An incomplete cast lead whistle of modern date. The whistle is a hollow cone with open apex and a sub-triangular section removed to act as the sound hole. A casting seem is present along the two sides of the whistle and it is moulded with a design consisting of two ovate elements, giving the appearance of eyes. To either side of the "eyes" are two semi-circular designs which is repeated in retrograde on the bottom just in front of the sound hole. The metal has a mid greyish white colour and is worn.

Incomplete cast tin alloy hawking whistle, cylindrical in profile and circular in section, with two raised ribs which run around the circumference of the barrel of the whistle, on either side of the semi-circular sounding hole, which has since broken to form a larger aperture. The upper end of the whistle tapers towards the neck and then expands into a spherical suspension loop that has a drilled circular hole which would have taken the lanyard or cord to suspend the whistle. At the opposite end, the mouthpiece of the whistle is also broken so that it is open and the 'baffle' is loose…

Possibly Copper alloy Whistle. Cast tube with a pair of opposed rectangular slots at one end and a metal plate or reed within it at the other; an apparently separately cast and collared mouthpiece is attached at the slotted end. The tubular element bears the stamped legend: J. HUDSON & Co / Birmingham / 1916, which may supply an apt date. The manufacture of a whistle in Birmingham may suggest it was intended for military or police use as such objects would more usually be home made in an agricultural setting. Suggested date: Modern. Length: 62.1mm, Diameter (mouthpiece): 18.2mm, …

Modern copper alloy trade weight from a stacking set. The weight is circular with a wide raised rim on the top. The top has two concentric incised circles within the rim and stamped initials. The sides are angled and the back flat. The weight is stamped with a crowned GR at 6 o'clock, the crown is weakly stamped or worn, and a crowned V at right angles to this at 12 o'clock. It is 20.3mm in diameter and 3.5mm thick; it weighs 5.61 grams, 0.215 oz. It was probably originally a quarter of an ounce with some weight lost to corrosion.

Cast copper alloy trade weight from a stacking set, circular in plan with angled sides and a wide raised rim on the top. The recessed area within this raised border has a central incised circle surrounding a crown over the letters TRURO, which is a provincial mark that has been stamped over an earlier stamp, at about 9 o'clock, of a ewer, used in London until 1826 (Bailey, 2000, 42). Below the central stamp, at about 6 o'clock, is a square shield on its side with the sword of St Paul in the top left quarter. This was introduced in 1826 when new 'Imperial Standards' came into force (Ba…

Cast lead trade weight with '1/4 Ib' in reverse at the centre and a stamp of a letter above, within two concentric rings, beyond which is a legend of letters, the maker's name or the company name, within a circular border, which are too worn to be made out, and in reverse, but perhaps 'Q R' in one section and 'O L V' in another. The weight of the object is 65.26 g which equates to 2.3 ounces. These weights were made by using a good bronze or iron weight (with a rim) as a mould, into which molten lead was poured. They generally date from the 19th century, when the lead weights so pro…

An incomplete cast lead-alloy weight, probably home-made/unofficial, dating from the post-medieval or early modern period, i.e. c. AD1600-1800. The reverse is plain and shows that the weight was roughly cast whilst the obverse displays lettering withing two concentric circles. It is mirror-writing and it is not possible to make out the writing in the outer circle. However, the central writing reads '[1/2]lb'. It is very similar to two lead weights recorded under LANCUM-1440E4 and LANCUM-0FA5A3. The artefact is incomplete due to old breaks. Dimensions: Diameter: 36.05mm, thickness: 3…
