Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An lead alloy object of uncertain function. The object is circular in plan and is D-shaped in cross-section. The flat face is rough and uneven with no visible pitting. Due to its undiagnostic nature it cannot be dated closely however the condition of the lead suggests a Post-Medieval date is likely. The object may have functioned as a palm guard however there are no diagnostic features. Palm guards were for use by a leather worker to protect the palm whilst stitching. Bailey (1995, 64-65) dates such objects to the 17th century onwards.

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…

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…

An incomplete lead alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object is sub-rectangular in plan and cross-section.

An incomplete lead alloy impression of a coin. The impression in the object is of a penny of George III, (1760-1820). The legend reads GEORBIUS III D G REX; surrounding the laureate bust of the king facing right. The reverse of the object is undecorated. The object has a raised rim.

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 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 lead alloy object of uncertain date and function. The object consists of four conjoined oval projections each with a raised central pellet. The outer edges of the object are undulating and the rear is uneven and irregular. The object appears to be an unfinished peace where the edges have not been filed down and the ovals left un-separated (if they were intended to be separated) however its function is unknown. Another possibility is that it a cast jet with the runners removed and therefore is casting waste. The object has a smooth mid-white patina. Dimensions: 54mm in len…

A lead alloy object of uncertain function and date. The object is D-shaped in plan and is rectangular in cross-section. One face of the object appears to show a moulded representation of a stag's head facing left. However the stag is not well defined and may have occurred by chance due to wear and corrosion as opposed to being an intentional motif. The rear of the object is undecorated. The object has a mid-greyish brown patina and is in poor condition. Dimensions: 20.93mm in length, 27.15mm in width, 5.58mm thick, 9.6g.

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.

A cast lead alloy object of unceratin function and date. The object is sub-circular in plan and oval in cross-section. At the top of the object is a central projection which is oval in cross-section.

Projecting from either side of the possible incomplete loop are two curved pointed triangular projections (four in total). The projections curve towards the central attachment. Each face of the object is decorated with lines of raised moulded pellets. A casting seeem remains around the edge of the object below…

An unidentified lead alloy object, of uncertain date. The object is rectangular in plan and flat. It is stamped with the Roman numeral or letter V in the centre through which there is a crack. The rear of the object is undecorated. It has a light brown patina. The object may have functioned as a Post-Medieval cloth seal which were often rectangular; however although the upper edge is incomplete, there is no evidence of attachment. Another possibility is that it was metal working debris used as a practice piece.
