An incomplete copper alloy decorative mount or fitting of early Medieval date, c. 12th century AD (AD 1100-1200). The object is formed from a sem-circular plate of copper alloy, gilded on the upper surface. The plate has alternating rounded panels of openwork and solid panels decorated with human face-masks. Between the panels are several smaller holes presumably for rivets, two of which survive. These rivets stand proud of the front surface and have been gilded, suggesting that they are decorative rather than functional. Each rivet is cone shaped and terminates with a rounded knop.…

An incomplete medieval copper-alloy bar mount (strap-fitting). The strap fitting consists of a sub-rectangular sheet of copper alloy, tapering into a narrow strip at the bottom, which curves backwards to form a hook, but has seemingly lost its terminal through which a rivet would have travelled for attachment. The bar is flat and is perforated with two rivet holes, one at each narrow end. The hook appears to have been twisted slightly. On the front of the fitting the long edges are very slightly recessed and decorated with finely incised wrigglework. The reverse is smooth and flat …

Medieval copper alloy bolt and spring mechanism from a barb-spring padlock. It consists of the majority of a swivel loop and three arms.

A fragmentary copper-alloy object of medieval date, probably a mount or binding strip (c. 12th-13th century). It consists of a length of strip of D-shaped cross-section interrupted by an open ring. The front of the strip is decorated with moulded transverse grooves which creates ridged decoration; the ring is plain. The ring is located off centre on the strip suggesting that it is a broken fragment, though the breaks are old as each end is smooth. The object has a dark-green patina over red-brown metal. The object is 48.5 mm long, 13.1 mm wide at the ring, up to 4.8 mm wide at t…

A fragment from a copper-alloy single-looped oval buckle frame (c. 14th century). It consists of half of the outer edge and the side which extends from it. It has an enlarged outer edge which is flat; this narrows gradually as it curves and develops into the side. The outer edge had a transverse groove at its centre which acted as a pin rest. The frame has broken at this weak point where the outer edge is thinned. Although the buckle was presumably snapped when it broke the breaks are now smooth. A field is delineated on the front of the frame by an engraved border which follows the e…

A broken and incomplete late medieval copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame (c. 15th century). It was formed of two oval-shaped loops, though one is now broken through its sides resulting in the loss of the outer edge. The extent outer edge has three moulded lobes separated by two indentations; it is also angled out in a curve. No decoration is visible on the lobes, but their effect is a castellated one. This design is typically associated with medieval rectangular frames, as illustrated by Egan and Pritchard (1991, 98, fig. 62, no. 443). The sides are bevelled both internally and e…

A fragment of a post-Medieval copper-alloy barrel tap (c. 1700-c. 1850). This fragment is part of the spout with an integral projection.
