A leaf shaped Anglo-Saxon strap end c. 800 - 900 AD. The central decorative panel has a quadruped animal in a kneeling position with what may be a second animal astride the lower. The animal head terminal is well defined, and there is an incised 'C' shape at connecting terminal end, with a two-hole fixing. The reverse has numerous striations, possible from slight casting flaws and the surface has a mid-green patina. Possibly Class B, as described in A Survey of Late Anglo-Saxon and Viking-Age Strap-Ends from Britain - by Gabor Thomas.

An almost complete Early Medieval copper alloy strap end of Class A Type 2, dating from c. AD 750-1100. The strap end is sub triangular in shape, with convex sides which taper down to a narrow terminal rounded point. At the split attachment end are two circular holes on both plates, the reverse plate is worn and broken, and missing one of the rivet holes, only part of one remains. Around the holes is iron staining, one of the holes is completely filled by it, however the rivets are now missing. Below the split the strap end is decorated with incised lines. There is a central line of an…

An incomplete and damaged cast copper-alloy composite strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. Composed of two plates and an internal spacer riveted together at their terminal and upper edge by means of two circular-sectioned copper-alloy rivets, the strap end now is missing part of one plate and has partially come apart due to old damage. In plan each plate has a broadly rectangular upper section which waists abruptly at its base before terminating in a stylised fleur de lis. No decoration is visible on the strap end, excepting for a quatrefoil-shaped cutout section at i…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy composite sheet metal strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It is formed of two outer sheet metal plates that 'sandwich' an internal spacer, the two plates connected by the means of two circular-sectioned copper-alloy rivets. Sub-rectangular in plan, the strap end demonstrates sides which taper in slightly along their length before converging in a projecting terminal knop. Part of one plate is missing in old damage, though otherwise the object survives intact. Preserved in fair condition with a somewhat coarse greenish patina, it measure…

Medieval copper alloy composite strap end. The strap end is formed by two sheets of copper alloy riveted by a copper alloy rivet at both ends, with a third spacer element sandwiched inbetween. The strap end is sub-rectangular but tapers slightly along it's length to an abrupt trefoil terminal. The plate is decorated on one side only by two lines of rocker-arm work running obliquely across the width. A very small piece of leather was originally retained within the gap between the copper sheets but this has now become dislodged and disintegrated. Circa AD1250-1400.

~~This is a 9th century copper alloy strap end that has an animal facemask on the forward edge. There is a slot at the rear edge whereby the strap would be inserted and riveted into place; there are two copper alloy rivets are still in place. The design on the main plate is a geometric style of two opposing arches that converge in the centre forming a double saltire. Each arch is made from a double parallel line that is interspersed with short transverse lines creating a series of small squares. The sections either side of the arches and at either end are infilled with a series of lin…

Fragment of a late Saxon or Anglo Scandinavian latticed openwork artefact. The piece is too small to be fully diagnostic but is most probably a fragment of strap end, mount, hasp or similar. An area of corroded raised wire-like protrusions on the back may be suggestive of a means of attachment. Circa AD850-1100.
