Copper alloy stirrup-strap mount. A sub-triangular mount, decorated with the raised imaged of a lion looking upwards, with its right foreleg raised and tail curled above its body, all within a riased outer border. The mane is formed from two rows of irregular indentations. Below the lion, the border is slightly thicker and is pierced with two attachment holes (with traces of iron corrosion around them to the reverse). The reverse of the mount is undecorated and has a central 'common right-angled flange' (Williams 1997, p.25), protruding from the lower edge, which is shorter than the wi…

A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount from the 11th century (circa 1000-1100). The mount appears to fit into Williams' Class A group although it is not directly paralleled in his corpus and does not fit into any of the specific sub-groups. The mount has a straight base and an irregular outline on the sides narrowing to the rounded lobe at the top. The sides follow the outline of the interlaced animal figures moulded on the front. The animal on the right appears clear with knotted legs and body near the base and a long curved neck or body rising up the outer side with what appears to…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Early-Medieval / Anglo-Scandinavian zoomorphic stirrup terminal of probable 11th Century date (950-1150 AD). The terminal is incomplete being worn and broken. A large portion of the iron stirrup survives within the outer decorated copper alloy sheath. In plan the terminal is broadly sub-rectangular (cylindrical); the copper alloy sheath is presumably hollow enclosing the iron arm of the stirrup. The stirrup terminal measures 32.4mm length 11.6mm width is 15.5mm thick and weighs 17.78 grams. The upper face of the stirrup terminal has a moulded zoom…

Cast copper alloy stirrup-strap mount of Williams' Class B, no group (but similar to Groups 1-3). The object is trapezoidal in plan with a central facing animal head and two tiers of apertures. It is decorated with seven openwork perforations. At the base of the flange is a rounded projection possibly meant to be another animal head. The angled flange has two rivet holes containing the remains of corroded iron rivets. On the sides of the object are rounded projections which probably are intended as a pair of animal heads in profile with prominent snout, brow and scrolling crest. The ob…

A cast copper alloy late Anglo-Saxon stirrup strap mount of Williams Class A, Type 4, dating to the 11th Century. The mount is incomplete but what remains is sub-triangular and is symmetrical in design in the vertical plane and has two rivet holes at the base above the right-angled reverse flange. The design on the stirrup mount consists of joint spirals and scroll type designs and may have contained niello decoration. Cf. Williams (1997, 40; ref. 81); one of the more elaborate examples of this type with clear animal heads around the rivet holes.

Cast copper alloy stirrup strap mount, lozenge-shaped in plan, with circular terminal and saltire cross dividing four lozenges within. There is evidence of enamelling within these recessed lozenges, but the piece has been cleaned and lacquered, so it is difficult to assess. There is a projecting circular boss at the centre of the cross, but none at any of the junctions. There are two rivet holes at either end of the mount, both with copper alloy rivets still intact. The rivet at the curved fixing hole end is still attached to a fragment of copper alloy plate which would have been fixed…
