Probably a Medieval or post medieval cast lead alloy cup weight from a set of nested weights, dating to c. AD 1300-1600. The weight was originally open in profile, having a circular base with the sides flaring up to a wider rim. It has been compressed and one side is now folded inwards, although the original base area remains relatively unaffected. The flat rim surface itself is decorated with a motif of repeated raised circles, which continue around the full circumference. No other decoration survives, but a possible attachment point is visible on the flat side, where two circular im…

A lead weight, probably a steelyard weight. The weight is an elongated pyramid with a truncated apex. There is pierced hole running from the apex to the base where it emerges slightly off- centre. The base ia sub- angular and slightly dished around a collar encircling the hole. The dishing suggests this was cast in an open mould, point downwards. THe collar indicates that the lead was still fairly soft when the hole was made. The weight is equivalent to approximately 2.5 ounces.

A late post-medieval/ modern circular lead weight measuring 16.7mm in diameter, 8.4mm in thickness and weighing 16.28g. It has damage in several places to the high sides, which in turn has caused damage to both faces. One face reads RIPPINGIL[...] around the top, the lettering around the bottom is lost due to wear. The other face reads [RI]PPINGILL[E]'S around the top and PA[...]T. around the bottom. The inscription on both faces can perhaps be interpreted as RIPPINGILLE'S PATENT and be related to Rippingille's Patent stoves. Taken from Royal Museums Greenwich (http://collections.rmg…
