Medieval "Kings Head" Mount or Stud


Finder - Kevin Higgs

A complete cast copper alloy anthromorphic mount or stud of Medieval period dating (1200 to 1450 AD).
The mount is mid to dark green in colour, with an even surface patina. Similar 'King's Head / Crowned Head
studs can be seen on the PAS database. From their style they may date later medieval 13th to early 15th centuries.
This mount is possibly from a personal item, such as a stud from a leather belt. Kevin has been very efficient and he
has already reported his find to Mark Lodwick, FLO, National Museum of Wales, and Mark is at present in the process
of recording it. The find has greatly interested Mark and he has even asked Kevin if he would consider donating it to
the National Museum of Wales, so it can be included in their medieval collection. Congratulations to Kevin - Nice find!
