  • Thumbnail image of LANCUM-5646EB

Record ID: LANCUM-5646EB
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead button or possible fabric weight of uncertain date, possibly Post Medieval, circa AD 1600 - 1800. The object is circular in form and has two closely spaced small holes off-centre suggesting that it was used as a button. The object is similar in size and weight to SWYOR-495286 discovered in Yorkshire which is suggested as possibly too large and heavy to fasten clothing, so may have been a hem weight for a large item such as curtains. The diameter is 19mm and the weight 12.38g.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast lead-alloy weight of medieval to post-medieval date, c.AD 1300 - 1600. The weight is conical with a flat top and base and was likely formed by pouring molten lead into a thimble casing then allowing it to cool. Although this object has been described as a weight, it may also be a gaming piece. The length is 27mm, the width is 12mm. Thimbles have been in common use in England from the 14th century onwards and Geoff Egan (2010, p.265) states that no medieval thimble indisputably dating from before the 14th century has been found in England.

Circular flat-cylindrical lead-alloy weight probably dating from the late medieval to post-medieval, c. AD1500-1800. The weight has a whole in it possibly meant for attachment. The weight may have originally been used for 8 ounces. Egan (2001) illustrates a similar example on page 312, Fig.232, No.981, which is dated to the 13th century. Bailey (1993) illustrates similar examples of home-made lead weights used by traders on page 29, and a free-standing weight with a raised edge on page 33, No.43. The diameter is 52mm and the weight 233.17g.
