Copper alloy harness pendant or heraldic device dating from the 13th or 14th century AD. It is roughly square with a suspension loop at the top, set slightly to one side rather than centrally. It is not is very good condition and was probably not a very successful casting in the first place. The obverse surface retains some gilding in the crevices and around the loop. There was no complicated design on the obverse, but rather just a incised square inside another square, the inner one set at an angle, diagonally to the larger one.
