A cast lead object, probably a leather working palm guard. It is tear-drop shaped, and has one flat face, with a convex reverse. The surface is smooth, with a pale buff to green patina.

Similar objects have been identified as Roman escutcheon filling; however, the smooth surface suggests this is more likely to be a palm-guard of medieval to post medieval date.
