Norse domed mount with three-fold symmetry and distinctive punched triangles with raised dots between the circled crosses.
28-APR-2012

Norse domed mount with three-fold symmetry and distinctive punched triangles with raised dots between the circled crosses.

Too small to be the central shield boss, but could be a separate ornament on a shield (as seen in the Sutton Hoo treasure). I wonder what else domed mounts such as this were used to decorate? Three-fold symmetry is popular in Norse decoration.
