Record ID: LVPL-90DE81
Object type: SEAL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small copper alloy cast seal of cruciform general shape with hollow circular centre, the three upper arms terminating in a rounded knops. The fouth arm carried a laterally compressed conoid with oval bottom that bears a now degraded design, possibly of a splayed heraldic bird with two heads, outlined with a recessed border. A similar example recorded as NLM-F77481 is thought to have a late medieval to post-medieval date and to be connected to the Baltic and Hanseatic trade routes of the North Sea; this link is harder to establish in this object's case.

A shield shaped lead weight, similar to examples (p. 41-45) in Biggs and Withers' catalogue of the David Rogers collection (2000). The object is of an overall rounded oval shape, with a divide about 2/3rds along the object. The smaller third is pierced and appears to have two distinct pellets. The larger third has a shield shaped area that is curved and raised, so that it is sunken at the border and bulging in the centre. Any design that was originally in place has since been destroyed by wear or weathering.

A lead spindle whorl, probably of medieval date. Spindle whorls are a a textile manufacturing technology that allows for the production of threads with a consistent twist and therefore thickness. The formerly circular shape is now slightly distorted, probably by its time spent in the ploughsoil, but the overall form is still the common flattened biconical shape. Both surfaces are decorated, one with raised pellets enclosed in vaguely quadrilateral divisions.The other side has a stylised radial petal-like design. This is similar to other whorls recorded on the database, LVPL-AE718C an…

A cast copper alloy pot leg resembling Butler, Green and Payne type 4a, probably from a cooking vessel of medieval or early post-medieval dat (1250-1600). The leg is rougly trilobed, the central raised strip projecting 1mm above the main shaft. There may have been a more defined foot but corrosion has reduced the relief elements significantly. When placed flat on its foot, the leg projects at a roughly 60 degree angle. The main shaft is heavily encrusted with verdigris and other various corrosion products, the variability of which possibly indicating a large amount of lead in the material.

An unidentified lead object, possibly a mould, roughly rectangular in shape and with a central suken area. The design is situated in a sunken circle, part of which has been destroyed by damage to the main lead slab. At the centre is a curving serpent-like design with a tassel of four parts as a tail and an S shaped body, leading to a possible head. This may only be half of a two-part mould, maybe for the creation of tokens or coin-like objects. There is also the possibility this was used for impressing a design into butter.
