Copper-alloy, 6.85 grams, 38.90 mm. Circa 12th century AD. A copper-alloy plate or mount with polychrome champ leve design between two gilt borders each pierced with four rivet holes (three rivets remaining). The design comprises a stylised dark blue bird facing right on a turquoise enamelled background, its neck and chest executed in incised hatched blocks. The bird image is a good example of Romanesque Style which came to England in the reign of Edward the Confessor but only became popular in the following century. By the early 12th century, goldsmiths at the Benedictine abbey of Conques were able to produce enamelled panels with vivid colours and golden surfaces. The enamels made in the French city of Limoges became an artistic hallmark of the region. Reference: cf. Limoges mount in Read, B. Metal Artefacts of Antiquity, vol.1, Langport, 2001, item 119 and decoration on an English cup in the Statens Historiska Museum published in Zarnecki, G., Holt, J. & Holland, T. English Romanesque Art 1066-1200, London, 1984 item 304. Good very fine condition. Provenance: found Nottinghamshire, UK.
