County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post-Medieval gilded copper alloy openwork mount, probably dating to c. AD 1600-1700. The mount is circular in plan, with a cusped outer edge and openwork voids defining an equal armed cross with a narrower arm in each angle,. The arms of the cross extend slightly beyond the cusped border, whilst a small knop projects from the interstice of the cusps in each angle, in line with the narrower arms. The arms meet at the centre in what is probably a flower or rose, with a central pellet. The overall effect of the mount is a double rose, although it is too abraded to be certain. Two integ…

Copper alloy mount. A leaf with a short stalk cut from sheet metal, with a rivet of diameter 2mm and length c.5mm passing through its centre, domed on the display face and bent behind. The surface of the leaf retains gilding on its display face but the rivet head does not; it is possibly a replacement. Figurative mounts of leafy forms from London are ascribed to the period 1400-1450 (Egan and Pritchard1991, 200-202, figs 126-127), while the gilding may point to a lightly later date. The form might suggest this to represent a maple or holly leaf. Suggested date: Late Medieval to Post-Me…

An incomplete copper alloy decorative mount or fitting of early Medieval date, c. 12th century AD (AD 1100-1200). The object is formed from a sem-circular plate of copper alloy, gilded on the upper surface. The plate has alternating rounded panels of openwork and solid panels decorated with human face-masks. Between the panels are several smaller holes presumably for rivets, two of which survive. These rivets stand proud of the front surface and have been gilded, suggesting that they are decorative rather than functional. Each rivet is cone shaped and terminates with a rounded knop. T…

White metal coin. A greyish scyphate flan with a plain obverse and a concave reverse, with extensive traces of reddish surface plating or gilding on both sides. The gilding of copper alloy flans is more familiar to this reporter, and the white metal core may suggest this to be one of the imitations of ancient coins which are intermittently reported from north-eastern Lincolnshire. The metal is probably a lead alloy. Suggested date: Modern, 1990-2010. Obverse description: Plain, with greater loss of coating. Reverse description: Celticised horse right, with fewer comma-shaped componen…
