Object type: SCABBARD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Swansea
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late medieval to early post-medieval lead-tin alloy chape, probably from a dagger scabbard. The cast chape is incomplete, eroded at the mouth (with a length of 27.2mm and a weight of 4.5g). The mouth is somewhat misshapen and would originally have been D-shaped to sub-oval (17.3mm x 13.0mm with a wall thickness of 0.7mm). There is some damage below the mouth, probably incorporating a damaged rivet attachment hole. The surface is corroded masking the decoration but a rib is discernible below the mouth, possibly flanked by grooves above and below. Any other decoration is uncertain, ther…

Object type: RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Carmarthenshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Crudely cast copper alloy ring. The inside of the ring contains several wear facets. External diameter c.25mm, internal diameter c.18mm, weight 5.2 grams. Crudely cast copper alloy rings like this example served numerous functions and can date from at least the medieval period to the early twentieth century. The recent suggestion that they are medieval belt fittings (Bailey 2000, 54-55) while plausible is simply one of many plausible identifications.

Object type: RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Annular ring of copper alloy. This is likely to be a simple annular round (or near round) section buckle frame of Medieval date, probably 13th –15th century. The ring is plain, except for an expanded area with a pair of low lugs and the pin constricting mouldings. The relatively narrow gap or groove between these mouldings would suggest the rings use as a buckle rather than a brooch. The groove seemingly being too slender to seat the stem of a brooch pin. Egan (1991) states that a constriction on a single frame is generally an indication of a brooch rather than a buckle, leaving…

Incomplete cast copper alloy purse bar. The perforated shield-shaped central block is decorated with a lattice pattern on one side and a rudimentary scallop-shell pattern on the other. The side bars are circular in section and gripped by stylised animals' heads at their junction with the central block. The upper surface and sides of the side bars are decorated with a lattice pattern. Microscopic observation suggests that the decorative motifs on both the central block and the side bars are inlaid with niello. The ends of both bars are missing beyond the first perforation of the attachm…

Cast copper alloy purse bar. The moulded sub-spherical terminals of the circular-sectioned bar are embellished with horizontal grooves, while the central sub-rectangular boss is decorated on one side with two presumably engraved oblique grooves which, with the base of the boss, form a triangular panel. One arm of the purse bar is bent upwards about a third of the way along its length. The original form of the swivelling attachment is not certain. At present it does not form the usual loop, but is T-shaped suggesting that the purse bar is possibly a variant from of ward-Perkin's Type B8…

Medieval copper alloy purse frame suspension loop, probably of 15th or 16th century date. The loop is D-shaped with an oval cross section. The sides are decorated with a chevron motif constructed with recessed lines, which possibly originally contained niello. The design is contained by two linear incised lines at the top, within which the loop is plain. The bottom of the loop is decorated with incised vertical lines, coming off the circular moulding before the broken integral axis, which would have been joined to the purse frame.

Late Medieval lead alloy purse bar, c. 15th or 16th century The purse bar is complete with a length of 53.6mm and a weight of 7.1g. The terminals were pointed with a flange before a recess to secure the missing frame. The bars are of sub-rectangular section with attachment plates beneath. The bar widens (to 10.1mm) and thins (to 3.6mm) at the centre to accommodate a perforation (3.0mm diameter), through which the loop would have passed. No decoration is evident on the purse bar. The surface is poorly preserved and has a mid-grey colour.
