Copper alloy harness pendant. Cast heater-shield-shaped plate with an oval suspension loop set at right angles to its display plane, its hole blocked. The device appears to be a bird with oval-ended tail perched left, now a recessed cell so probably formerly coloured by enamel. It is uncertain whether a pair of goggle eyes aslant should identify the bird as an owl. Another, less distinct, element of the charge may be at the top right of the shield: possibly three stars or florets. Spots of gilding are retained in the upper parts of the field. Creased. Suggested date: Medieval, 1250-135…

Copper alloy harness pendant. Cast plate in the form of an inverted heater-shaped shield bearing the broad-bordered motif of a coiled beast with its jaws to the right and with its body and limbs convoluted below this, with the open stub of a suspension loop at its apex and set at right angles to the display plane. The display face is gilded. The inversion of the shield separates this from the high medieval class of heraldic pendants, and the archaic form of the creature might even hint at a Saxon or Viking date. The prominent use of gilding and the atypical plate, however, more closely…

County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A single-looped oval shaped copper alloy Medieval buckle, with integral forked spacer and lipped frame with small broken knop. Missing double sheet plates that would have covered the forked spacer and missing the pin. The bottom prongs of the forked spacer are complete and not significantly bent.

An incomplete cast copper-alloy buckle plate dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It is missing most of its rear portion, though the front third to half of the plate is still preserved. The buckle plate is manufactured from a single sheet of copper-alloy folded at its midpoint, with a rectangular cut out section at its front edge flanked by two projecting 'tabs' that originally would have housed the strap-bar of the buckle frame. Directly behind this are two parallel circular-sectioned rivets which secure the two sides of the plate together. The front of the plate demonstrates …
