A corroded lead sprue fragment from the casting of post-medieval window cames. It is formed of a strip with three H-shaped protrusions (c. 8.2 by c. 5.8mm each), the beginnings of the cames. The strip has a hollowed lower surface and folded 'skirt' to one side. By reference to similar waste from London a 17th-century date can be suggested (Egan 2005, 147; ref. 782); this would seem to be corroborated by finds made in the vicinity recorded on this database.
