The axis bar and spring are preserved but the pin is lost. The spring and pin are formed of copper alloy wire turned seven times to form the spring and secured by an external chord to a rearward facing hook positioned at the midpoint on the upper edge of the reverse.

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large broadly triangular piece of iron of uncertain function or date. The iron fragment is hammer worked and is broadly D shaped in cross section. It is pierced in four places - at the apex, twice on the base and singly at the midpoint. The surface is irregular and the reverse face has several areas of spalling and corrosion. The artefact is recorded due to the upper surface seeming to have a series of interlaced designs along the midpoint / spine. This interpretation is uncertain due to condition. Given the form and shape it is possible that this is from a decorative hinge from eith…

A cast leaded copper alloy fitting of uncertain function and date. It is broken into two parts although the two ends conjoin to form a single broken artefact. The fitting is broadly rectangular in plan - although it is much distorted in plan and profile. At the centre of one of the broken parts a rectangular lozenge headed element extends. It is uncertain if this is functional or decorative. There are no drilled holes or fixing points present; likewise there is no applied or incised decoration. The metal is a mid-grey green colour with a corroded surface patina. A direct parallel has…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MODERN
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy 'fob' seal of late Georgian or Victorian date (1750-1850). The seal is formed with a rectangular glass intaglio, rectangular machine pressed body with an applied small suspension loop. It is likely that the body of the setting is hollow and it is decorated with a machine pressed geometric design which has been silvered / tinned. The impression face of the matrix is formed from a cut purple glass intaglio. This is well cut and depicts the laureate crowned head of a youthful women facing right. The lady has curled hair which is gathered at the nape of the neck and a r…

Cast copper alloy military tunic / cuff button made by Mill's Co. of London. The reverse face is concave and corroded - the loop is lost. Cast around the external edge is MILL'S & CO // LONDON.

Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
One lead alloy musket shot / ball of post medieval 1600-1800 date. The shot is sub-spherical in shape with a relatively even cut and scratched surface. The shot has had the casting seam and spurs from the mould removed. It is a light grey colour with a relatively thick surface patina. One face has been flattened through impact / use. Similar shot have been dated to the later post medieval period however the date range should extend into the early modern period as similar projectiles were used in firearms throughout this period. Musket balls are discussed in Courtney's "Small Arms Acces…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval or post medieval date (1300 - 1800). The weight is sub-circular in plan, is sub-triangular in profile and conical in form. There is no suspension loop although a single circular hole 4.0mm pierces the weight vertically. The weight is a mid-grey colour with an even patina that covers all surfaces. It has been marked and abraded in the soil; this has caused the weight to become asymmetrical. Similar standing weights have been dated to the medieval and post medieval periods. The weight measures 19.7mm wide, 18.7mm thick and is 22.8mm hi…

A lead post medieval casting debris fragment from the casting of window came dating to the period c. AD 1600 - 1700. The fragment comes from the upper part of the mould and comprises the casting well from which descends three runners or jets. In form the fragment is irregular but broadly trapezoidal. Each of the three runners is H-shaped in section. The upper surface has a recessed depression created by metal shrinkage during the casting process and a folded 'skirt' to one side. There is a casting seam visible on both of the short sides. By reference to similar waste from London a 17t…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy enamelled heraldic harness mount / stud of probable 14th-century date. The front of the mount is sub-triangular (shield-shaped) in plan and sub-rectangular in cross-section. The edges of the shield are slightly bevelled. A single pierced hole has been cut through the mi-point of the shield and probably held a small pin to fix the mount either to a box, piece of furniture or a piece of harness equipment. The design on the front of the shield is incomplete due to the loss of much of the inlaid enamel and applied tinned or silvered surface. What remains comprises a chequ…

County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Rim sherd of a thick walled earthen ware vessel of probable late medieval date (1350-1500). This sherd is relatively large and thick. It probably comes from the neck of a large storage jar or possibly a jug / flagon. The fabric is relatively soft with a number of angular and sub-angular quartz, grit, iron stone and broken burnt pottery inclusions. The fabric colour is two-tone, the outer a mid orange oxidised and the inner (core) a mid grey. This two-tone effect has been caused by low temperatures within the kiln and is typical of early pottery. The outer surface of the vessel seems sl…

Fragment from the rim of a cast leaded copper alloy turned vessel of probable late medieval to post medieval date (1400 - 1650). The fragment is worn and irregular in plan and bowed in profile. It is likely to be from the rim of a large dish, bowl, or cooking vessel. The vessel fragment is a mid-green colour with a polished patina which survives well on all surfaces. The underside is heavily 'brushed' but patinated suggesting that this occurred in antiquity. Due to the size of the fragment a projected diameter cannot be suggested. The fragment measures 48.1mm wide, 40.0mm high, is 6.0…

An incomplete fragment from a cast copper alloy sheet vessel of probable late medieval to post medieval date (1350 - 1650). The fragment comprises two sheets conjoined with four rolled sheet metal rivets. There is no evidence of roves on the rivets and they have been fixed by hammering their ends flat. Due to the size of the fragment it is difficult to ascertain the size or type of vessel. It is possible that they are from a sheet metal fitting / tool like a skimmer or possibly a strengthening or strap union related to a becket handle. Sandwiched between the leather sheets is what rema…

A complete but slightly abraded cast lead alloy oval shaped seal matrix of medieval date (1200-1400). The seal matrix is sub-oval (oval with a single pointed lower edge) in plan and sub-rectangular in cross section. On the reverse face of the seal is a projecting heavily D shaped lug which is not pierced - it is presumably via this that the seal was appled and removed from the waxen impression. From this lug a single pointed arrow descends which is bisected by a saltire cross - all formed from raised cast ridges and all of which are abraded. The design on the front face of the matrix i…
