Item ages if someone can

Post by Savaloy101 »

Hello again,

Well after my last disastrous post, whoops, I think I have an idea about the next two but unsure on age.

1. Scabbard end
2. Book clasp?

Both appear to be bronze.

Many thanks

Book cover corner trim/protector & a Medieval strap-end or chape.....the jury is still out on those.

Ahoy. A nice, complete ball-ended strap end on the right. Comparison here:

God gives all men all earth to love, but since man’s heart is small,
Ordains for each one spot shall prove beloved over all.
Each to his choice, and I rejoice, the lot has fallen to me
In a fair ground—in a fair ground—Yea, Sussex by the sea!

Both are nice finds, I cant offer an opinion on either as they are pretty unique in my experience.
Please keep these very interesting finds coming, and many many thanks for posting.
