Incomplete cast lead alloy cloth seal with a stylised root plant on the obverse with five stems with petals on the obverse, perhaps representing the madder root which was used to dye clothing. The reverse has four circumferential grooves on it in one half and the other half is covered by the other disc and folded strip so is illegible. Egan (1995) illustrates a similar weavers or searchers personal seal with a stylised root plant with five roseate flowers on the obverse and an illegible reverse on page 184, fig.33, no.250, which is dated from the 17th century.
