Copper alloy Mount. Cast openwork mount, probably with a zoomorphic design. The flat backed plate bears four integrally cast fixing pins on its back: each pin rose from a rectangular base of about 5mm square with a tapered shank of rectangular section up to 11mm long - one complete pin remains, albeit bent back. The pins are set either side of the back of the central motif, where the mount achieves its greatest height or width. The stout integral pins may suggest this object was attached to thick leather. The design presents an uncertain subject: the centrepiece might be seen as…

A copper alloy mount from a medieval hanging bowl or laver. The mount is in the form of a dog's head and neck. The head resembles 14th/15th century spouts which sometimes show a dog's head at the front. Although quite corroded, one can still see the snout, eyes and ears of the dog. On the back it has a deep circular hollow which was for the attachment of a handle, and the break at the neck is where the head would have been soldered to the side of the vessel. Finds of mounts are not uncommon since the mount represents the laver’s greatest point of weakness and thus is most vulnera…
