Lead alloy mount, as kindly identified by the finder. Cast concavo-convex plate approaching a cruciform shape with Neoclassical moulded ornament. At the centre is a framed Gorgon mask, with S-shaped curls and scrolls above, below, and to either side. These details appear against a finely vertically lined field which itself is limited by a heavily moulded border. The back bears a finely moulded lattice of rhomboids with small pellets at their meeting points, and with the stubs of two more substantial fixing lugs. The finer detail was perhaps intended to serve as keying. The curvature of…

A late medieval cast copper-alloy trilobate bar mount probably circa 1350-1450. The central lobe is domed on the front and cast concave on the reverse. It is decorated by five transverse parallel grooves. The terminal lobes on each end are similar to the central lobe design with a central fixing aperture, but much smaller. One c/a fixing rivet remains. Probably used as strap or belt decoration or stiffener. Relatively ubiquitous type and a number are shown on the PAS database with comparisons illustrated by Read (2001: 23) no.149-150 and Egan and Pritchard (1991, 213-214) nos.1160-1161.

An incomplete coppper alloy mount of probable late medieval date, c. AD 1200-1500. The mount is cast, rectangular in plan and flat in cross section, terminating in a large knop at one end and in a worn break at the other.

Dimensions: length 35.3mm; width 11.4mm; thickness 3.2mm; weight 3.57g.

A complete Medieval copper-alloy 'bar' mount with terminal and central lobes c. 1200-1300 AD. Description: The central lobe has a circular perforation 3.3mmin diameter.
