A Post Medieval cast lead alloy watch face from a toy watch dating AD 1700-1750. This is a Forsyth & Egan (2005) Type 8 Design 1: a multi-component watch with a plain case, angular profile and integrally cast pendant loop. The surviving element here is the dial which would have been recessed and supported on an internal flange just below the rim of the case with the rim pushed over the edge of the dial (see LON-98FC10 for a more complete example). The dial plate has a circumferential groove which encloses the chapter ring which is marked with engraved Roman hour numerals I-XII and …

An incomplete lead alloy vesica shaped seal matrix dating to the Medieval period, circa AD 1150-1400. The seal when complete would have been broadly pointed oval (vesica) shaped in profile. The seal has been made in one piece with an integrally moulded suspension loop at the reverse.

The front face is decorated with a central fleur-de-lys design around which is inscribed the legend starting at 12 0'clock: S 'ISAB[ELLE] RELICT h This was probably be used as a personal seal…

Lead alloy toy horse fragment. Hollow cast left hind leg of a horse, probably modelled at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm; patinated inside and out. The size and naturalistic modelling both point to this being part of a Britains toy soldier, probably a cavalryman or a cowboy. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1960. Height: 24.9mm, Width: 13.3mm, Thickness (wall): 1.4mm, Weight: 4.27gms

Lead alloy toy rocket fragment. Cast tail of a solid cast cylindrical or cigar-shaped object with four equidistantly spaced fins at its end. A groove or paired ridges extend longitudinally between fins on opposite sides of the object. This is probably the tail of a toy rocket or aeroplane with a detachable head: a paper percussion cap would fit between the head and the body of the rocket, and would explode when the head made impact. This reporter recalls both rocket and aeroplanes on sale in toyshops of the 1960s; whether there were earlier versions is uncertain. Suggested date: Modern…

Lead alloy toy gun fragment. Hollow cast end of the stock of a toy musket or pistol, with a probably lentoid plain end, and with scrolls of vegetal ornament on its outer side. A finished edge along the upper side may suggest that this is one of two halves joined at a longitudinal seam. Neither such a construction nor the material used here would be suitable for a working miniature weapon taking a charge of black powder. Examples of toy guns from London are attributed to the 17th century. However, the decoration may be wilfully archaic, possibly in allusion to the decorated weaponry of …

A complete but worn and abraded flat lead non-heraldic personal seal matrix of Medieval date c.AD 1200-1350. Description: The matrix is flat and circular in plan and with an incomplete suspension loop at the top of the reverse side formed by a cast lug at the top of a raised ridge. The suspension loop is broken across its width. On the front is an engraved central eight pettled flower. This is surrounded by a legend which starts at twelve o'clock and runs retrograde (anti-clockwise) around the matrix so it would appear the right way round when used. It reads "*S'RICARDI.FIL.h'ERICI'. …

A Medieval lead alloy uniface sewn token, dating to the early 13th century. Mitchiner & Skinner (1983:68/Pl.1 no.2-14) illustrate similar tokens. The token is ampulliform with two elongated perforations with which the token could be attached or sewn onto a garment. The token has an uncertain design consisting of a cross with two a circle with central nipple either side all within a beaded border. Mitchiner & Skinner (1983:46) write "Many forms of pictorial image on these tokens also appear on English circular thirteenth-century tokens; but the designs on circular tokens tend to…

Lead alloy toy watch fragment. The central dial and a small part of the case of a toy watch, modelled on one side only. The hour and minute hands point in opposite directions (as at 6 O'clock) in a plain dial face of estimated diameter c.14mm. The outer field around the dial bears closely-spaced radial lines and an indeterminate decorative margin including paired leaves. This resembles the cheap Type 4 toy watches from London (Forsyth and Egan 2005, 337-384), with a small dial face indicating an early date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1620-1650. Estimated original diameter: c.33mm,…

A slightly worn and patinated Post-Medieval pewter/lead-alloy 'Lyon counter' token, dating AD 1575-1600. North 1991, pg140, No.2062. Measurements: Diameter: 20.51mmThickness: 1.1mm, Weight: 3.21g, Discussion: According to North (1991, 140), it is likely that rather than being used as tokens, these objects were probably used as political medalets or counters (North 1991, 140). Despite not being a coin this token type has been designated as no. 2062 by North (1991 Vol II, p. 140).

Lead alloy brooch. Cast oval frame of thickness 1.2mm with a series of juxtaposed lugs set in pairs and projecting from a plain border. The lugs bear pelleted detail, and at least some represent flowers. On the back, each pair - there were possibly five in a cinquefoil arrangement - has a low central rib to reinforce it, and a pair of strips of ribbons of width 2.4mm and 2.7mm may have related to fastening of the object. The centre of the brooch is empty. This might have held a stone, or may have been viewed against a coloured backing. This appears typical of cheap jewellery of the 13t…

Lead alloy figurine. Hollow-cast figurine representing a crowned woman, probably the Virgin Mary. The figure is, from what remains, in static pose, and naturalistically modelled at a scale of c.1:25. A crown which appears plain because of the loss of upper ornaments is set over a veil from which tresses of hair emerge at the front. An oval face bears plain features including brows and nose with an oval chin. A long smooth neck rises from the high plain hem of an undergarment which is vertically pleated. The prominent margins of a mantle overlie this. A sash or broad girdle limits the p…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete post-Medieval lead alloy circular double-sided token (c. 1500-c. 1850). Powell Type 2/2. The token has raised initial letters: ? 'A' on one side and ? 'W' on the other side. This token is grey with buff deposits. Diameter: 15.3mm. Weight: 2.74g. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be post-Medieval in date (1500-1850), those which seem to mimic Medieval penny desi…
