An incomplete, Post-Medieval, copper-alloy, toy cannon dating between 1675 - 1800AD. The barrel is called a cascable and the knop at the end of the breech chamber a cascable button. The barrel has circumferential mouldings and a breech chamber with a vent-hole sometimes referred to as a 'touch-hole'. There are two trunnions or basal lugs for attachment to a block or stock that are circular 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 flares outwards and is slightly misshapen. The canon is similar to o…

A post medieval whirligig or buzz disc/wheel, which has been cut from lead sheeting. The buzz disc is a slightly irregular circle and has a notched (serrated) edge and two slightly off-central holes (2.5mm in diameter), through which a looped string or cord would have been threaded. The disk is 37mm in diameter, 2.3mm thick and weighs 16.93 grams. One 'tooth' is missing from the edge, the break is patinated. It has a mid-grey to white patina. A number of these toys are illustrated by Egan and Forsyth (2005: 387-391). The dating of these toys is uncertain as they were probably often h…

Lead Alloy Toy gun fragment. Solid cast fragment from the stock of a toy musket. A cross-hatched ground may represent a textured or covered surface, and curvilinear vegetal scrolls extend from the butt across the lower part of the stock. The form of weapon represented is similar to that of a toy gun recently reported from Keelby, Lincs; however, this example would have been too thin to accommodate a working breech as was a feature of that piece. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1700. Length: 33.8mm, Width: 22.1mm, Thickness: 5.1mm, Weight: 9.06gms.

A cast copper alloy miniature toy cauldron dating to the Post-Medieval period. The object is cast in a triplicate form. These multiples are quite rare and toy cauldrons with three legs are more often found as a single component. This find has been cast so that three cauldrons are positioned together each with a single handle lug on the outside. Each individual cauldron also had one single leg one the outside, all of which are incomplete. One side of the cauldron has been damaged. The cauldron next to the damaged side is slightly larger than the other two. The object has a mid-green p…

Lead alloy Toy Musket fragment. Cast toy gun fragment of curving form, apparently representing a straight ended butt or musket stock. A hollow breech with a possible pin hole vent in its surviving side, towards its end, suggests this toy could be fired. The external surface is moulded in relief with oak leaves over an arrangement of longitudinal lines perhaps representing a decorated stock. A curled element below, just before where the stock gives way to a straight barrel, may represent a trigger guard. From above this curl, an internal breech measures 21mm in (remaining) length and…

Lead Alloy and iron Petronel. Cast toy gun fragment with the stubs of an iron trigger mechanism which project both above and below the position of the lock. This fragment includes a curved butt with a rectangular cavity of 9.5 x 2.4mm at its end, a moulded expansion beyond the position of the lock associated with the iron part/s, perhaps the end of the gun barrel, and beyond this the drilled and probably screw-threaded end of a hollow chamber with a bore of 3.5mm, showing that the toy could fire, although the ignition mechanism was different from that of the firearm it represents.
