After a fairly unproductive day yesterday ,got home and cleaned up what little finds there were . This lead mount has me a little puzzled as to its use and how old it is. I can't make my mind up if it is relatively modern or if it has a bit of age to it . If anyone has any thoughts on use and more so on date I would be very interested to hear your thoughts.

Looks like a harness mount. Similar examples in terms of shape, but not decoration, are dated 1600-1850 on PAS. A nice find :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I found something similar that’s about 60mm across I hadn’t thought it would be that old and until I saw yours I’d forgotten about it, thanks for reminding me, if I can find it I’ll put a picture on later.

I managed to find the harness boss first time, that doesn’t happen often.

Nice find , I think we all have things in boxes meaning to give a second look at some stage but never seem to get around to it. Then you see something similar which stirs us into action and gain a better appreciation of something discarded. :thumbsup:

That’s an 18-19th century plain centre type bridle rosette like this one

The Finds Research Group Datasheet 54 is a great guide to these. It’s just been published.

Thanks again Oxgirl.
I’ll keep you busy identifying my box of things I don’t know what they are but can’t throw away.
I’ll put some mor stuff on later.
