Cast decorative lead knop possibly used as a decorative fitting, stopper or cap. The front of the artefact demonstrates a large central pellet with 6 equidistant triangular segments projecting from this towards the outer edge. Decorating each segment are 5 dots in a linear form. These segments are separated by equal sized plain segments. The reverse of the artefact tapers slightly from the front of the artefact to form a collar at the back. This collar marks the edge of a slightly recessed area. Probably 17th-19th century in date.
