County: Oxfordshire

An incomplete cast copper alloy annular brooch of medieval date. The brooch frame is typologically annular however the six sides are incurved or concaved, so the brooch is better described as having an openwork hexagonal frame. Five sides of the brooch frame are decorated simply with two or three transverse incised lines; the sixth side has the constriction for the pin, which is now absent. The reverse side of the brooch is flat, plain and undecorated. A similar annular brooch is illustrated by Read 2001,no 811, p.110, while a number of similar brooches have been recorded with the PAS

An incomplete Medieval copper-alloy shield-shaped heraldic harness pendant (c. 1200-c. 1400). The pendant is of the 'heater' shield shape with a flat top and sides which curve steeply to a point. From the top edge a suspension loop protrudes centrally at 90° to the pendant; it is angled forwards in an oval pierced loop, now worn through. The front design is unclear due to corrosion. However, there is possibly a label of three points at the top. There are patches of decayed red enamel within the labels and elsewhere. The labels appear to be surrounded by blue enamel. The greenish met…

Copper alloy buckle. Cast single looped or D-shaped buckle with an expanded outer edge and a knop at either end of a narrowed strap bar. The stub of a sheet metal pin is wrapped around the strap bar, and a cast metal roller is clenched, probably immovably so, around the outer edge. Spots of gilding appear on the back of the frame only; the whole object bears bright bronze disease perhaps arising from an extremely unsympathetic local burial environment. Suggested date: Medieval, 1250-1400. Length: 15.9mm, Height: 20.9mm, Thickness (at roller): 5.0mm, Weight: 2.53gms.
