Hollow lead alloy pilgrim souvenir depicting the in the round standing figure of St Thomas Becket. Becket is shown wearing a bishop’s mitre and chasuble. Damage has occurred to the figure's arms and crosier. A hook protrudes from Becket's right arm. The piece was probably free-standing. This piece is associated with the shrine of St Thomas Becket at Canterbury.
