A copper-alloy Roman cast zoomorphic mount in the shape of a bird in flight with wings and neck. The mount is unusual in that the tail is wedge shaped with incised line near the end and two moulded ribs. The wings are formed by two elaborate circular indents that may have held enamel in the inner circle. Similar bird-type objects are known from brooches and have been discussed by Hattatt (1987, 227-8), often with flat bodies and spread wings, a triangular tail, a plain neck and head rising high from the plane of the brooch (max. H. here: 6.8mm) and a wide rib along the back and usually…

Cast copper alloy pelta-shaped mount with looped terminal with integral pointed lug that is 4 mm long at the back of the terminal.

Inside this crescent is a pelta-shaped section that still retains some of its red enamel inlay and arcs into a point that almost touches the terminal, creating two areas of crescentic openwork. The object is quite delicate …

Copper alloy possible mount. Cast disc with a bevelled edge on which appear c.30 small juxtaposed cells which retain a dull red colorant. The cells may originally have been rectangular, though some have lost their outer edges to wear. A rough central cut-out suggests from its form the excision of an embedded object or area in the form of a star with eight points. The back bears a short pair of of diameter 2mm and similar length. The finder kindly suggests this to be a Roman plate brooch, but the features rehearsed above do not appear in Mackreth's (2011) corpus, and there is neither a …

Roman or medieval mount, possibly a vessel escutcheon or vessel mount dating from the 1st-15th century. The surviving part of the mount is broken at one end. It was made from cast copper alloy and is slightly bent. The inside/reverse was plain and there are remains of possibly solder suggesting that it was attached to a vessel or box. One side of the mount terminates in a small moulded circle which could have possibly served as the counter-sunk rivet hole for a screw or nail; in that case the small mount will probably date from the post-medieval or early modern period. However, the cr…

Copper alloy and iron mount. A small cast bell-shaped mount with a concave face with central boss; the latter bears a central pit which may suggest the object has been finished on a lather. Rust on end of the cylindrical shank suggests the stub of an iron fixing pin remains embedded. Probably from a box as this is smaller than most examples of this form. The grey tint may suggest the prominent presence of lead or tin in the metal mix. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 15.9mm, Height: 8.9mm, Weight: 6.77gms

An incomplete 'bird' mount of Roman date (c. AD 50 - 300), probably an eagle, possibly a raven or crow. The bird is sub-triangular in plan with protruding neck, and irregular in profile. The bird is stylised and is designed to stand upright with its wings part folded to its body; this would have formed a triangular platform on the back of the bird with the wings meeting on top of the tail, however one of the wings has been lost. The neck and head are outstretched and terminate in an open beak holding an object, possibly a globe or seed. The mount has been decorated with incised 'feathe…
