A Post-Medieval lead cloth seal, probably issued during the reign of James I to William II (AD 1603-1702). The seal comprises to circular discs joined by a tab at one edge. The opposite edge on both discs is incomplete, indicating that this was possibly a four-disc seal. One disc is decorated with a crowned thistle. The other disc is worn, but an unclear curved line is visible. Compare SOM-166D1D and SUR-17B384 Although no direct parallel has been idenitfied for this seal, the crowned thistle frequently appeared on alnage seals in this period, see for example Egan (1994: 178, no. 141).

A worn and incomplete lead cloth seal dating to the late Medieval or early Post Medieval period (c. AD 1485 -1700). The top of the disc has broken away making the seal sub-square/diamond in shape.

It is suggested that such seals were attached to fustians, a variety of heavy cloth woven from cotton and chiefly prepared for mens…
