An incomplete Post-Medieval lead alnage cloth seal. The object is a single incomplete disc of an originally two or four-disc seal. It is stamped with a design representing a thistle, composed of raised pellets and surmounted by a crown. The disc is sub-circular in shape retaining much of it's original edge to the left of the design. To the right however, the edge of the disc is missing (about 10-15%) and the breaks are worn and irregular. Above the design is possibly the remnant of a broken connecting strip, by which it was joined to another disc. Alternatively this could be part of th…

An incomplete Post Medieval lead alnage cloth seal. Originally forming part of a four-lobed seal, the surviving fragment consists of just two discs joined together: approximately 70 per cent of disc 3 and 90 per cent of disc 4. The breaks are old and probably caused by the plough. Disc 4 appears to have a tab extending a few millimetres from the edge opposite disc 3. At the other extremity, on disc 3, a remnant of the connecting strip that joined it to disc 2 survives and is slightly crumpled. Disc 3 is stamped with a design which, by comparison with similar seals, might be a thistle …
