An incomplete copper alloy post-medieval (c.1600-1800) hooked strap or belt fitting (probably), broken across its loop and missing the reverse section of the object. It is formed from a single piece of copper alloy, roughly an isoceles triangle in shape with a rounded apex, and decorated to the front with moulded decoration (the details of which is difficult to see due to loss of the original surface of the metal) Just beyond halfway along the object, closer to the rounded apex, is a pair of transverse ribs. Worn asymmetrical decoration in the form of raised diagonal lines (perhaps fol…

Medieval copper alloy strap fitting, Length: 24 mm, width: 27 mm, thickness: 7 mm, weight: 9.8 g. The object is part of a two sectioned swivel fitting and consists of a circular cross sectioned D shaped loop. Each of the flat 'corners' of the D shape are formed by an aminal head with an incised line indicating the start of its neck sitting behind a rounded upper head which has a projecting curved muzzle, gripping the end of a circular cross sectioned, oval shaped loop. This and one half of the loops interior is filled with iron corrosion, suggesting that an iron rod once held the …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy post-medieval sword belt fitting dating to c. 1500 - 1700. The fitting is almost complete with the hook missing and erosion damage to the surface of the fitting that has worn away most of the design. Rusted remains of three iron rivets remain in situ on the fitting. The fitting consists of a sub-rectangular plate where a missing hook would have protruded from one end. The plate has a foliate design, with a heart shaped leaf visible at the centre. A narrow border follows the edge of the plate. The reverse side is plain. Two rivet holes are found at the e…

A complete but worn cast copper-alloy post-medieval strap fitting (belt mount) dating from c. AD 1500-1700. The copper alloy strap fitting is a simplistic acorn design. It is sub-oval in plan with one terminal having an integral knop. Bisecting the two halves is a linear groove. The reverse has two circular sectioned integral studs, both of which are incomplete. These studs would pass through the strap leather and hold the fitting in place.

The narrowed section is flanked by a broadened collar. From the narrowed section the ring then broadens and curves to broken terminals.
