That can only be described as a great find. It's something high on my wish list.
It would look fantastic on a custom made stand.

What a great find and in such superb condition. The P.A.S. will be sure to enter that on its file, just make sure you get it back and as spearhead has said, it will be outstanding mounted as a showpiece.
Well found 👍

Was immediately struck how impressive this find was,even before any cleaning.
Something about the soil here preserves enamelling,yet chews up copper coins.
Think I can get away with a bit more gentle cleaning tonight.

A Limoges casket mount.

I found one of those a few years ago near Pontefract.

They are regarded as of being 'regional importance' by the FLO.
