Anglo Saxon Anthropomorphic Mount. An anthropomorphic copper-alloy vessel mount of the Early Anglo-Saxon period. The mount is moulded in the form of an elongated bearded head, with engraved lentoid eyes and mouth. Surmounting the head is a lightly ridged collared knop (possibly representational of a hair style or headdress), the ridges of which descend to form the hair on each side of the forehead. The reverse is concave, with no evident signs of attachment. Circa late 5th to mid 7th century AD. UKDFD Ref. No. - 44624. Near Tuxford, Nottinghamshire. 60mm x 22mm. A rare and interesting item.
