Record ID: BERK-F4DD6C
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead alloy token or tally of post-medieval date. The token bears the faint remains of a raised design of a grid pattern of diagonal lines on one side and the initials R D on the other (Powell Type 22). It has been suggested that such grid designs may represent ploughing lines. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as use as tallies, gaming pieces, 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 (c. AD 1500 - 1850), although this e…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead alloy toy. Solid cast semi-flat toy farm animal, representing a large quadruped, probably a horse, naturalistically modelled at a scale of c.1:40, though now lacking its legs and head. Extensive traces of black paint remain. The semi-flat form of toy figures was characteristic of Continental, particularly German, manufacture before the First World War. The heyday of the toy farm, however, was between the Wars, and the survival of paint may suggest a more recent, earlier 20th-century, date. Suggested date: Modern, 1930-1939. Height: 16mm, Length: 29.9mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: …

Fragment of a lead-alloy object of uncertain identity, of post-medieval to modern date (c. 1700 - 1930 AD), probably a toy model. The fragment appears to have slotted onto something.

The front face is ornately decorated in moulded relief. A raised band runs transversally across the wider end of the fragment, decorated with two parallel transverse ridges with vertical ridges running between the two.

A lead alloy spindle whorl of medieval to early post-medieval date (c. 1300-1500). The object is circular in plan with a central circular perforation, the internal diameter of which is 7mm. Only one face is decorated with moulded lines some of which appear to be curved resembling possible letters. This possible lettering appears to have no pattern and is indecipherable and may form a runic or psudo-runic script. If not entirely fictional and imitative, it is possible that the runes may relate to an individual's name, or perhaps are a religious inscription. However it may be that the '…
