Lead alloy wheel. Cast flanged wheel with nine spokes radiating between its hub and rim. Probably from a toy train, possibly modelled at O Gauge or a scale of c.1:32. Iron staining suggests the loss of a steel axle. The dimensions are so close to whole and rounded metric units as to hint at Continental manufacture. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1939
