Hi all.

This is my first post on this site. It looks like the place to go for sensible IDs!

Would you mind taking a look at the below items for me? One has the appearance of a horse harness pendant, but the 'loop' just doesn't look quite right.

The other one seems more modern and has the bent pin.

I'm stumped as to what either are. Both were found on a field close to a Roman road in Derbyshire.

Thanks in advance 👍🙂

First one is a furniture or saddle tack. Second one looks familiar? :Thinking:

You wouldn't happen to know a rough age on the tack would you?

Yes, ths second one does look familiar. It's very frustrating as I can't quite work out what it is.

19/20th century. Second one is a dagger chape. :thumbsup:

Certainly has the shape to be a dagger chape. I'm not sure about the 'clip' riveted to it?
Always carefully proof-read what you've typed to see if you've any words out.

It looks to be all cast in one to me.

Zooming in, you could be right :thumbsup: :D

Not getting the second one being a dagger chap at all :Thinking: It looks like a modern item - a type of belt slide or maybe just a type of flat hook clasp from a bag or similar?
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

It does look like half of a strap clasp of sorts but I seem to remember seeing a dagger chape of this type somewhere? :Thinking:

A dagger chape would be cool!

I definitely don't think the item is particularly recent, but I can't work out how old it is.
