Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Darlington
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete gold mount, possibly of medieval date (AD 1350-1550). The mount is a slightly convex sexfoil in the form of a flower with six petals and circular recessed centre. Each of the "petals" has a hammered pellet at each side and a central incised linear decoration which creates the impression of foliage .The reverse of the mount is slightly concave with a recessed aspect centrally which is the result of a broken projection/spur which would have been used to affix the mount to clothing. A similar example is illustrated in Egan, Dress Accessories, 2002, P 243, no 1297.

An incomplete hollow cast gold finger ring with light blue intaglio of Roman date.

A complete gold finger ring with gemstone of Medieval date. The hoop is narrow, but expands gradually on each side towards the bezel. The bezel is sub-rectangular in shape and each side of the upper face slopes inwards to meet a smaller sub-rectangular fitting that protrudes outwards from the centre, holding a rounded dark red gemstone.

Description: Ball-headed pin head made from gold with filigree wire and pellet decoration. The pin head is hollow and globular, with a circular hole at each end surrounded by an annulet of beaded wire; the upper and lower half are separated by a border of a line of beaded wire either side of what appears now to be a plain wire, but on closer inspection is actually a beaded wire worn down so that the beads have almost disappeared. This triple-strand border probably conceals a soldered join. Both halves are decorated alike, with two-ply twisted wire forming three pairs of opposed S- and…

A fragment of gold, possibly from a bracelet or torc surviving as an undecorated oval/ellipse shaped band that tapers to the shoulders of probable terminals that may have been broken (the breaks are not conclusive).
