Description: An early post-medieval sword-belt fitting. The fitting has a hollow, convex, elliptical body with a long pointed terminal at one end and a flat discoidal knop at the other. The external surface of the convex portion has two parallel incised lines running lengthwise 5mm apart, and the terminal has multiple, fully three-dimensional, reel and spool mouldings. There is a rivet hole in the centre of the body, and another one towards the flat-knopped end. The first is fiitted with an iron/steel rivet, and the second with one of copper alloy; the latter rivet retains a fragment of copper-alloy sheet.

The fitting is closely similar in style and manufacture to certain early post-medieval hooked mounts (e.g. UKDFD 27376 - see comparison, Image 5) and toggle-clasps (e.g. UKDFD 12840 and UKDFD 26405) associated with sword-belt use. The flat knop is smaller than usual for toggle-discs of this type, but the possibility cannot be discounted. If not a toggle-clasp, the fitting may be an en-suite item, most likely a strap-end, although a close parallel has not been traced at the time of validation.

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.
