Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Medieval lead alloy bag shaped ampulla, 41mm in diamater and weighing 87.33g. The ampulla has a circular lower section with a rectangular shaped neck above. It is missing any handles and has been folded in half. It has a white patina and is decorated on one side with the letters 'WV' stamped within an oval depression. The other side, obsured partly by the neck, has linear ridges radiating out to its round edge to represent a scallop shell. The ampulla appears to have been purposely folded perhaps as a result of being damaged and the owner attempted to repair it.
