Purse Hangers 13th c.

Copper alloy. Two lobed design. They would have been suspended from a belt with U shaped fitting. The images with scale show one of these hangers in place and in profile. These are discussed on pages 219-224 of "Medieval Finds from Excavations in London: 3 - Dress Accessories c. 1150-1450." These examples most closely resemble 1198, but these only have 2 lobes whereas 1198 has 3.
