Silver strip mount

Silver strip mount with interlace decoration. Cleaning of a small portion of the strip revealed that it had originally been gilded. The shape suggests that the piece may have come from the top of a knife sheath. However, if it has been distorted it may be a mount from the rim of a small horn or cup, and would have been secured in place by separate, rivetted strips. It is late 7th or early 8th century in date.
