Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Complete cast lead-alloy trade weight of medieval to post-medieval date (c.1380 - 1600 AD). The weight is shield-shaped in plan and trapezoidal in section and would have been decorated with a moulded relief design on the front panel but wear and corrosion has obscured any decorative detail. Around the edges a cross pattern can still be made out. The back surface is plain apart from a small protruding ridge from the casting process. The weight has a rough light grey patina and its surface is very marked and worn. The weight weighs 217g and is 49.53mm in length and 43.25mm at maximum width. The thickness of the weight is 15.44g.

Other examples from the database include: LANCUM-4B01D1, LANCUM-055570, NLM-C96A33, NLM-24F288 and LVPL-8DA9DA.
