More information on this chap:

Construction of the original appears to be lead.

So far the finders referral to the Portable Antiquities Scheme has not resulted
in being able to shed a lot of information on this find as to date or usage.

Suggestions around 13 – 14th Cen?

It remains a fascinating enigma.

Suggestions so far are that it may have been a vessel mount.

If you have any ideas please feel free to let me know and I will pass them on to the finder.

We were asked by the finder to produce replicas in the form of a mold.

These are copies of the original.
