Cast copper alloy heraldic shield-shaped horse harness pendant charged with a lion rampant facing left (CORN-248995). The suspension loop at the top of the pendant has broken off, with only the base remaining. There are patches of blue enamel that survive but not enough colour to identify the owner of the arms on this pendant, particularly as the lion rampant was arguably the most common heraldic charge of all in the period of the piece's manufacture (late-13th to mid-14th century). Read (2001) illustrates a similar harness pendant with a charge of a red enamelled lion rampant faci…
