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.

Lead cloth seal. Milled lead seal comprising a pair of discs of diameter 14mm linked by a sprue with an oval plate attached to one of the discs passing through a hole in the other.

Lead cloth seal fragment. Cast disc with stamped motif within a granulated outer circle. The motif is a lion rampant with a short vertical bar below its left or lower paw; kindly identified by Paul Cannon as the numeral 1, standing for one penny duty paid.. Though associated with the Low Countries, the lion rampant appears more widely as a device on cloth seals. Paul kindly adds: 'I think this is a single disc from a four-part cloth seal. For a parallel see http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=21702 From this the object beneath the lion's paw is the numeral 1, for 1 penc…

Lead cloth seal. A pair of cast discs joined by sprue which have been clenched together. The larger disc bears the Roman numeral XII. This may indicate a cloth of 12 yards length, or may indicate the weight of a cloth. There are no other indications that the seal represents official inspection. The use of Roman numerals to denote length or weight is known from seals of later 16th to 17th-century date (Egan, G. et al, 1994; Lead Cloth Seals and Related Items in the British Museum, London, [British Museum] Department of Medieval and Later Antiquities Occasional Paper no. 93, page 89). …
