The rim is beaded and the flat base decorated with a central rose within a pelleted circular border which in turn is contained within a rectangular linear border which has a ring and dot motif at each corner. The ring in these ring and dot motifs is a pelleted ring instead of the more common linear rings. There are two slight scars on the edge opposite the angular …

An incomplete cast lead petronel style toy pistol of post-medieval date. The circular barrel is hollow with an integral flared stock and small knop representing the trigger. Both the barrel and stock are decorated with incised cross hatching. Guns of this type were based on the match-lock 'petronels' of the 16th and 17th centuries, and were fully working models. The metal has a dark blackish-grey patina and is worn. The toy is 53.1mm long, 8.4mm wide, 7mm thick and weighs 14.4g.

A flat, worn and incomplete Post-Medieval or early modern lead alloy toy in the form of a fish. The mouth, eye and scales are clearly depicted, the eye is formed by a circle. The tail survives, but no fins. Scale decoration within a border on the body, the scales are formed by parallel wavy lines. Decoration faintly visible on the reverse probably replicates that on the opposing side. Possibly a novelty from a cracker, or a piece from a children's game. Suggested date: Post-Medieval to Modern, 1750-1950. see another example at: NLM-C2AAF4

A post medieval whirligig or buzz disc/wheel, which has been cut from lead sheeting. The buzz disc has a notched (serrated) edge and two slightly off-central holes (4.5mm in diameter), through which a looped string or cord would have been threaded. One hole appears to have been stretched out wider than the other, possibly from use. The disk is 26.55mm in diameter, 3.21mm thick and weighs 11.4 grams. It is slightly bent and has serval cuts, probably made by the plough. It has a dark grey patina shading to white at the edges. A number of these toys are illustrated in Egan and Forsyth: T…

Copper alloy Toy. Basin. Cast model of a basin with a prominent foot ring; a casting line with untrimmed flash appears along the vessel walls. Slightly squashed. This object is comparable to probably earlier lead alloy toys, though the material is different and was perhaps intended to replicate the appearance of a copper basin or wash bowl; it would certainly be more difficult to manufacture given the higher melting point of copper alloys. Suggested date: Post-Medieval to Modern, 1750-1850. Width: 30.1mm, Height: 20.1mm, Wall Thickness: 1.5mm, Weight: 7.41gms.

An incomplete late Post Medieval to early Modern cast copper alloy toy canon, c. 1700-1900 AD. The barrel is called a cascabel and the knop at the end of the breech chamber a cascable button. The barrel has circumferential mouldings and a breech chamber with two vent-holes sometimes referred to as a 'touch-hole'. There are two trunnions or basal lugs for attachment to a block or stock that are oval in cross-section. The trunnions sat in the top of the cheeks of the gun carriage and enabled the piece to be elevated. The muzzle does not flare as in some earlier examples, bu…

A worn and corroded Post Medieval lead-alloy toy in the form of a horse and rider, probably dating to the late 17th or early 18th century AD. This artefact has cast detail on both sides.

Further details can be seen on the jacket including pockets and a star on the breast, while the figure also appears to be carrying a sword. The horse has a decorative saddle and appears to be moving with pace, although one fore and hind leg are missing. This artefact has a medium grey colour ov…

A slightly worn and bent Post Medieval cast lead-alloy miniature toy plate probably dating to the c. 17th century AD. The plate is circular in plan and has raised cast detail on the upper surface. In the centre of the plate is a 7 petalled flower, within a border formed of hemispheres. Expanding to the exterior edge is a floral border, with a raised rope-twist pattern at the circumference of the plate. This artefact has a dark grey colour, and a possible similar example can be seen in Forsyth and Egan (2005).

Post medieval cast copper alloy toy cannon. The muzzle (open end) of the cannon is missing to an old break. It is cast in one piece with a pronounced base ring and tapering breech. The cascabel is very long and prominent, narrowing after the base ring and ending in a small, expanded, rounded knop terminal. The vent field, between the base ring and vent ring, is only as wide as the vent hole which is 2.5mm in diameter. The barrel is corroded but appears to have double incised rings between the vent ring and first reinforce ring. The trunnions project from either side of the first re…

A fragment probably from a Post Medieval lead alloy toy, probably dating 17th - 18th century. The fragment includes a section of a thicker frame with two horizontal bars and one surviving vertical bar connecting them. There are the surviving stubs of other vertical bars.

An incomplete cast lead toy of late post-medieval to modern date. The toy is in the form of a horse with mounted rider. The rider sits on the horse leaning forwards with his head also facing forwards. Both arms are raised to near face level and what appear to be the butt of a gun can be seen resting on the riders' left shoulder suggesting he is a hunter. The rider is wearing a hat, jacket with rolled sleeves, belt, long trousers and knee high riding boots with a slight heel. The horse appears to be in a canter with legs bent and raised. The bridle wear can be clearly seen across th…

Cast copper alloy 16th to 17th century AD working petronel toy pistol. This example probably dates to the 16th centuryAD. The barrel is hollow, hexagonal in section with a flared stock and square guard; a touch-hole to the lower barrel and incised roundels and line detailing to the exterior. The petronel is a working model which would have fired lead balls. The petronel is somewhat similar in appearance to the pretronel pistol used by 16th and 17th century cavalrymen. There is a school of thought that they were produced as gunmakers' samples, however, this is speculation. The length i…

Post-medieval lead toy dish, distorted and with part of the rim missing. The flange is decorated in low relief with a ring of conjoined arches. In the centre a bird walking to the right is set within a circular frame. Diam. c.30mm. This motif does not appear in either Egan 1996 or Forsyth with Egan 2005. Compare with an example from Postwick with Witton, Norfolk (HER 34375, NMS-22FB86), which is not a mould duplicate but it should be noted that both are of lead rather than lead alloy. 17th - 18th century.

Cast lead shy cock. Double sided it has been broken at the feet and is missing a beak and comb. Shy-cocks may have derived from the Shrove Tuesday pursuit of casting stones or cudgels at a live cockerel which was either tied down or buried up to its neck in the ground (Forsyth & Egan 2005: 239).
