A very small cast copper-alloy hanging bowl mount or escutcheon of the middle Anglo-Saxon period. The mount is generally ovoid in plan, but has an appendage on each side. The suspension hook at the top, now distorted, is unusual in projecting from the front of the plate, rather than from the top edge, and is possibly a makeshift contemporary repair. The front of the mount has a raised rim around the edge, and might originally have been decorated and inlaid with enamel, but no traces of either are discernible on the image. The back, which would have been attached to the vessel, is plain with traces of solder noted by the recorder.
