Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead fragment, possibly from the tip of a leg of a small cast vessel, possibly a posnet or skillet, of probable post-medieval date. The object is abraded, but seems to be formed from two conjoined ribs, giving an overall D-shape section, there is no well defined foot, the object tapers to a simple blunt point. The surface texture would indicate sand casting. Butler and Green (2003) suggest that this simple form became common in sand cast 18th and 19th century skillets. Length 19 mm, width 18.1 tapering to 11.2 mm Weight 10.4 g

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy book clasp of medieval date (c. 1350 - c. 1450). The object is formed of a flat semi-eliptical plate with a central circular rivet hole. The strap fitting element of the clasp is missing. From comparison to similar objects (e.g. ESS-7B2A4D, DENO-0D92E8, DENO-D04BE4) this would probably have been a strap bar held in two loops. The terminal is also missing, only a small segment remains, extending 2.5 mm from the plate and showing evidence of a drilled hole. The surface of the plate has 14 incised dots, more or less equally spaced around the periphery. These …

Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post medieval lead cloth seal (c. 1500 - c. 1700). The object is the rivet disc of probably a two-disc set, there is an old diametic break and approximately one third of the disc is missing. The disc shows a steep sided crown with three interior crosses, over what appears to be the initials T N - this interpretation is not certain because most of the letters are missing due to the break. It is possible that this is an alnage seal of Thomas Napper, who appears in the alnage tables for Gloucestershire in 1689. The reverse of the disc is undecorated and has the flattened riv…

A cast copper alloy leg fragment from a cooking vessel, probably a couldron or posnet of medieval to early post medieval date (c. 1200 - c. 1650) The leg has a trapezoidal cross section, it tapers slightly downward and terminates in an out-turned, pad-like foot. There is a thick green patina and some pitting. Butler, Green and Payne (FRG datasheet 41, 2009) observe that this form seems to have been in widespread use in the medieval period, but early 17th century examples are also known.

A cast lead object, probably a post medieval palm-guard. The object is plano-convex and semi-piriform in shape. The tip is bent upwards, probably this is recent damage as there is a gouge showing the metallic colour of the lead . The rest of the surface is dull dark grey or has a dusty buff patina. The shape of the object allows it to fit in the palm of the hand. Such a palm guard would have been used by leather workers to protect the hand when forcing pointed tools through heavy duty textile or leather, and there is a deep and apparently old (from the patina) scratch on the flat surfa…

A fragment comprising the foot and part of the leg of a cast copper alloy couldron of probable post medieval date. The leg is formed from three conjoined ribs, with the cental rib being thicker. This creates a broadly triangular cross-section. The inner surface is concave and the leg terminates downward in a flared, paw-like foot separated from the leg by a collar. The base of the foot is concave. Buttler, Green and Payne, (FRG datasheet 41 2009) suggest a 16th - 17th century date for this form. Length 72.9 mm. Width 38 mm. Thickness 10.6 mm. Weight.187.9 g

A cast copper alloy guard from a quillion dagger of medieval date (c. 1380 - c. 1390). The quillons both have a broad rounded terminal and a tapering cylindrical cross-section. In the centre is a boss with an asymetrical sub-triangular tang-hole, suggesting a single edged blade. There is an angled line at the base of each quillon where it meets the boss. A very similar guard can be seen on a dagger illustrated in the London Museum Medieval Catalogue (1940, p. 39, Plate VI, no. 2), dated to c. 1380 - 1390 by comparison to a dagger depicted on a tomb effigy (see p. 41, B325) Overall len…

A complete iron horse shoe of late medieval to early post-medieval date (c. 1350 - c. 1700) The shoe has a broad web (46 mm at the toe, 33 mm at the heel) and is 130 mm wide. In overall shape, it matches the late medieval form described by Clark (1986, p. 3, fig. 8). Four nails are in situ in sequence on the branch of the shoe (possibly more are present on the quarter but due to corrosion of the plate surface they are not distinct). There is a calkin on the right heel, none seems to be present on the left. Assuming the calkin to protrude down towards the road surface, the whole plate i…

A lead shield-shaped trade weight of medieval date (c. AD 1200 - 1400). The face bears an inverted fleur-de-lis, with no crown. In the centre of the reverse is a corroded iron stub, probably of a suspension loop. Briggs and Withers (2000, p. 34) discuss the possibility of unofficial copies of such designs continuing after the official version had become obsolete. However, although abraded and worn, with some deep dents and scratches, the weight appears to have been well made and is probably 'official'. The weight of the object, 450g, is close to the value of the Avoirdupois pound. Len…
