One of a pair of very similar mounts depicting stylised anthropomorphic heads found metres apart and likely to have originally been attached to the same vessel or casket.

Bovine. Realistic and with atypical round eyes. Very similar in many ways to the pair on the complete handle from Bedford. The detached piece looks to be the back of the slot for the bucket rim with its rivet hole matching the visible rivet on the reverse of the mount.

Bovine. An oddity this one. It seems to be a broken handle with the bovine mount cast integrally, which would mean that the handle could not swivel. Otherwise a bull with all the features you'd expect

Bovine. An interesting handle mount that seems to be an attempt at solving some of the inherent weaknesses of standard fixture solutions. It seems to have worked for some considerable time because the suspension loop is worn through. Comparable to the mounts from the Little Orme hoard.

Bovine. Bull reduced to essential outline with little in the way of form remaining. Extremely crude and degenerate without any attempt at rendering features such as eyes. Has stubby horns though, so it's still clearly a bull. One step away from artistic extinction.
