An incomplete and rather damaged lead-alloy cloth seal of Post-Medieval date, c. 1550-1700. The cloth seal is of the two disc type, originally connected by means of a central stud, though now only the midpoints of each disc survive. The outer disc has been stamped with the Royal Arms (three lis and three lions opposed quarterly), flanked by a cipher- though only the 'R' survives and subsequently the monarch under whose authority this cloth seal was issued cannot be identified. However based on style, it is likely to be Elizabeth I or Charles I. Preserved in rather poor condition with a…

A fragment of a post-medieval lead-alloy cloth seal probably dating 1600-1700. Only a portion of one disc remains, with half of it broken off so it is now more semi-circular in shape. It still has a slight protrusion opposite the broken edge where the integral connecting stud would have originally been sited. Perpendicular to this protrusion is a letter 'V' stamped into the metal. There is no other design and the surface is smooth. The back is rough so may have had a design which has now been worn away. It seems to have been manufactured somewhat irregularly, being much thicker at the…

A complete cast lead-alloy cloth seal probably dating to the 17th century, perhaps 1676. It is formed of two matched pairs of circular discs, folded over via a sub-rectangular connecting strip and secured to each other at the lowermost of the two pairs by an integral circular-sectioned stud which perforates the opposing disc. The upper disc is ornately decorated; on one face the alpho-numerical inscription **/DOZEN/*76* (with the numerals 76 probably referring to the date) can be seen, while on the opposing face the arms of the Quilter family (Argent, a black bend between three Martle…

A complete lead post-medieval cloth seal. It is formed from two discs of lead joined to one side, with an integral loop extending from the outer edge of one disc. This loop is now damaged and mis-shapen. On face bears a lion rampant with an indistinct letter to one side and the other the arms of Stuart Britain. The coat of arms of Stuart Britain can be seen on an example in the collections of the British Museum (Egan, 1995, no.123). It is likely to date to the reign of James I or Charles I.

A complete lead post-medieval cloth seal. It consists of two discs linked together with a strip of metal to one side. On one face there is the moulded design of a rose and on the other a female bust left with the lettering "[...]BRI[...]GINA" around it. It is hevaily worn and corroded and slightly bent out of shape. The female bust and legend are very similar to those seen on an example from excavations in London, which bears the bust of Queen Anne on on side surrounded by the legend "MAG BRI [REGINA]". A date range of c.AD 1702-14 can therefore be suggested. Length: 19.61mm, w…
