A complete copper alloy Stirrup-Strap Mount of Early-Medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian) date (AD 1000-1100). The object is sub-triangular in plan. The top of the mount is rounded and has a circular perforation within the centre of the upper projection. The plate is slightly concave to the front of the plate. The upper perforation is flanked by two knops around the edge of the stirrup-strap mount. From these knops the plate widens to a maximum width of 29.36mm which is marked by a second lower pair of rounded knops. Between the upper and lower knops the plate expands at a point which is equ…

A complete late early-medieval (c. 1000-1100) copper alloy Williams Class A Type 8 stirrup strap mount, with a common right angle flange and traces of niello with white wire inlay decoration. The apex is slightly bent backwards (old damage). The mount is a sub-triangular plate rising to an apex, with small vertical projections at the corner of the base. To the reverse of the base a rectangular angled flange projects backwards at c. 90 degrees to the plane. The decorated face consists of a large zoomorphic head at the apex with looping and bifurcating tendrils on each side, below a hor…

Incomplete and abraded Late Saxon copper alloy stirrup-strap mount with the apex missing. There is no basal flange. Traces of rust lie behind one of the two lower fixing holes. Inlaid off-white material, presumably niello, stands proud of the surface. A crude whiskered animal mask within a frame is depicted. From the basal corners the sides slope inwards to rounded lobes (one larger than the other). The top comprises two concavities flanking a broken stump. The form is slightly reminiscent of William 1997 Class A, Type 5 and of a Class C, Group 2 mount from Buxton-with-Lammas, Norfolk…

An incomplete cast copper alloy stirrup strap mount dating to the late early-medieval (AD850-1100) Anglo-Scandinavian period.

The reverse is plain, but there a decoration with niello inlay on the obverse: a double-circular with cental circlets and radiating lines resembling a windmill. Williams comments that this pat…

Late Saxon copper alloy stirrup-strap mount. There is no flange. Perforation at the apex the upper edge of which is scalloped.

An incomplete Late Early-Medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian)-Medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount (c. 1000-c. 1100 AD). Williams Class A, Type 5. The handle-like projection and the suspension loop are missing due to an old transverse break and part of the flange is missing. The complete stirrup mount would have consisted of a pentagonal, flat frame or body, set within a pair of tendril like shapes, down each diagonal side, which terminated in scrolls. Extending from the apex would have been a long, handle like extension, which would have probably terminated in a zoomorphic head t…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Medieval stirrup strap mount from the late 11th century. It is sub-triangular in shape. There is an integral loop at the top; at approximately the centre of the mount is a pair of off-centred lobes. The interior of the mount is decorated with four downward curving lines of indentations, which were most likely inlaid, now missing; the top three lines of indentations have three each, and the bottom line has four. There is some remaining red niello between the third and last line; this area appears to protrude from the mount, and may be a debased animal he…

A worn and corroded Early Medieval cast copper alloy stirrup mount, c. 1025-1100 AD. The mount has an overall symmetrical tongue shape. At one end it is square and bends away from the front face at 90 degrees to form a narrowed perpendicular flange (Type A Flange). On the front face progressing towards the other end of the mount the initial part is rectangular leading to symmetrical knops, one on either side. The rectangular segment has two equidistant circular holes placed across its width. From the knops the mount widens symmetrically in a scallop shape to two further knops, from wh…

A copper alloy stirrup mount in an Anglo-Scandinavian style, Williams Class A, type 5. It has a subtriangular shape with a drilled hole in the base and at the apex. Traces of niello remain on the surface, though the design is difficult to interpret due to the degree of corrosion, which extends accross the surface of the object. Traces of iron oxide are visible on the underside of the mount on the basal rib. This stirrup mount is probably a Class A Type 5, though David Williams describes a similar mount from Bedfordshire as unclassified but similar to a Type 5 and Type 1 (Late Sa…

A Late Saxon copper alloy stirrup-strap mount of Williams' Class C, Group 1 (1997, 100). Sub-triangular, the lower side edges are straight, with three lobes decreasing in size towards the apex on each upper edge and a straight base. It is broken across the apex loop and one corner is missing, broken across one of the fixing holes. There is an additional piercing below the apex loop, and a small hole has been added next to the lower broken edge to allow the mount to be secured after it was damaged. There is no trace of a flange along the base, but one worn and angled side lug survives.…

From the upper head with its prominent eyes projects a series of looping and bifurcating tendrils which end in lobes. From the lower heads part of the body and a single limb are depicted; a prominent wing ext…

Early Medieval (11th Century) copper alloy stirrup strap mount. It is part of a Class A Type 8 subtriangular mount; the top half is broken and missing. The mount has a right-angled flange that projects like a tab rather than extending across the full width of the base. It is decorated with two beasts. One up each side of the mount, the bodies partly project thus shaping the edge of the mount. The heads of the beasts project beyond each corner of the base. Between the beasts' heads there are the two perforations for attachment. The heads have rounded snouts with flaring nostrils, long …

A late early-medieval stirrup-strap mount of Williams's Class A Type 10B. Made of cast copper alloy, it is sub-triangular in shape. It has a common right angle flange, with the corroded remains of two iron rivets in place. This corrosion has slightly affected the front of the mount. The apex loop is damaged and broken through. The mount is decorated by engraving and openwork and the pattern appears to be an interlaced zoomorphic design. It is worn, so the creature depicted is difficult to make out clearly. The openwork comprises two elongated kidney-shapes in the shoulders of the moun…
