Broad period: MODERN
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast pewter ring. The hoop is plain to the rear. The bezel takes the form of a man’s face with a beard and a significant mane of hair which stretches around to the sides of the hoop. Probably very modern in date as the construction is crude and the hoop is very thick.

Very worn button or ornamental fitting. It is circular and made from cast cu-alloy, displaying the setting for a semi-precious stone or glass centre-piece in the centre of the circle. Between and centre piece are moulded circles and dots, framing the green glass stone in the middle. Both the setting and the stone are chipped and very worn, probably not vouching for an old age but rather cheap-ish make. It is not clear if there was an attachment loop on the reverse; there is a moulded dot in the centre of the reverse, or possibly solder residue which could have attached a loop, wire or…

Object type: CLAY PIPE (SMOKING)
Broad period: MODERN
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
This is a socketed clay pipe bowl (socket broken off) depicting Alexander II, the Russian Czar (1818-1881). The pipe was made by Gambier, one of the best known French pipe manufacturers, who specialised in making high quality figural pipes. It was their pattern number 822 and was already in production by 1868, since it is shown in a catalogue of that year. The firm continued producing pipes until about 1920 and so this piece could have been made at any time between about 1860 and 1920. Gambier pipes are relatively common in late C19th English contexts since they were imported in larg…

A copper-alloy token dating from late the 18th or early 19th century. It is very worn and the exact date of the token can no longer be made out. However, although corroded one can see that the obverse depicts a hooded bust facing left which is meant to be a druid. The bust is surrounded by a laureate leaf design around the circumference of the coin. The reverse depicts the (very worn) scrolling letters PMC, which stands for the Parys Mine Company. Above these three letters would be the date and around this we would find the legend W[E] PROMISE TO PAY THE BEARER ONE PENNY. Furthermore, …

Cu-alloy hollow light-weight dress- or cloak-fastener in the shape of a lion's head dating from the early modern period, i.e. 1800-1900. The lion's head is hollow on the back and displays three small loops which were probably used to attach it to the cloak. Another moulded loop or similar is missing from one side of the lion's head and it can no longer be determined was it looked like. Many such fasteners have been recorded on this database. Many of these have come from coastal areas: Dorset (SOMDOR-FAE740), Hampshire (HAMP1024, HAMP2958, HAMP2579), Cornwall (CORN-7A96E7, CORN-CED143,…

Cast cu-alloy pipe tamper in the shape of 'Britannia', the personification of Great Britain, dating from the early modern period, i.e. c. late 18th or early 19th century. The female figure is draped and wears a helmet. In her left hand she holds a shield which, around the small boos, is decorated with the stripes and colours of the British flag. She probably held something - possibly a spear or sword - in her right hand, but whatever it was, it was very fragile and is broken off. The figure is standing on a little pedestal reel which was used to tamp down the tobacco in the bowl of the…

Cu-alloy token or counter dating from the late 18th century. The major series of these cu-alloy tokens or counters which are depicting Queen Anne appears to have been struck in Birmingham during the reign of George III. Counters of that class bear designs based on Queen Anne's shillings and sixpences: all bear the pre-Union form of shields...and show the mis-spelling 'RIG' for 'REG' which can be seen on this counter, too. Observed dates for pieces run from 1702-1774. This one is dated '1771'.

Duke of Lancaster/John of Gaunt token dating from 1791. In the 18th century, shortage of small change became so bad that these penny and halfpenny tokens were issued for workers. Unlike the 17th century tokens which were issued in the main by small traders, the 18th century tokens were pcincipally issued by large manufacturers such as breweries, mines, iorn works, cloth manufacturers and large copper works.

Cast cu-alloy pipe tamper dating from the early modern period, probably around 1800-1900. The pipe tamper is generally in good condition with a bright gold patina and only very small patches of corrosion. The surface is rough to the touch and looks worn. The pipe tamper handle depicts a gentleman in late 18th/early 19th century attire and hat resembling images of the older Napoleon Bonaparte (which it might well be!).

Fragment of a cast cu-alloy buckle frame dating from the early modern period, i.e. c. 18th century. It is made up of two interlaced ribbons decorated with moulded rosettes, punched cirles and oblique incised lines. It probably had an iron spindle and pin; those are missing today, but lumps of ferrous corrosion material are attached to the frame where the spindle would have been set. The buckle frame is slightly curved; it may have been a shoe buckle.

Maund and Martin Jenkins discuss ferry tickets in appendix 5 of volume 2 “Mersey Ferries”. They state that season tickets were referred to as “contracts” and were used by “middle Class” customers rather than working people. Contracts were available for 3, 6, and 12 months.
