A complete cast copper-alloy bar mount dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It has a domed circular central body, from the upper and lower edges of which project plano-convex sectioned arms that terminate in rounded lobes. Each lobe has a small circular aperture at its midpoint, which in both cases here retains the remains of the copper-alloy rivets which originally would have attached it to a leather strap or belt. The central body is decorated on its upper surface with crosshatched motifs, some of which appear to have worn away. Preserved in good condition with an even green …
