A very good quality medieval period horse harness pendant ,circa 1250-1400AD.
This item which is decorated with six small lion / Beast figures is connected to the De Bahon family.
It would have been fastened to the side of the horses headband and in its day would have had much enamel inlay.
This symbol would have belonged to the family of the mounted knight and would also have been represented on his shield.
North Yorkshire excavations 1976.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
