WMA 6970

Medieval Livery Badge. A lead livery badge, cast in the form of a right-facing two-dimensional swan, standing with wings raised. Late 14th to early 15th century. Michael Mitchiner, Medieval Pilgrim & Secular Badges, p.201. Brian Spencer, Salisbury Museum Medieval Catalogue, Part 2, p.106. Lincolnshire. 21 mm high x 16 mm wide. The swan badge was used in the 14th century by the Bohun family, one of whose heiresses (Mary de Bohun) married Henry IV. Mary died before his accession, but Henry IV, and Henry V, continued to use the emblem, and it is possible that badges of this type were made as royalist badges during their reigns. A rare piece.
