Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire

Complete copper-alloy post-medieval or modern chape or lace-tag (c. 1600 - 1800 AD) with two copper-alloy rivets. The chape is cylindrical in plan and tapers towards a turned knob at the base. The chape is formed from a rolled copper-alloy sheet with a straight seam faintly visible along the edge. The chape is badly dented and this has resulted in a flattened aspect. There is a copper-alloy rivet positioned central at the wide end of the cylindrical body, and another smaller copper-alloy rivet at the very edge. The hollow interior of the chape is filled with organic material as a resul…

A copper-alloy incomplete pin or possibly lace chape / lace tag of uncertain date. This artefact weighs 0.41g and has a length of 33.0mm. The object has a circular cross-section with diameter of 2.2mmm, at the transverse worn break, and tapers to a point. The shaft has a bend approximately two thirds of the way towards the tip. A 'U' shaped notch is present, representing missing metal, from the shaft at the location of the change of angle. It is uncertain whether this is later damage or an error during initial production. A lateral mark in the side of the shaft starting at the worn bre…

A copper alloy lace tag or chape probably of Medieval date, AD 1200 - 1400. It is constructed from sheet copper alloy rolled into a narrow tube. The tag is very well made and no seam is visible. It is decorated with a series of alternating broad and narrow circumferential grooves separated by narrow ridges. Two of these ridges, at the mid point of the tag, are further decorated with small, angled notches, giving a ropework effect. The tag has suffered some damage at the open end and corrosion at the closed end; the method of fastening or type of closure cannot be determined. The tag h…

County: Lincolnshire

Copper alloy possible scabbard chape. A long tapering conical sheet metal object with a longitudinal butted seam. The narrow end bears a series of closely-spaced circumferential grooves. The finder kindly suggests an identification as a lace end of similar date. If from a scabbard, this would be for an implement with a narrow pointed blade; if a lace end it would be for an unusually thick and substantial cord. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1650. Length: 45.1mm, Diameter: 8.6mm, Thickness (sheet): 0.4mm, Weight (with some trapped soil): 2.45gms.

A late Medieval possible copper alloy scabbard chape dating from about AD 1300 - 1500. This object is a tube with a rounded tip. It was produced from a sheet of metal rolled and soldered at an overlapping join; the bottom edges were cut into four tabs and folded in to seal the tip. The top has a square edge and there are two circular holes to attach the chape to the scabbard. Some doubt is cast on the identification by the straight sides of the chape and the narrowness which seem to make it too narrow for most knives or daggers. Alternatievly, it could be a lace chape (though it is…

A medieval copper-alloy chape. It is formed by a single sheet of rolled copper-alloy. There are no rivet holes, and the surface is undecorated. It has suffered damage and is now bent in middle. Original length would have been circa 75mm. It is circa 5mm at the opening, and tapers to 3.5mm at the terminal. According to Egan and Pritchard (2002, p.282), the length of the object (over 40mm) means that its function is uncertain, whereas similar objects less than 40mm in length are certainly lace chapes.
