Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Derbyshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible complete copper alloy fitting of unknown use and of uncertain date. The item consists of a tongue-shaped copper tube (slightly open at the join) containing what appears to be lead solder with possible organic remains (eg. wood or leather). The exterior of the copper-alloy tube also appears to contain some organic matter, such as grass, but this may be as a result of the corrosion process. Possible suggested uses for this item are ferrule or simple strapend. Due to the simple construction of the item, however, it remains undated.
