Record ID: SF9177
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object made from copper alloy. It is basically 5 mm square in cross-section, although the corners have been cut off leaving narrow facets. Two of the facets have fine transverse lines across them. One end is cut off at a slight angle, leaving a lip on one edge as if the cutting instrument were lifted off too quickly. The other end isa stubby cone. The object appears complete, but is only 15 mm long, so although it looks like a pencil it is rather short for this purpose. It is well made, and now has an even dark brown patina. Date and function unknown.

Object type: BALANCE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
One arm and fragment of beam from a folding balance. The arm is broken at its pierced tip; the surviving length is 38 mm and the maximum width of the arm is just 4 mm. There is a pair of ridges just before the pierced tip, and the opposite end is flattened to accommodate the beam as it folds. The beam fragment is attached by a single swivelling peg or rivet; both ends of the beam are broken. The construction of the arm is interesting; along one long edge there are voids showing that it was made either of two pieces, or of a single piece folded, and incompletely hammered together. F…

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small key made from folded copper-alloy sheet. Most of the bow is missing, but the surviving fragment of perforation shows that this was circular and that the bow was made from a single thickness of sheet. The sheet had to be fairly wide to accommodate the bow, and the stem is made from folding the sheet's width in on itself from the bow end to form a tapering shape. The uncut bit is simply made from two wider thicknesses of the sheet, with a gap at the fold to produce a pierced tip. Surviving length 27 mm, width (length of bit) 10 mm, thickness 3 mm. Dating such a simple key is t…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Three-dimensional human head made from copper-alloy, from a Limoges-style crucifix. The head is rounded, but the neck is flat and cut off at an angle; the casting appears to be complete, but may have been cut down at some time as there is no means of attachment surviving. There is a faint line around the top of the head, which may represent the hair; there is no halo, nor any rivet hole for attaching one. The nose is fairly flat, with a groove on either side running down to the ends of a straight mouth. The eyes are small, circular and deeply drilled, to take inlaid glass beads wh…

Object type: PIN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gilded silver pin with hollow spherical filigree-decorated head. The head is now incomplete, but can be seen to have been made in two halves with a horizontal soldered seam. The diameter at the seam is 7 mm. Each half is decorated with three pellets, each set within a collar of beaded wire and then surrounded by an outer circle of beaded wire. In between these circles are further single pellets. At the very top there would probably have been another pellet, and in the centre of the lower half the shaft emerges. Most of the top half is missing (fresh breaks), showing that the sha…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Flat circular copper-alloy seal matrix, 17 mm in diameter, with a raised rib on the reverse ending in a pierced D-shaped lug at the top. The central motif is a lamb and flag (the Agnus Dei or Lamb of God); the lamb is looking back over its shoulder and one of its front legs is bent under the body. The flagpole extends up into the inscription where it is crossed to form the initial cross. The inscription around the outside reads ECCE AGNVS DEI (Behold the Lamb of God). This is quite a common 14th-century seal matrix design.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
End-cap from a knife handle. It is just a rectangular piece of thick copper-alloy sheet with a rectangular hole set centrally to accommodate a rivet, and it curves more strongly than usual; but this simple object would have been set over the curved end of the knife handle and given a substantial iron rivet with a decorative pyramidal head to provide a neat finish. Usually these end-caps taper slightly to mirror the wedge-shaped cross-section of the handle, but although the edges are corroded this one does not appear to taper. 14th century.

End-cap from a knife, made from thin copper-alloy sheet. It was originally drop-shaped in cross-section, and this is the shape of the plate at the far end of the knife, but the sides which extend part of the way down the handle are now bent and distorted. The end measures 23 x 14.5 mm and has a central hole, probably for a rivet. It is decorated with fine engraving which has now almost corroded away. A border can be seen, and two zones of oblique lines, with curvilinear engraving in between. There is engraving in similar condition on the sides of the end-cap, which appear to consi…

Object type: BELL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small bell made from copper-alloy sheet. At the top is a suspension loop, then after a short solid narrowed neck the sheet is bent around to form a long conical body. The end is cut into four points which are bent inwards to retain the pea. When the bell is held with the suspension hole running from side to side (as if strung on a necklace) the seam falls at the reverse and the front is gilded and decorated with five neat transverse grooves. The grooves definitely do not extend around the back of the bell and the gilding appears not to either. This bell would have been worn on a sa…

Long narrow bar-mount made from copper alloy, with the remains of a loop at one end. The bar-mount is 6 mm wide, and is D-shaped in cross-section with a flange down either long edge. The flanges appear to have worn beaded decoration. There is a rivet hole at either end, and beyond one of these is a narrowed bent-under projection which was probably originally a suspension loop or hook. Length of the bar-mount without projection, 32 mm; total length, 35 mm.

Bar-mount with pendent loop, both made from copper alloy. The bar-mount is 4 mm wide, with a narrower lower end which was originally bent around the pendent loop and secured by a rivet at the lower end of the mount. It is now broken at the bend. The mount is also broken at an upper rivet hole; its surviving length is 18 mm. The pendent loop is a quatrefoil with one foil having a constriction around which the bar-mount is bent. It measures 12.5 x 12.5 mm. The total combined length is 29 mm. A similar example is illustrated in Egan and Pritchard 1991, no. 1189, from a late 14th-c…

Copper-alloy mount made from a piece of strip folded in half to form a basically rectangular shape. The attachment edge on the front is decoratively if crudely shaped, with a wide V-shaped cut-out in the centre and a narrower one to either side. The back plate is cut straight across. Below this is a single off-centre copper-alloy rivet, now rather corroded. Then comes a more central circular hole in both front and back plates, 3 mm in diameter; this is probably decorative, but could have served to reinforce a pin hole. At the fold, each corner has a large rectangular cut-out and th…

Flat rectangular copper-alloy mount measuring 29 x 15 mm, with a central hole measuring 5 mm in diameter. It is in excellent condition, with a highly polished front; this has bevelled edges and is decorated with a border of rocker-arm engraving around a saltire of similar rocker-arm which is cut by the hole. There is a separate copper-alloy rivet in the centre of each short edge; the rivets are 4 mm long. This mount may be purely decorative, or it may have served to reinforce the holes for the pin.
