Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy looped strap mount of post-Medieval date. The piece comprises a sub-rectangular plate with inward-bowing horizontal sides, a scalloped right-hand end and two tabs at the left-hand end. A moulded foliate pattern decorates the upper surface, punctuated by two rivet holes, the right-hand one of which retains the in situ remains of a corroded iron rivet. The sub-circular loop projects from the bottom right-hand corner of the plate. This piece is almost certainly a sword-belt fitting, and a scabbard hook would have been contained within the mount's loop.

County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-Medieval copper-alloy strap mount. The piece is of flat section and broadly T-shaped in plan, the vertical stem curving outward on either side at the top, becoming two outward-facing zoomorphic heads with gaping mouths. At the top, located centrally, is part of a countersunk rivet hole. A short distance up from the base, the vertcal arm of the 'T' is crossed at 90 degrees by an upward curving bar. This is almost certainly part of a sword-belt fitting for the attachment of a scabbard. The reverse displays traces of solder, indicating it was once attached to another metal element.
