Object type: STIRRUP
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Coventry
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy early medieval stirrup strap mount of Williams Class A. The mount is in fairly poor condition and is very worn, with no decoration visible whatsoever. It is pentagonal in shape. It does not have an angled attachment flange, but instead has two circular rivet holes at the base. At the top, at the narrowest part of the mount, there is a further circular rivet hole. The mount has a reddy brown patina with many areas of green copper corrosion. It measures 46.19 mm long, 30.02 mm wide, 4.31 mm thick and weighs 14.8 grams. It is likely to date from the eleventh century AD.

An early medieval stirrup strap mount of Williams Class A Type 1. The mount is pentagonal in form, with concaved projections at the sides. It has a stepped flange which is perforated with two rivet holes, one at either end. The tip of the mount is missing. An engraved border is visible running around the edge of the mount, but other than this very little of the surface decoration survives as it is quite worn. Angled towards the light, some faint traces of a design are apparent, perhaps as silver inlay, but these are far too worn to allow any clear descriptio of the design. The reverse…

A late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (11th century AD). The hollow back would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). This hollow may contain traces of the lead solder by which the terminal appears to have been attached to the stirrup. The terminal has a zoomorphic design with 'hooked nose'. The attachment end is abraded to one side and features a transversely incised line. Below this are two moulded pointed oval eyes with raised lines emerging from their outer corners. The terminal narrows at the hooked terminal. This 'n…

A cast copper-alloy stirrup strap mount of early medieval date, almost certainly 11th century. The mount is sub-trapezoidal and of an openwork design with six internal perforations within the frame. On both sides of the face of the frame, there are four gaping-mouthed beasts and at the top their snouts form part of the outside edge of the frame. At the top between the open mouths of the beasts there is a central circular rivet hole set within a moulded decorative lozenge. At the bottom the mount has an angled flange with two evenly spaced attachment holes. The mount does not fit neatl…

An incomplete copper-alloy stirrup strap mount dating to the eleventh century. The mount is trapezoid in plan with a broken apex. A small tab of metal projects at either lower corner. Both tabs are in the form of an animal head resembling a rabbit. The animal has a worn face but two large oval ears. When the mount is orientated correctly the animal heads are upside down (ie the ears point towards the base of the stirrup). The surface of the mount is decorated with a Scandinavian-type beast-head in niello. The head is seen in profile left when the mount is orientated to 90 degrees clock…

Copper alloy, ferrous staining Stirrup Mount. Cast and slightly curved flat-backed pentagonal plate tapering from a broader oval end to a narrower apex bearing a round hole of diameter 3.9mm. Williams Class A, Type 12.The display surface is decorated with six bosses flanking a central boss, with sunken areas between them. The intention was probably zoomorphic though in its worn condition the present effect is vaguely floral, and might suggest a later Viking Age or Romanesque date. Ferrous staining on the back of the object, at its broader end, show it was attached to iron when lost …

A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount. It is a sub-rectangular shape in plan, however the upper edge is broken and may have a central incomplete rivet hole. The sides are moulded with a pair of integral knops protruding at the lower corners. The broken upper edge is not a recent break. The outer face is decorated with a high-relief simplistic animal who is missing their head due to the break. The lower edge has two rivet holes. The reverse of the mount is undecorated and along the lower edge there is a narrowed central flange. The surface of the mount is abraded and there is not tra…

A Late Early-Medieval (11th century) copper alloy openwork stirrup strap-mount in the Urnes style. It does not fit with a published Williams type, but would probably be included with his Class A. It has iron staining on the reverse, suggesting the missing rivets were of iron. It measures 49.58x40.15x9.83mm and weighs 33.59g. The stirrup strap-mount is triangular in shape with a circular piercing at the top (with a raised concentric rib around). All original patina is missing to the front, but detail is visible in the form of three curlicues on either sloping side. The openwork decor…

A fragment from a cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of late Anglo-Saxon date (c. 11th century AD). The shape and style suggest it is a lower corner fragment of a Williams' Class A, Type 8 zoomorphic mount (see Williams 1997, 48; fig. 32). At the corner is a projecting pointed animal head. Along the side of the mount is the moulded body with a limb/wing emerging from it into the body of the mount at an angle. One of the lower rivet holes remains and displays evidence of iron corrosion. Adjacent to is is the probable side of the second rivet hole; a weak point at which, amongst othe…

A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century date. The mount is sub-pentagonal inform. Due to adhering soil, the exact nature of the decoration is uncertain; however, the design is certainly broadly in line with other examples in this class, consisting of two interwined beasts (see Williams 1997: 29). The outward-angling sides immediately below the apex loop each represent the neck of a downward-facing animal. At the base of each of these sides is a rounded lobe, which represents an ear. Below is the snout, consisting of a deep curve which projects outwards at the ti…

Early Medieval copper alloy Stirrup mount. The object is in fair condition with a dark brown patina and some areas of light green patina. It is 48mm long, 33mm wide, 4mm thick and weighs 16.9g. It is an Anglo-Scandinavian stirrup mount, Class A, type 14 in David Williams' catalogue of Late Saxon Stirrup-Strap Mounts. The object is very similar to examples 348-352 in Williams' catalogue. Interestingly, all these examples are from South-East England so this would represent the most Northerly example recorded. The mount is in the shape of a cross, with a triangular lower half, the …

A worn and incomplete cast copper-alloy zoomorphic stirrup terminal of Early-Medieval/Anglo-Scandinavian date. It is sub-oval in plan and moulded in the form of a stylised animal or beast. The terminal has an incomplete and hollow U-shaped back face that terminates in old breaks. This contains traces of a white solder that would have enabled attachment to the iron arm of the stirrup. From the base of the terminal projects the stylised beast, which has a long neck that curves round to face back up the stirrup, creating a circular aperture. Four flattened and rounded crests run from the…
