ID'd as medieval furniture fitting

Post by Stillburning » Fri Oct 13, 2017 11:20 am

Had a few hours late yesterday afternoon on disked stubble, very dry, rough and lumpy, not many signals none of which were more than an inch below the surface.

First picture show what I think is a mount from the rivets at each and the basic decoration, on the right I think fibula brooch fragment, then the bit I'm not sure about.

At first I thought modern but then what is it, on closer look the terminals do not appear to e broken and have a slight zoomorphic appearance - any comments or suggestions appreciated ::g

Thanks for looking ::g

Hello stillburning,

Nice finds ::g

I think your item is a medieval furniture fitting (zoomorphic indeed).

Have a look at this one for reference:
