Thread: Medieval Lion

    Medieval Lion

    These are this afternoons finds. Three more hammered coins. A tealby cut quarter Henry II, 1158-80. a short cross cut half, and a broken hammered of Elizabeth I. The best find though, had to be this medieval decoration, in the form of I think a lions head. Probably 13th/14th century, after all those centuries it still looks great. Robert.

    Cheers Bill . It's a bit of Medieval art, probably a leather or wood decoration.
