Lead alloy whirligig or buzz disc, which has been cut from lead sheeting. The buzz disc is circular in plan and has a shape serrated edge. In the centre are two pinched off-centre holes, through which a looped string or cord would have been threaded. The spinning disc would have produced a whirring noise when the tension was relaxed by pulling the hands apart (Forsyth and Egan 2005, p. 387). A number of similar objects have been found in London, which Forsyth and Egan suggest date from the 17th or 18th centuries. G Egan and H Forsyth, 2005. Toys, trifles and trinkets London : Museum…
