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 width, …

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 is…

A worn and incomplete copper alloy heraldic horse harness banner dating to the medieval period. The banner is in the form of a flag, with the hollow 'flag-pole' enabling the banner to be mounted on a rod and swivel freely. The banner has an heraldic device on either face, apparently the same on both faces. The blazon is very worn but is identifiable on the reverse of the banner, where the device is in sinister. However turned back the correct way and the blazon is Azure, a bend cotised or between six lion rampants, probably the arms of Humphrey de Bohun, 3rd Earl of Hereford (c. 1249 …

A complete copper-alloy Medieval Heraldic shield-shaped harness pendant with a concave back, probably from being bent. The suspension loop is oval and flat with a central circular hole and set at right angles to the plane of the pendant. The front face of the shield bears the armorial device.

A Medieval copper alloy horse harness pendant. The item is shield shaped in plan. The front face has a slightly raised surface which possibly depicts a lion rampant. The reverse face is plain. There are no traces of enamel on the surface. The top narrows to a short point- this presumably was the attachment loop for suspension but it has now partially broken away and is worn. This harness pendant is particularly small in comparisson to other pendants, and it is possible that this was used for on a smaller animal rather than a horse (Brian Read, pers comm).
