Object type: BIRD FEEDER
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late medieval (AD 1540-1700) lead bird feeder, of similar style to BH-85F197 and LANCUM-901915 The object is a flared rim vessel of roughly 45 mm in height and 72 mm in absolute width, though this is probably not an accurate reflection of its original proportions as it is now compressed and distorted. A flattened back and two possible suspension points may indicate it was attached to a flat surface above the bottom of the bird enclosure, though the base is also flat enough for it to have been freestanding. Egan (2005) notes that similar objects, excavated in London, were in their o…
