Header: Late Medieval Heraldic Horse Harness Pendants.

Material: Copper alloy

Period: Medieval

Date: 14th Century

Origin: Britain

Condition: VF to VF+, a lot of original detail to the arms is visible; one pendant has its suspension loop intact, the other is sadly broken.

Description: Two copper alloy pendant mounts for horses harness with suspension loops. The design is of lozenge shape of four lobes with interstitial spurs, with a central square with lion passant and a group of three flowers in each lobe.

Size and Weight: Each 43 x 36mm, 7.89g and 13.58

Features and Provenance:  The mounts, or pendants as they are sometime referred to, were placed on the peytrel across the chest, the browband across the head or the cupper across the flanks of the horse. The two are sold together as they are probably for the same family but as there manufacture is somewhat varied, it implies that they were made some time apart, the design more stylised on the heavier example.
