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. The front of the disc appears to show the remains of a raised design consisting of a letter H flanked by a sprig of foliage within a beaded circle, though the design is very worn. The reverse is too worn to discern what the decoration is, if any. The object now remains light grey in colour due to the corrosion process. The overall dimensions are as follows: 17mm in diameter and 4.91g in weight.

A worn post-medieval lead cloth seal. The seal is a four part cloth seal comprising two connected pairs of two discs.The larger pair are joined at the terminal by a thin strip of lead.

An incomplete lead cloth seal of post-medieval date. The seal is of the two disc type joined by an integral central strip and sealed by compressing a central rivet. The joining strip is missing. The front of the seal is unclear due to the openwork disc being largely missing. The reverse depicts a pinecone or thistle device. Thepinecone design indicates the seal will have originated in Augsburg, Germany as the pinecone is the heradlic badge of the city. It is suggested that such seals were attached to fustians, a variety of heavy cloth woven from cotton and chiefly prepared for menswea…
