Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Probably part of a cast copper alloy strap-type box mount. The mount is cast in copper alloy (probably bronze) with a central perforation and what appears to be a tapering terminal or knop but is where the mount has been broken. It is gilded on its upper surface and decorated with four probably white glass, rather than pearl, beads inset into the four corners of the main plate. Microscopic examination suggests that the underside of the mount was not gilded. Length 34mm, width 11mm, thickness 3.5mm, weight 3.9grams. Although it has not been possible to find a close parallel in the arch…

The mount is comparatively small with an overall surviving length of 21.5mm, a maximum width of 10.1mm and a height of 8.5mm. The mount weighs 2.9g. The small size of the mount makes the finer detail of the beast difficult to discern. The beast is sitting with front legs extending forwards and mouth slightly open. The ears are eroded, but appear to have been upright. The back legs are folded against the sides of the body. The rear of the beast has a U-shaped fork; it is possibly broken and may have…

Fragment of copper alloy decorated with a ring and dot motif. All sides are abraded, making it difficult to determine edges from breaks. The piece is broadly rectangular with two wasted opposing edges. There are the remnants of a protrusion at right angles to the sides at one corner. The reverse has no decoration and the fragment is gently convex in profile. There is a possibility the piece is a buckle fragment of ‘simple frame with plate’ form, the protrusion at the corner representing the beginning of the buckle frame and the wasted sides representing both the hole for the pin a…
