A Medieval cast and enamelled copper-alloy horse-harness pendant, dating from c.1250-1400. The loop is broken which was probably the reason for its original loss. The shield is 'heater-shaped', i.e. with a straight flat top and curved sides meeting at the base in a point. There is much remaining enamel (though the original colour has altered with age) and patches of gilding. The rest of the pendant has a predominantly green patina. A motif of a lion rampant with a forked tail, apparently black, can be seen on a gilded background. It measures 38.01mm long, including the loop x 24.48mm …

A copper alloy heraldic shield-shaped horse harness pendant charged with a lion rampant facing left, surviving in dark blue enamel. This upper face of the pendant is corroded so that it is hard to tell the colour of the lion surface, the field behind the lion provides a contrast to see the lion. The surface may also have been gilded but there is no evidence of this. The reverse of the object is undecorated. The suspension loop is broken missing due to an ancient break.

A complete copper alloy medieval harness pendant, dating to the period AD 1250-1400. The pendant is quatrefoil in shape, with angular projections and an intact suspension loop at the top. This would have been attached to a mount via an iron pin (Griffiths 1995, 61). The enamel is still intact in places, with red enclosing patches of blue in the centre. This is likely to represent a lion rampant azure on a field of gules. The pendant has a brown patina, with green patches, and the edges are a little worn. The reverse is plain. The pendant measures 46.72mm in length, 33.80mm in wi…

Cast copper alloy heraldic shield-shaped horse harness pendant charged with a lion rampant facing left, surviving in dark red enamel. This upper face of the pendant is corroded so that it is hard to tell the colour of the background surface, or field, behind the lion, to provide a contrast to the red lion. The surface may also have been gilded but there is no evidence of this and instead tiny fragments of shell attached to the corrosion product which suggests that the pendant was in the sea at some point. The suspension loop is complete and circular in profile, with an aperture that i…
