Notes

This is recorded as having been moved from (Tower) Renaissance, case 11 Gallery in March 1996, but the previous location was clearly Middle Flint. The numbering of the pommels (formerly) on display in Renais. 11 in confused, but it seems likely that the number of the one moved from there was misread; i.e. IX.734 was not moved to LDIS, but another one.
