County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy stud. Two components of a press stud fastening, retaining traces of the textile in which both elements were sited in the hollow edges of both. On what was presumably the inner side of the fastening, black paint or lacquer. On the other side there is a stamped four-pointed star motif and extensive gilding traces. The survival of textile fragments points to a recent date; two distinct fabrics appear to be represented though the fastener is presumably from a single garment.

Copper alloy harness pendant. A circular plate with an oval top loop with drilled aperture at right angles to its display plane. The plate bears a relief heater-shield-shaped panel charged with three red chevrons, point uppermost, flanked by long narrow features outside the shield but within the circular field, the flanking features are possibly ermine tails, or perhaps stylised leaves. Gilding appears in the outer zone between shield and the edge of the pendant, and as a spot on the plain flat reverse. The Arms may be those of Clare, an unhelpfully common blazon, though the external f…

Copper alloy probable harness pendant fragment. A cast rectangular plate with the broken stub of a lug, here taken to be for a top loop.

The object is a cast iron doorstop, in the shape of a horse and is Victorian in age. The obverse of the horse faces west, the object has a glass eye which is coloured blue, and has unfortunately sustained some damage but is still recognisable. The object also appeared to once have a black coloured applied patina, which is now missing but can still be seen slightly in places. The horse appears to have slight decoration around its 'harness' and 'saddle' areas, as well as 'hair' on its mane and tail, all this accompanied with the glass eye and previous patina suggests that is was a well d…
