A copper-alloy stirrup terminal of 11th century date. Several examples of this category of artefact are recorded on the PAS database (see, for example, SF-FEFD92). Williams illustrates a similar example in his Finds Research Group datasheet (No. 24; 1997; fig. 5). The object, which represents one of the two bottom corners of the stirrup, takes the form of a zoomorphic foot. The foot angles upwards from the flat base at an angle of approximately forty-five degrees. Evenly spaced around the rounded outer edge of the foot are three projecting toes. At the top of the outer face is a mou…

Late Saxon cast, copper alloy stirrup terminal. Of zoomorphic design, this terminal would have completely enclosed the diagonal arms at the lower part of a sturrup. It is in the form of a crested animal head which is curled around so that it faces "up the stirrup". There are two small. circular apertures between the underside of the heaed and the body of the terminal. At the top are two raised collars. The crest at the base is decorated with stylised tendrils and lobes. There are two apertures at the side of the terminal where the arm and lower bar of the sturrup would each have emerge…

A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of late Anglo-Saxon date (c. 11th century AD) which can be categorised as a Williams' Class A Type 5 (1997, 40-42). The mount is sub-pentagonal in form, consisting of a broadly pentagonal field surmounted by a pair of tendril-like shapes with scrolled terminals. At the apex the tendrils converge into a moulded zoomorphic head. Emerging from the head are the beginnings of a suspension loop; this is largely broken as is common on such strap mounts (ibid., 42). The head faces upwards are features a pair of heavily punched eyes with a moulded trans…

A cast copper-alloy late early medieval or Anglo-Saxon stirrup strap mount. This example is most similar to Williams Class A, Type 9, although no exact parallel could be found (Williams 1997, 52-3, fig 35). It is of Class A as it is sub-triangular in shape with an apex loop, however it does not have the more common right angle flange but an almost straight one, which curves backwards only slightly. It is most similar to Williams type 9 specifically as mounts in this type all depict human masks, as does this example. The sides are shaped and the mask has pointed oval shaped eyes…

The item is symmetrical in design and decoration. The front design consists of a large eared animal's head with a pointed nose. Below this and to the sides the design is less clear but is comprised of stylised blocks and scroll-work. The re…

County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A stirrup-strap mount of Williams' Class A, Type 5 (though without the long neck which typifies this series (and very similar to no 94 in Willimas 1997)). The face of the mount depicts a pair of Scandinavian-inspired beasts, both with pointed oval eyes, facing down and joined by a single union knot. One of a pair of lower iron rivets remains as well as the edge of the apex rivet hole. This example may retain a silver wire inlay in its decoration, although this is unclear.

A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount from the 11th century (circa 1000-1100). The mount fits into Williams' Class A, Type 1 classification. The mount has the characteristic pentagonal form, it is 46.7mm long, 33.2mm wide and 2.3mm thick at the centre, narrowing to less than 1 mm at some edges. The main plate of the mount is even apart from the engraved decoration on the surface, this decoration is too worn to be distinguished any details. There are three rivet holes, two at the bottom and one at the apex, all 3.7mm in diameter, but there are no rivets remaining. The bottom is worn a…

Cast copper alloy stirrup mount. The mount is roughly 'P' shaped, and has a crested animal head curled up round to face 'up' the stirrup, thereby forming an aperture. The snout of the mount is transversly ribbed and there is a large circular hole in the centre with a smaller one next to it where the head of the animal rests. This terminal closes the stirrup arm completely, and traces of a circular iron frame measuring 4.68mm is visible in the centre of the mount. The snout is D-shaped in cross-section and measures 11.33mm by 9.94mm.

A fragment of a late Anglo-Saxon copper-alloy stirrup strap mount, only the lower terminal with right angled flange now survives. This strap mount is most likely to be of Williams Class A, as it has a right angled flange and appears to have been of sub-triangular form. It is also most likely to be Class A type 12, openwork version (Williams, 1997, 69-73, fig 46). It is most likely to be type 12 as the base has two parallel circular bosses either side of an incomplete probably originally lozenge-shaped openwork hole, such as the openwork holes that lozenge shaped type 12 mounts have…

A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century AD date. This mount is classified as a Williams Class A, Type 12 mount (1997; pp. 69-74). The corroded mount is lozenge-shaped and has an apex loop with small circular aperture at the centre. Arranged around a central knob are four rough lozenge-shaped voids. At the bottom is a right-angle flange which has adhering iron corrosion on the back. Protruding from the top of this iron corrosion is the remnant of a thin copper-alloy sheet - this may originally have covered the entire back of the mount. The head of an iron rivet can …

Cast copper alloy Early Medieval stirrup mount dating to the 11th century (c.1000-1100). The mount is of Class A, Type 7. It is sub triangular in shape with a right-angled flange. The item is symmetrical with pairs of cast-in lugs at the shoulders, base and pointing downwards to either side of the flange. The terminus appears to be a stylised animal head but the object is too corroded to be certain. The front is decorated with a low-relief interlacing design but this too is very corroded. Ferrous corrosion is present both along the flange on the reverse and at the neck where the remai…
