A cast lead alloy object of unceratin function and date. The object is sub-circular in plan and oval in cross-section. At the top of the object is a central projection which is oval in cross-section. The projection is incomplete and possibly would have formed an attachment loop. Projecting from either side of the possible incomplete loop are two curved pointed triangular projections (four in total). The projections curve towards the central attachment. Each face of the object is decorated with lines of raised moulded pellets. A casting seeem remains around the edge of the object below the projections. The object has a light grey patina which is mid-white in places.

The function of the object is unknown however a hanging pendant has been suggested, possibly from a Georgian candlestick.
