Enamelled, shield-shaped horse harness pendant. Type I (Ward Perkins 1940, 118, fig.38). The pendant is cast in copper alloy (probably bronze) with an integral suspension loop, which is now slightly twisted. It is decorated with a heraldic device of a lion rampant possibly with a double tail on a background of blue enamel. Although ancient enamels can change their colour as a consequence of burial, microscopic study shows that blue was the enamels original colour. Microscopic examination also indicated that the unenamelled surfaces of the pendant were probably gilded. Traces of this p…

Fragment of a copper alloy horse harness pendant with an integral suspension loop and curved, sloping shoulders. Only a corroded fragment of the pendant survives and it is not possible to identify its original form with certainty; however, the extant sloping shoulders suggest that it may be an example of a Type V, quatrefoil pendant (Ward Perkins 1940, 118, fig.38). No evidence of decoration survives; however, the pendant is perforated by a sub-rectangular fixing hole c.11mm below the suspension loop suggesting that it may have been embellished with an appliqué mount or stud. Survivin…

Copper alloy, shield-shaped harness pendant with an integrally cast suspension loop and decorated with a bird of prey facing left motif which has been recessed, presumably to take enamel. No trace of the applied enamel apparently survives. The pendant is probably of fourteenth or fifteenth century date. Unfortunately, without knowing the original colours of the applied enamel, it is not possible to identify the heraldic device depicted on the pendant. Identified from a scanned image.

Enamelled, shield-shaped horse harness pendant. Type I (Ward Perkins 1940, 118, fig.38). The pendant is cast in copper alloy (probably bronze) with an integral suspension loop, which is now slightly bent. It is decorated with a heraldic device made up of three chevrons. Although ancient enamels can change their colour as a consequence of burial, microscopic study suggests that the recessed chevrons may have originally been decorated with red enamel. The pendant is corroded and its sinister side is damaged. Height 43mm, width 27mm, thickness 2mm. The study of medieval manuscript illust…

Medieval copper alloy harness pendant probably dating from the late 13th to 14th century. The pendant is shield-shaped and in profile, is slightly convex across the width. The suspension loop is present and, as is usual for the type, is at right angles to the axis of the pendant. The surface of the pendant has been lost, but a series of eight raised horizontal mouldings survive. The mouldings may have been gilt, while the areas between, may have held enamel.

Gilded copper alloy hinged fitting of uncertain date and function, but possibly Medieval. The fitting is composed of two pieces, an attachment plate and a small tongue, which may be eroded and broken. The attachment plate is rectangular with two rivet holes, one of which retains its copper alloy rivet. The plate is hinged to a sub-rectangular plate by an iron pin. The plate is without attachment holes or lugs with the remnants of relief decoration near the top. Both pieces have traces of gilding on the surfaces. It is possible that find represents a small fragment of a Medieval harnes…

Medieval two-piece harness pendant, probably of 14th or 15th century date. The pendant has a central sexfoil swivel. Each of the arms of the central swivel are tear-shaped and meet at the centre. Areas of gilding survive on both the swivel and the frame, but no other surface decoration survives. There is the suggestion of a deliberate red or vermilion coating lying on top of the gilding between the arms of the swivel. The sexfoil frame has slight mouldings between each of the rounded arms. The central swivel is attached to the frame by a circular copper alloy pin below the square ended…

The suspension loop has broken through the attachment hole in antiquity. The rear of the piece is flat and is slightly concave. Cruciform pendants may be connected with clerics, although they may indicate private devotion (Griffiths 1995)

Medieval gilt and enamelled two piece copper alloy harness pendant, probably of 14th or 15th century date. Sexfoil frame with rounded lobes divided by a moulding. The pendant was suspended from a small looped terminal. The inner pendant swivels from a hinge below the suspension loop.

Shield-shaped harness pendant, complete, but the surface has been lost, making it impossible to discern any of the original design. The upper edge is convex, rather than flat, giving the pendant a rounded appearance, differing from the traditional shield-shape. The attachment loop is present and has its axis at right angles to that of the pendant. The perforation is filled with iron corrosion suggesting the pendant was secured to the suspension mount by an iron pin. The reverse of the piece has a black patina with traces of silver surviving in patches, suggesting the pendant may have …
