Copper-alloy object of uncertain function. It probably dates to the Post-Medieval period. It is sub-rectangular in plan and rectangular in section. The object consists of a piece of copper alloy which has been folded at the base to form two arms. The base is rectangular, it then narrows to form a waist, and expands outwards again in a sub-diamond shape. The top of the object has serrated teeth. It is undecorated and there are no rivet holes visible. It has a dark brownish green patina.
