Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated

The terminal from a modern, 18th to 19th century pastry jigger. The object is missing its functional cutting end, and only the top end survives. The object is 'T' shaped and terminates in a 'crimped' zig zag, presumably to be used in decorating the pastry. Beneath the terminal there is a double collared knop and then a circular shaft. These objects are often confused with Roman tile combs. The object measures 50.21 mm long, 35.25 mm wide at the 'T'shaped end, and has a shaft that is 4.9 mm thick. It weighs 14.6 grams. It has a smooth dark green patina.
