15th Century Heraldic Horse Pendant Pertaining to the Wake Family    SOLD

This shield shaped bronze medieval pendant depicts the Coat of Arms of the Wake family, who resided in Bilsworth, Northamptonshire. The coat of arms comprises of three red roundels at the top followed by two red horizontal bars. The background would have consisted of gold/yellow enamelling, but this has not survived and the surface is a little uneven.  However, the red roundels and two bars are complete with full smooth enamel. In heraldic terms the Wake arms are described as "Or, with two bars gules in chief three torteaux."  

The pendant has lost its attachment loop, which is probably the reason for it becoming detatched from its horse harness and was discovered near Daventry in the county of Northamptonshire. Sir Roger Wake, whose manor was at Blisworth, Northants. was a staunch supporter of Richard III and fought for the king at the Battle of Bosworth Field on 22nd August 1485. Sir Roger Wake was the brother-in-law of Sir William Catesby and was attainted following Richard III's defeat.

This is a very rare heraldic horse pendant in very good condition, to a well-known historical family.
