Heraldic Shield Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/post-medieval-to-modern/mounts/belt-strap-furniture-and-miscellaneous-mounts/heraldic-shield-mount-54293.html Sun, 24 Feb 2019 21:18:37 GMT Belt, strap, furniture and miscellaneous mounts Heraldic Shield Mount  
Description: A small silver-plated copper-alloy mount. The mount is in the form of a heraldic shield surmounted by a viscount's coronet. The shield is horizontally grained, indicating an azure (blue) field, which, along with the silver (argent) finish, would suggest that the intended heraldic blazon is: On a shield azure three fleurs-de-lis argent. A small discoloured patch on the plain back of the mount is probably solder, the means by which it was attached to another object. It has not been possible to attribute the arms to a particular family.

Description: A copper-alloy mount of the mid Victorian/Edwardian period. It is of circular, domed construction with decoration consisting of multiple ribs on a stippled background radiating from the centre, a circumferential faceted band, and a zig-zag ribbon around the lower edge.

Stud or Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/post-medieval-to-modern/mounts/belt-strap-furniture-and-miscellaneous-mounts/stud-or-mount-1458.html Mon, 12 Dec 2005 00:00:00 GMT Belt, strap, furniture and miscellaneous mounts Stud or Mount  
Description: A flat rectangular stud or mount. The top surface has a defined lozenge-shaped centre with a lobe on each of its four sides, creating the overall rectangular form. There is a quatrefoil design at the centre of the lozenge. The reverse is plain, and it is not certain whether there was a single central spike (stud) or a pair of pointed lugs (mount).

Mount https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/post-medieval-to-modern/mounts/belt-strap-furniture-and-miscellaneous-mounts/mount-54146.html Thu, 03 Jan 2019 23:02:10 GMT Belt, strap, furniture and miscellaneous mounts Mount  
Description: A large openwork copper-alloy mount depicting a recumbent Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) within a wreath of corn and foliage.

The lamb faces to the right and supports the lower end of an oblique processional cross with its left foreleg; the remainder of the cross extends behind and then above its body. The lamb's right foreleg and hind legs are folded close to its body. The wreath is attached to the inner elements of the design via the head and rump of the lamb, its left foreleg, and both ends of the processional cross.

On the slightly recessed back of the lamb there are two integral pierced lugs for attachment. These suggest that the mount was attached to leather, fabric or other thin material, which would have been pierced to permit penetration by the two lugs. Once attached, the mount would be secured with a split-pin or wire threaded through the holes in the lugs.

By their nature, religious symbols tend to be unchanging, and the close dating of artefacts based on them can be problematic. In the present case, stylistic considerations (e.g. wreath details) and design factors (e.g. means of attachment) suggest a circa 18th-19th date, but the possibility of an earlier post-medieval date cannot be entirely excluded. The exact use of the mount is uncertain.
