Sheet copper alloy scabbard chape of medieval - post medieval date (c. AD 1400 - 1600). The sheet has been rolled to form a tapering tube cut into three triangular tabs at the bottom and narrowing to form a tapering base. It exhibits one sewing hole for attachment to a leather or textile scabbard. Traces of white metal coating remain. See: Ward Perkins, (1940), page 287, fig. 88, no. 3.

A complete cast copper-alloy early Medieval zoomorphic scabbard chape, dating to c. 5th-/6th-century date. The chape is of Menghin (1983) Class 3b Type Wageningen (page 361), (pers.comm K .Leahy 2019). The chape has a sub-rectangular central plate with sub-oval protrusions on either side. These are positioned half way down the main plate and have openwork decoration. The tip of the plate has a pierced circular protrusion which has the remains of an iron rivet. Under that is a lozenge shaped attachment which narrows slightly to form the main zoomorphic face of the chape. There is colla…

~~Copper alloy sword scabbard chape that consists of rounded lower half with a knop terminal at the base, this section is decorated with a scallop shell design achieved by a series of radiating groves that emanate from a central point. A rectangular panel with a row of four diamond shaped holes forms the top half of the chape, this is separated from the lower section by a transverse ridge. The top edge of the chape is crenelated with four rectangular notches. The sides of the chape are angle backwards and would have a separate sheet plate that was soldered on to the rear.

An incomplete high tin copper-alloy or pewter scabbard chape of late Medieval to early Post Medieval dating (AD 1450 to AD 1550). Description: Only one half of the chape remains, likely the front plate. It has a wide scallop end with a small terminal knop. The grooves and ridges which create the effect of the shell radiate out from a recessed openwork trefoil, with two of the holes parallel towards the upper end. Immediately before the trefoil is a transverse ridge. Above the ridge is a set of three circular holes and then another transverse ridge. The mouth of the chape has a central…

A broken and incomplete copper-alloy scabbard chape of medieval date, missing its side arms which would have been connected to each other via a perforated terminal loop. The fitting is zoomorphic, representing a winged animal in profile, probably a bird, whose head is at the arm end of the base plate. It was formed from a single plate that has been folded in half. The animal's tail is at the bend. The ends of the plate have been riveted together and are in the shape of the animal's head; the rivet survives and appears to have been made of a different alloy. There is a sub-triangular p…

An incomplete, copper alloy dagger scabbard chape of late medieval date or early post-medieval date, about AD 1400 - 1600. It is formed from sheet copper alloy, rolled over to form a narrow, tapering tube. The lower end of the tube has been divided into three, forming triangular tabs which have been folded over to create a closed lower end with a blunt point. Where the ends of the rolled sheet of alloy meet they are overlapped and there is a single, longitudinal seam. This seam has now separated and there are traces of a whitish material beneath, possibly some form of solder. The upper…
