Lead cloth seal. A cast pair of discs linked by an integrally cast strip, with a hidden lug probably involved in the attachment of one disc to the other. Patinated One side, the larger disc, bears the stamped Roman numerals XIX. The other side bears a lattice pattern; this might be part of a portcullis motif (also known on a Yorkshire seal, appearing on both sides: Egan 1994 page 175, fig. 24 no. 107). Similar lettering appears on a cloth seal also bearing the date 1619 (ibid., page 173, fig. 22 no. 91), and the date of that object may be an apt guide to that of this example. Suggeste…

Lead possible cloth seal. A small pair of discs clamped together, an operation which has left relief detail on either side. On one side an apparently figurative motif may depict a person seated at a task with head bent slightly forward and legs extended. The other side bears a possible voided cross with a prominent pellet in each angle. The definition of motifs on both sides appears poor and untidy, and alternative readings may be equally apt. Patinated overall. The figure may represent a worker at a loom. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1700. Diameter: 15mm, Thickness: 3.1mm, …

Lead possible cloth seal fragment. Fragment from a disc of cast lead bearing the stamped impression of a coiffed female bust left with a finely milled border.

Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1707-1714. Diameter: 15.8mm, Thickness: 0.9mm, Weight: 1.36gms.

Lead cloth seal. A cast pair of discs which are pressed together with a lug connecting them. One side bears indistinct moulded interlace decoration. The other side bears a figure-of-eight shaped hollow, possibly stamped. The original motif is probably the moulded pattern. An initial identification as an Anglo-Scandinavian pendant was kindly corrected by Wendy Scott, who comments: 'Is this not more likely to be a post med cloth seal or similar?'. Indeed it is!

Lead cloth seal fragment. Two fragments of cast lead sheet, both now of sub-triangular form and with the smaller apparently pressed against or through the larger. The former retains the edge of a stamped portcullis motif, which was associated with state functions from the late medieval period onwards. In this case it may be paralleled by alnage seals attached to cloth in various parts of the country up to the reign of Queen Anne (1707-1714). Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1715. Length: 14.1mm, Width: 13.8mm, Thickness: 2.4mm, Weight: 1.89gms.
