Belt Mount

Find number two from Colin Barton is a copper-alloy belt mount. The face is in the shape of a quatrefoil; in the centre might be a face, at the top a rounded element and at the bottom a spray. This side is gilded (almost fully intact) and is quite attractive.

On the back are two integrally cast spikes and when the mount was fixed to a leather belt the spikes would be bent over to hold it in place. The method of mounting is typical of a 17th century date. A very wide range of mounts of this date are on record, this one being one of the nicest I have seen.
