Impost, fragment A

Image of the feature "VI. Loose Sculpture: Fragment A" at Great Dunham.

by Jill A Franklin.

 

Impost, decorated on both long sides with a roll, followed by a row of trefoils in relief, creating circular hollows between them. Presumably this came from some free-standing structure. Its top (or bottom) surface bears a deep groove and a hollowed-out circle. It is made of pinkish (?fire-damaged) limestone.
