Early Post-Medieval copper alloy openwork lozengiform mount, A small cast copper alloy mount or stud, in the shape of a bird. The mount is a rough oval in shape, being the shape of a bird with wings folded away. The top forms the head, with a sharp beak pointing left; this resembles that of a crow, raven, magpie or other corvid. The decoration is basic, consisting of a crude ‘eye’ and horizontal lines on the body. The mount is convex in section, hollow at the reverse, with the stumps of two studs. This artefact dates to the 13th to 15th centuries.

'A badge for a Knight of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre in bronze and dating somewhere around C13/14th possibly very slightly later . This is a very scarce item and it relates to The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem being a Catholic chivalric order of Knighthood that traces its roots to Godfrey of Bouillon, principal leader of the First Crusade. According to reliable sources in the Vatican and Jerusalem, it began in historical reality as a mixed clerical and lay confraternity (association) of pilgrims which gradually grew around the most central of the Christian holy places in the Middle East, the Holy Sepulchre or the tomb of Jesus Christ.This would have been a pin for a member of the order , there is a mark on the reverse where the original pin would have been fixed '
