Record ID: LVPL-B29661
Object type: PIPE TAMPER
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of a possible pipe tamper, this section being the finger ring that would attach to the tamping shaft itself. It is of copper alloy and cast, the band being convex in outer prifile and perpendicular on the inner, forming a 'D' shape in cross section. The area that would be a setting in a conventional ring has here a 7mm diameter hole for the probable anchoring of the tamping shaft, in contrast to a similar type (SWYOR-4BBAD6) that has the tamper on the underside of the band and the upper surface mount as that of a signet ring. The crispness of the moulding and lack of deteriora…

Object type: BIRD FEEDER
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late medieval (AD 1540-1700) lead bird feeder, of similar style to BH-85F197 and LANCUM-901915 The object is a flared rim vessel of roughly 45 mm in height and 72 mm in absolute width, though this is probably not an accurate reflection of its original proportions as it is now compressed and distorted. A flattened back and two possible suspension points may indicate it was attached to a flat surface above the bottom of the bird enclosure, though the base is also flat enough for it to have been freestanding. Egan (2005) notes that similar objects, excavated in London, were in their o…

A cast copper-alloy buckle of post-medieval date (AD 1660-1720), similar to examples given on pg. 97 of Whitehead (2003), specifically number 599. This design and type were commonly used as knee and shoe buckles.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Half of a cast copper-alloy buckle, similar to examples given on pg. 82 of Whitehead (2003), specifically number 511. Only half of the buckle survives, one of the loops being lost. The remaining section consists of the cross bar and the other loop. Details of mouldings can be seen on the loop, resembling foliate or feather-like patterns. Both ends of the crossbar are connected to rounded knops; all mounding is limited to a side that would have presumably been the front.

A copper-alloy clasp of some kind with a small putto or simian figure. The object consists of a long, curved piece of metal, folded in the centre, with a fan-like decorated element attached at one end. This is decorated in low relief with the aforementioned putto or monkey surrounded by what appears to be stylised foliate and floral imagery, perchhed on a curling rococo scroll.

A copper-alloy clasp, consisting of a long and thin piece of metal folded over on itself, one end with an attached fan-like decorative section. This is similar to LVPL-F71167 but differs in the shallow-relief design on the fantail element; in this case the decoration appears to feature a seated figure, possibly female, in a domestic or cottage industry setting. The floor appears checquered and roughly in isometric perspective., with flanking scrolls.

The cross guard of a dagger, probably of sixteenth century date. A similar but not identical example can be found under GLO-5E1DA7. It is of a lozenge shape, with ends that flare out like trumpet. There is a thin projection that loops back towards the centre; a broken attachment point on the opposite side probably indicates a symmetrical feature was present on the opposite arm. The central hole through which the tang would have passed is of a rounded quadrilateral shape.
