A very worn lead alloy discoidal object with circular band, possibly a Medieval or Post Medieval cloth or related seal. The seal itself is discoidal with completely broken and misshapen circumference; it is possible this was originally circular in plan. There seems to be a gap between two symmetrical discs, suggesting perhaps that another element may have passed through this element, such as a chord. The circular band is broken on one end, where it would have connected to the disc; it is generally flat in cross-section with a raised ridge on both inner and outer circumferential edge…

One inner disc from a four-disc lead alnage seal, showing that tax has been paid on the cloth. Stamped with a crown above large numerals reading 1. 1/2, which would have been the tax rate in pence. Issued at some time between 1660 and 1724. Cf. Egan 1994, 184-5.

Lead cloth seal of the Norwich Weavers' Company. Disc 1 is stamped with WOR/STED/REFOR/MED (M and E ligatured). The significance of 'reformed' is unknown. Disc 2 is stamped with what are probably numbers - but not the usual 27, as there appears to be a 9 or a 6 in the centre. Issued from 1650 to 1705. C.f. Egan 1994, nos. 87-90.

Lead cloth seal. Disc 1 is stamped with a rampant lion, probably the 'Belgic' lion of the Netherlands (although the sabre and bundle of arrows that it ought to be holding are off the flan). Disc 2 has a shield with a row of oerhaps six lozenges across the middle (or 'conjoined in fess' in heraldic language). Above the shield are the initials IP. The precise origin of this seal is uncertain; an image has been sent to Geoff Egan at the Museum of London to try to get a better identification. It is evidence for the trade in textiles between East Anglia and the Netherlands in the 16th…

Lead cloth seal, only Disc 1 surviving, stamped with an ornate shield with a broad vertical stripe (a 'pale' in heraldic language), all within a circle. Outside the circle are the remains of a legend - possibly an I and then next to it at the top a cross. Much of the legend is off the flan, as the stamping has been done rather off-centre. This is a foreign seal, but its precise origin is uncertain; an image has been sent to Geoff Egan at the Museum of London to try to get a better identification.

Large lead cloth seal, a privy seal of a clothier, weaver or searcher. Disc 1 is stamped with irregularly set incuse letters or numbers - two 5s or Ss and an I. Disc 2 has an ornate monogram which is now hard to read - it seems to be based on an M or W. It has a rather late, eighteenth-century appearance.

Lead cloth seal, a privy seal of a clothier, weaver or searcher. Disc 1 has an illegible and perhaps rather crude stamp; Disc 2 is stamped with a privy mark made up of a heart-shaped knot with a stem projecting upwards to end in a sub-rectangular shape, with the initial S to the R.

Lead cloth seal of unusual type. One 'disc' is in fact 'spade-shaped' (rectangular with one rounded end) and the other is the conventional circular disc. This type of seal is an official alnage (tax) seal. It is cast with neat Roman numerals on the 'spade-shaped' Disc 1, reading ++II on the top line (nearest the connecting strip) and +VIII on the lower line. Below this Disc 1 appears unstamped, but on close inspection a flattened circular area can be seen indicating an unengraved stamp. On the reverse, Disc 2 is stamped with a privy mark - three pellets with the initials R C A (?…

Lead cloth seal, a privy seal of a clothier, weaver or searcher. Towards the edge of Disc 1 is a stamp which is hard to decipher - perhaps an E or B between two incuse Cs. Disc 2 has a W on its side to the left of large initials I N, with what seems to be a crown above.

Lead disc, possibly from a cloth seal. It has no rivet - so must be the inner disc of a four-part seal - and is stamped with what may be a privy mark of a clothier, weaver or searcher. The mark consists of a long relief arrow across the centre, with a rectangle opposite the point, and pellets or flowers to either side. Four-part seals are usually official alnage (tax) seals, so this identification is uncertain - but the alternative, a lead token, does not seem very persuasive either.

Large lead cloth seal, in good condition but with Disc 2 bent in half. Disc 1 is not stamped, but has scratched numbers: 409 above a line, with what is probably - 311 - (with a short dash to either side) below. Disc 1 is 25 mm in diameter, Disc 2 is 23.5 mm, and the connecting strip is 10 mm long. Similar to Egan 1994, no. 234, which is a clothier's or weaver's or searcher's personal seal. The significance of the numbers is uncertain; as Egan points out, they can hardly refer to the dimensions of the cloth. Post-medieval, 16th or 17th century.

One disc from a lead cloth seal, in very good condition. On one side is the Tudor royal coat of arms with E to one side and R to the other, for Elizabeth I. Above is a crown, and around is a legend. The first part of the legend is illegible but from parallels in Egan 1994 (p. 61) it can be reconstructed as [S' VLII' PA]O' VIALLE' LON. Written out in full this is SIGILLUM ULNAGII PANNORUM VENALIUM LONDINI, i.e. 'seal of alnage [tax] of saleable cloths of London'. The reverse has a rivet with what look like cut marks, as if the seal were cut off the length of cloth. No stamp can be s…
