Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Sefton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object has a flat base, bulbous body and long tubular neck. At the top of the neck the object flattens out forming a rim. The mouth of the object has been damaged. A circular hole runs through the length of the object and its use as a vessel would therefore be impractical. The hole measures 4.5mm in width. Above the base of the object the lower body is decorated with two transverse rows of grooves in the form of rope-work. Possible functions for the object may be as a votive offering representing a vessel, or a toy. The light …

A copper alloy 'onion-shaped' knop of uncertain date. The object is oval in plan with a flattened top in the centre of which is a circular scar measuring 3mm in diameter. From the flattened top the object tapers in width towards the base which has a flat circular projection which appears to be incomplete and may have broken away from a larger object such as a brooch. This measures 3mm in diameter. The object is decorated with c.22 moulded ridges which run down the body of the object. The remains of gilding are visible between the ridges. The object has a mid-green patina. The funct…

A copper alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object consists of a central solid rod with striations on its outer surface. Wrapped around the central rod is an indistinct rounded piece of copper alloy which may be zoomorphic in nature or perhaps in the form of hands clasping the rod. Examined from one angle the clasping copper alloy appears to be a pig, and a frog from another angle while from the front of the object it appears to be clasped hands. The uncertainty of the decoration and incomplete nature of the object makes it difficult to identify correctly and date. Th…

A lead alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object has an oval bowl or bag like base and is D-shaped in cross-section. The object is flattned at the back with several scratches and nicks on the surface. It tapers towards the top where it terminates with an oval opening or neck. The object has a mid-brown patina. It was suggested due to a similar form that the object could be an ampulla however the lack of decoration, handles and the shape of the 'bowl' make this unlikely. Another possibility based on the angle of the object is a lead alloy covering for a foot of a large…

A possible silver coin of post-medieval date. The thickness of one edge of the object suggests that it may have been a coin which has been exposed to fire or deliberately melted down. The resulting 'waste' is undiagnostic and dating is uncertain. Dimensions: 16mm in length, 15mm in width, 4.6g

An incomplete copper alloy object of Post-Medieval date. The object is sub-oval in plan and semi-circular in cross-section. It is decorated with grooves throughout its length on the outer face. The open end of the object terminates with a break. The object is corroded and has traces of a mid-brown patina on the outer face. The object is similar to a Post-Medieval saddle pommel howver is too small to have functioned as such. A saddle pommel would have been riveted onto a wooden protrusion on the front of the frame of the saddle, to which the reins could then be secured. Saddles were…

A cast copper alloy unidentified object of Early Medieval to Medieval date. The object is conical and faceted with an oval base. The object tapers towards the top which is rounded and complete. Four rounded knops decorate each side of the object just below the rounded top. The object is decorated with a series of punched dots forming a border around the bottom edge of the object. Seven punched dots run from this border up two faces of the object to the central knop. The base is undecorated. The object has a dark green patina and is in good condition.

A cast lead alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. The object is circular in plan and conical. There is no decoration on any face of the object. The edges are smooth and rounded. The object may have functioned as a gaming piece or weight, however due to its un-diagnostic nature this cannot be certain. Alternatively it may have been formed as casting waste. The light cream patina is suggestive of an early date however objects such as this were in use from the Roman through to the Post-Medieval period.

An iron rivet runs between attaching both faces together. The object is decorated on each face with a central moulded pannel of rings and diagonal ridges. Three verticle ridges decorate one side of the central pannel.

Treasure Case: 2016 T1015 Description and discussion: A medieval silver-gilt plaque depicting the Agnus Dei. The plaque is rectangular with a plain border around all four edges. In the centre is the Agnus Dei, facing right and supporting a cross. Short incised lines have been used for texture on the lamb's coat and the background is cross-hatched. The plaque is fragmentary. There is a small loss to the area left of the lamb's head which measures 7.8mm. Where the silver has been lost there are two breaks, one runs vertically down the border and the other curves along the lamb's l…

An incomplete lead alloy object of uncertain function. The object is semi-circular in plan and is flat. On one face two circumferential ridges border the object. The opposite face is rough and pitted with two conjoined large circular depressions which measure 14mm in diameter. Due to its undiagnostic nature it cannot be dated closely however the condition of the lead suggests a Medieval to Post-Medieval date is likely. The object may have functioned as a palm guard however these tend to be D-shaped in cross-section allowing them to sit comfortably in the hand. Palm guards were f…

The internal face is undecorated but is ridged to the rear of the external groove. The object has a dark green patina. Due to the fragmentary nature of the object the function and date are unknown however the patina and construction both suggest a medieval to post-medieval date r…

A copper alloy zoomorphic object of uncertain function. The object has a circular perforated fitting the hoop of which is sub-rectangular in cross-section. From this extends a long rectangular sectioned 'neck' with a zoomorphic snake-like terminal. The animal head has an open mouth with tongue projecting and ridged brows. The details of the face are worn. From the opposite side of the hoop an incomplete sub-rectangular projection extends. This may have formed a symmetrical terminal with zoomorphic head when complete.

A fragment of a copper alloy object of uncertain date. The fragment is curved in plan and is oval in cross-section. One face of the object is decorated with a curvilinear or wave-like pattern with each 'wave' facing the opposite way. It is likely that this pattern would have repeated. The object tapers in width at one end measuring 6mm in width and is wider at the opposite end which measures 11mm in width. Dimensions: 15mm in length, 11mm in width, 3mm thick, 2.1g The object has a mid-green patina and both the front and rear of the object is silvered. Due to the fragmentary nat…

A copper alloy and gilded fitting of Medieval date, of uncertain function. The object consists of an arm, which is D-shaped in cross-section, and a semi-circular incomplete 'frame'. The arm flattens towards its terminal end where it turns at a 90 degree angle and terminates with a rounded end which is pierced with a regular circular hole. The hole has an internal diameter of 3mm and probably held a rivet. Towards the other end of the arm is a large rounded 'bossed' rivet which remains in-situ. This measures 4.5mm in width and 5mm in height. The arm then separates and narrows forming a…

A lead alloy object of uncertain type and function. The object is conical with a flat hollow base and rounded top. The object appears to be anthropomorphic in style however is crudely made and it is therefore uncertain if this is a deliberate style or not. Either side of the 'head' are two semi-circular lugs or 'ears'. In the centre of one face of the object is a long pointed triangular projection which may form a possible nose. Either side of this is a single circular pit which may represent eyes however they are uneven with the right (viewed facing) 'eye' being higher than that on t…
