A fragment of post-Medieval lead alloy cloth seal (c. 1600-c. 1800). This single disc has a raised design consisting of a lion passant with 'I' behind, all within a beaded circle. The rear face is plain. There is no indication of a joining strip. Diameter: 11.0mm; thickness: 1.3mm. Weight: 0.67g. Such seals were used to mark the duty due to be paid on bolts of cloth. Heraldic devices such as this are common on Post-Restoration royal seals. Consequently, the seal was probably issued between the reigns of Charles II (1660-1685) and George I (1714-1727) when the alnage system was aboli…

A possible incomplete Post Medieval cloth seal dating from about AD 1500 - 1700. It could be one disc of a rivet type seal of two or four discs that was not fastened by putting the integral rivet through the hole on the opposing disc successfully. It has a stamp impression on one face, but the circular sectioned integral rivet protruding from the other has not been squashed flat, though it does possibly have traces of a stamped design on it, perhaps an A or V. The surviving impression on the main face seems to be a crowned I surrounded by a wreath, all within a beaded border, and outsi…

A large cast lead cloth seal, circular in plan, embossed on one face with a double-headed eagle surmounted by a crown. The seal appears to be a single disc without obvious signs of an attachment for a second disc. The reverse of the disc is unmarked and with no apparent cloth impression. The disc has a slightly raised rim around the edge. The double-headed eagle is the symbol of the Hanseatic Clothworkers Guild, but its use on seals does not necessarily imply that this is a continental seal, according to Egan (1995) p.116. The Hanseatic organisation had outstations in Ipswich and Londo…

Post medieval lead two-disc cloth seal dating to the period c. AD 1525 - 1724. Two circular lead discs connected by a rectangular strip. One disc exhibits a central rivet which has been pushed through the second disc and stamped flat. One disc exhibits traes of a stemped portcullis design. The other disc has been folded back on itself and is now indiscernible. Egan (1985: 9) notes that the portcullis was "the main design for alnage seals in the late Tudor period... and continued in use into the early seventeenth century", however the design does appear to have occured on later seals,…

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).

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…
