Lot 0568
6th-early 7th century AD. A separately-cast bronze mask mount from a cruciform brooch (Group V, florid type) comprising a flat plaque with a sheet silver cover, male mask formed as two opposed Style I heads with triple-band bar beneath the eye; to the reverse, fixing stud and remains of ferrous pin. Cf. West, S. A Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Finds From Suffolk, East Anglian Archaeology 84, Ipswich, 1998, p.311 items 7, 8. The Anglian cruciform brooch typically featured three radiating lugs on the headplate, inherited from the Late Roman crossbow brooch which inspired it. Later forms of the cruciform brooch developed highly ornamental lugs, often cast separately and fixed to the headplate with an iron pin. 7.89 grams, 29mm (1 1/4"). Found Louth, Lincolnshire, UK; in 1985.
