Object type: FURNITURE FITTING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete, lead, furniture fitting, possibly part of a drawer handle, AD.1700-1900. The object is in the form of a large flower, possibly a stylised rose, with central pellets. Below the flower, are two petals. The flower stem and petal emerge from a circular 'pot' at the bottom. The whole piece has been formed into a S curve when viewed side on and the rear of the object has significant iron staining perhaps suggesting that it was connected via na iron rivet or nail to a piece of furniture. The S shape, if intentional, is suggestive of a drawer handle. Though, it could also simpl…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead alloy object, possibly a palm guard from the Post-Medieval period dating to c.AD 1500-1800. The object is an irregular oval in plan, and irregularly plano-convex in section. An irregular oval depression is visible off-centre on the top. The surface of the object is cracked all over perhaps suggesting that it has been in a fire.

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A medieval lead spindle whorl or weight. The weight is flat, circular, and has a central hole measuring 11mm in diameter. The front of the weight bears the letters IhC (the first three letters of the name Jesus in Greek). The hole is placed so that it removes a large portion of the centre of the inscription. This might suggests that it is a reused item; however, the reverse appears to have once had a moulded inscription running around the central hole. While the letters are largely illegible, two reversed 'N's are visible. The item weighs 40.29g, has a diameter of 36mm, and thickness of 8mm.
