Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Post Medieval/Modern intaglio, identified by G Seidmann of Oxford University: a glass intaglio with faceted rim (?) which seems to be moulded (in the 18th or early 19th century) from a stone of 17th century date, and not a portrait but a fanciful image. James Tassie and his nephew and successor William Tassie produced several thousand moulded glass pastes: there is a catalogue by R E Raspe, which however has very few illustrations and those of famous stones. Edinburgh NPGallery has a collection of Tassie casts in red sulphur, which is, however, not published. It seems pretty certain t…

Medieval to Post Medieval lead alloy or lead cast uniface token. Though damaged, stylistically it appears to be a debased long cross coin, with short lines in the quadrants (two with 1 line & two with two lines).The reverse is plain and undecorated. Lead 'long cross' tokens are difficult to date accurately as they had a variety of uses and were made locally. Historically cross and pellet designs were thought to be contemporary with the similar Medieval coin designs. However recent publication of moulds and double faced tokens which combine Post Medieval initial style designs with cros…

Medieval to early post medieval cast lead alloy, or lead, perforated circular weight or spindle whorl. The weight has a circular perforation through the centre. The weight appears to have seen a lot of use as there is a great deal of wear and is heavily damaged being somewhat flattened. In the "Finds Recording Guide", Geake (2001, p66) points out that: "The function of lead weights would have varied, from spindle-whorls to fishing weights to trade weights." She adds that spindle whorls should ideally be circular and must have a central perforation (ibid.). It is possible, therefore…

Copper alloy ring of uncertain date though the angular section suggests Medieval 1200 - 1500 AD.
