|Medieval| |Artifacts|, |Medieval| |Spain,| |Bronze| |Scabbard| |Chape,| |c.| |15th| |-| |16th| |Century|
In the London Museum medieval catalogue, Ward-Perkins dates similar chapes to the late 15th or 16th century. He suggests that metal dagger chapes were only used on the sheaths of military daggers or the more elaborate forms of civilian dagger. The great majority of surviving leather sheaths belonged to ordinary knives or knife-daggers and these have no metal terminal.
AS89417. bronze scabbard chape, 58.7mm long, 12.9mm wide, 10.4mm thick, complete, cracked on front, 15th - 16th century; hollow shield shaped, curved sides converging at the base, a solid rounded knob terminal, curved upper edge with a raised lip on the front, rectangular opening on the back; SOLD

|Medieval| |Artifacts|, |Lot| |4| |Bronze| |Buttons,| |c.| |1300| |-| |1600| |A.D.,| |Eastern| |Europe| |Metal| |Detector| |Finds|
Although button-like decorative objects were worn in the Indus Valley, China, and Rome in ancient times, functional buttons with buttonholes for fastening or closing clothes appeared first in 13th century Germany. The first button makers guild was formed in 1250 A.D. The guild produced magnificent buttons, worn only by the wealthy. In 13th and 14th century buttons were used to create snug-fitting garments that accentuated the curves of the body (arms of a man or the bosom of a woman). It was a maniacal fashion trend among the rich to own dresses with unique and exotically-designed buttons. In some cases, buttons covered most of the garment - and each button had its own button hole!
MA95798. Lot of 4 buttons, Eastern Europe metal detector finds, choice wearable condition, SOLD
