Cloth Seal *General Information

Stone Mould for Casting Blank Cloth Seals, found in London. This illustration was taken from Geoff Egan, 'Lead cloth seals and related items in the British Museum' Fig.4 p.5

Once the other side of the mould is attached molten lead would be pored into the funnel at the top and produce four, two-disc blank cloth seals. The sprues are not always cut off cleanly leaving stubs that can be mistaken for connecting strips to further discs.
