Copper alloy stud. Cast shield shaped mount with a central integrally cast fixing pin of diameter 3.3mm and length 6.5mm, slightly bent at its end. The shield bears the blazon of an heraldic beast rampant facing left; probably a lion, though a narrow head admits the possibility of a gryphon. The figure would be viewed against a field of dark enamel of a dull brick red under photographic lights, though of uncertain tint by daylight. The pin suggests the object was fixed to a leather strap. Suggested date: Medieval, 1250-1350. Height: 16.9mm, Width: 12.8mm, Thickness (clear of pin): 1.3…

Copper alloy probable vessel fragment. Cast mount in the form of a seated or swimming bird with a hollow base, in this aspect closely resembling the series of plate brooches formed as ducks or chickens (Mackreth 2011, vol. 2 plate 126). However, the casting is heavier than for a brooch and there is no indication of pin gear having ever been present. The wings bear a series of converging diagonally incised closely spaced lines, which again is a feature distinct from the repertoire of shaped cells filled with enamel on the duck brooches. The mount is of an elongated lozenge form with a h…
