Medieval yay or nay-curious mount

Post by Lowland »

I’d forgotten about this find that was in another pocket till today-same field as the Henry III penny and the medieval harness mount strap guide.
Copper alloy with a set of mounting? Lugs either side.
Has been silvered or suchlike now mostly gone,got a nice deep green patina.
I’m swithering on this one-it could well have some decent age and what was it for I wonder ,any ideas would be great-maybe a saddle mount?
Perhaps the lugs were longer and folded round a belt or strap ...
