Lead window came. A fragment from the junction of milled cames of H-section marking where three or four glass panes of thickness 2mm [lost] formerly met, with a blob of solder attaching the end of a short [12mm] strip of lead ribbon with a lightly corrugated face to one side. The thin [0.5mm] leaves of the came indicate it is made of milled lead. Milled came is of post-medieval date, and this small fragment might as easily come from glazed furniture as from a window. The solder also appears fairly recent. Fragments from the meeting of light panes are among the most commonly reported examples of window came reported. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1900.
