Lead possible knife pommel. Solid cast cylindrical object of slightly waisted oval form with traces of an upper rim or margin, and with a squared hole to receive the end of a whittle tang at one flat end. The other flat surface - presumably the top - is lightly battered. Lightly patinated. The whittle tang and the plain finish of the pommel may both point to this coming from a specialised knife or bladed tool for whose use a counterweighted handle was especially useful. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900.
