A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century date. The mount is sub-pentagonal in plan, the base being horizontal, the lower third of the long sides vertical, the upper two thirds converging towards a rounded apex. A zoomorphic head, moulded in high relief, is located at the centre, its lower jaw following the bottom edge of the mount. The head is of bat-like appearance, a pair of large, rounded ears with deeply recessed centres projecting from the top of the head. The highest point is the nose ridge, which is flanked by the two large, sub-oval grooved eyes. At the b…

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy early medieval stirrup strap mount of probable eleventh century date. The mount is of Williams Class A mounts, probably of type 2A, or 8. The very worn and corroded condition of the mount makes more precise identification difficult. It is sub-triangular in shape with a pointed triangular apex. An upper rivet hole, now filled with corrosion, is situated below the triangular apex rather than on it. The mount is very slightly convexed. The flange at the bottom is a common right angled flange, and the two rivet holes are located above the flange on the front plate. Thes…

An incomplete Late Early-Medieval (11th century) copper alloy stirrup strap mount of Williams Class A, Type 5. It is missing part of the apex, broken across the piercing. The stirrup strap-mount has a Type A (Common right angle) flange 8.25mm deep and one of two iron rivets is in situ in the rivet holes just above. The mount measures 42.04x26.56mm and weighs 20.62g. The mount is pentagonal in basic shape and has the engraved decoration on an originally smooth surface. Often surface wear and pitting obstructs much of the decoration, as is the case in this example. A lozenge shape is …

An incomplete cast copper alloy Early Medieval stirrup terminal of the Anglo-Scandinavian period dating to the 11th Century, or possibly slightly later. The zoomorphic terminal is roughly D-shaped in section with a hollow reverse where the stirrup arms would have slotted into the terminal. The terminal depicts a beast's head (possibly in Ringerike art style) having a snout at the bottom (with whiskers?), elongated eyes and rounded projecting ears. The stirrup terminal is worn but in good condition. A number of similar artefacts have been recorded on this database, for example SF-FDAFF…

County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper alloy probable stirrup-strap mount dating from the 11th century. The bottom part of the mount is missing, and it is this end which has the defining features of a stirrup-strap mount, so it's identification is uncertain. It is a triangular object with a worn zoomorphic animal head terminal at the apex. There is a rivet hole beneath this, and then the plate is decorated with niello. The design is unclear; only a pointed oval outline is visible. The break at the bottom is patinated. The reverse is slightly concave but otherwise plain. There is a slight possibility that this is a…

Copper alloy and iron Possible Stirrup Mount fragment. An iron object sheathed in copper alloy. The fragment appears to bear zoomorphic decoration, with a pair of gaps in the copper alloy sheath which may have represented a head with eye or eyes at a terminal, with a spur or collar behind it and the suggestion of banding along a thin body. The style is compatible with Anglo-Scandinavian work, though exactly what the complete object was remains uncertain. The corrosion of the iron appears to have burst the copper alloy around it, splitting the latter along one side. Suggested date: …

A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century date. The mount is sub-pentagonal and bears an elaborate relief-moulded pattern. At the apex is a heavily stylised zoomorphic head, whose pointed-oval eyes are defined by grooves. This head bifurcates at the base, the gap being occupied by a possible second such head, also with a 'V-shaped' base. Each of the two vertical sides is occupied by a downward-facing beast, the heads of which project below the horizontal base. The bodies of these animals are sinuous in appearance. One leg of each animal is clearly portrayed; above…

A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century date. The vertical portion of the artefact consists of an openwork lozenge in which a central saltire divides four lozenge-shaped holes. At the centre of the upper surface is a circular moulding; seven further such mouldings are equally spaced around the mount, including one at each of the two outer points. At the top the lozenge extends into the rounded apex loop with circular perforation. At the base is a right-angled flange which projects backwards and is covered in iron corrosion, presumably from a corroded rivet. The …
