A complete copper-alloy stacking trade weight of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1500 - 1800. The weight is circular in plan with sides which taper from the top to the base giving a sub-trapezoidal profile. The object is worn rendering any detail illegible though a circular recess at the centre of the inside base can be seen. The metal has a mid-brown patina and is worn. The weight is 24.4mm in diameter, 9.8mm tall, 2.4mm thick and weighs 12.9g. This is likely to be a single example from a nested set of differing sizes and weights which were used to weigh gold and silver in the form of coin…

A cast lead alloy trade weight dating from the Medieval period, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is shield shaped and has a raised shield shaped area on the front face. The central design is of a crown over a fleur in relief. The weight has a mass of 213gm (7 1/2oz) so was probably intended as an 8oz weight. It has, however suffered some damage to the pointed base and the upper corners. The weight is 52.7mm long, 41.5mm wide and 15.0mm thick. It has a patchy cream and grey patina. Similar weights are discussed and illustrated in Biggs and Withers, 2000, Lead Weights: The David Rogers Collecti…

Complete copper-alloy circular trade weight of post-medieval date (c. 1500 - 1800 AD). The weight is circular in plan and rectangular in section. The outer edge on both sides is slightly stepped, resulting in the appearance of two concentric circles. There is a design stamped in the centre of one side, probably a crown; this is a common design on weights of this sort (see for instance, LVPL-3B9722). The surface of the object is worn and slightly corroded and the stamp is not easily visible. The object is 19.90mm in diameter, 3.95mm in thickness and weighs 8.4g. Further parallels recor…

A Post Medieval cast copper alloy trade weight from the reign of James I (AD 1603 - 1625) or James II (AD 1685 - 1688). The weight is circular and flat with no rim. The front has a central dimple and the back has file marks across it. It is stamped with a Crowned I (for James I or II) at 6 o'clock and an ewer (for the founders company) at 11 o'clock. There may have been sword stamped at 1 o'clock, this area is now very worn. It is 13.7mm in diameter and 3.2mm thick. It weighs 2.93gm. It was probably originally an eighth (0.125oz) of an ounce (two drams) with some weight lost to corrosion.

A lead artefact, probably a standing weight of post-Medieval date, AD 1500 - 1800. It is in the form of a hexagonal cone with a blunt, rounded apex and a flat base with a small, circular depression in the centre. Two opposing faces are stamped, just above the base, with small figures giving a possible date of 1608. One stamp is the opposite way up to the other. Higher up the dated faces is a further impressed design, of either a heart or a spade symbol or a leaf. This symbol is also marked on two other faces. It too appears both ways up. The remaining two faces are plain. The artefact…

A cast lead weight of Medieval date, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is shield shaped, with rounded corners. The upper surface is slightly convex and the underside concave. The upper surface is decorated with a single, narrow groove mirroring the shape of the weight, forming a narrow border, within which are traces of a fleur-de-lys design in low relief. There is also a deep, U shaped groove in the centre of the upper edge, resulting in the weight becoming heart shaped. Unusually for a weight it has been penetrated,almost in the centre, by a ferrous rivet, or length of thick wire, suggesting …

A cast lead alloy trade weight dating from the Medieval period, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is shield shaped and has a raised shield shaped area n the front, but any design is now illegible. There is an unusually shaped depression in the centre of the reverse, which may be the remains of a authentication mark. There is also a patch or iron corrosion near the lower point on the reverse, and a magnet suggests there is an iron plug here, possible to fine tune the weight. The weight has a mass of 219gm (7 3/4oz) so was probably intended as an 8oz weight. It has, however suffered some damage; …

Copied from SWYOR-E1D252 An undatable (but likely to be Medieval to Post-Medieval, about AD 1100 - 1800) conical lead alloy standing weight, with a hole sideways through the apex. It stands at 29.9mm in height with a base diameter of (max) 24.6mm and weighs 61.2g, so was probably intended to be a 2oz weight. The base is slightly concave and there is a small depression at the centre. There are no marking or designs on the weight, but it is somewhat pockmarked and is damaged at the base. It has a well-developed cream coloured patina. This weight is similar to SWYOR-E1D252 and to HAMP-F…

Copper-alloy post-medieval circular trade weight, dating to the period c. 1558 - 1603 AD. The weight is circular in plan and rectangular in section, with a raised rim on the upper face. The upper face is stamped with the sword of St Paul and an ewer, denoting that the weight was made by the Founders Company in London. Also stamped are the crowned letters EL, attesting that the weight was approved during the reign of Elizabeth I. These motifs are arranged around a central sub-circular depression with central dot. The back of the weight is flat and betrays linear score marks where the ob…

A lead perforated weight of probably Post Medieval to Modern date, about AD 1500 - 1900. It is flat and rectangular in section, and an elongated octagon in plan. There is a keyhole shaped hole through the weight at one end (rounded at one end and narrower and rectangonal at the other); it is not clear whether it was always intended to be this shape, or whether it has been worn by suspension on a loop or rope. The edges and corners of the weight are worn and rounded. This may be from water damage, since the weight was found near a river. This has led to speculation that the weight may h…

A shield shaped iron artefact, possibly a form of trade weight of Medieval date, about AD 1250 - 1500. The object is shield shaped in plan with a flat top, curved sides and a sharply pointed base. It is rectangular in section. The surface of the object has undergone some corrosion and a layer has partially flaked away so that any markings that may have been present are no longer visible; the object is otherwise in good condition. It is 63.9mm long, 39.6mm wide and 15.9mm thick. It weighs 122.32gm (4.31oz). It has a dark brown patina. Compare another iron weight: SF-6A6240.

A crudely cast lead artefact, possibly a weight of possibly Medieval to post-Medieval date, about AD 1150 - AD 1600. It is broadly octangonal in plan, with a uneven base, a projecting lump preventing it sitting flat. The sides are angled, so the upper face is smaller than the base. The upper face has a deep angular depression in the top making it concave. The object has rough sides and a thin grey patina. It is 22.9mm in diameter and 16.6mm high. It weighs 45.69gm. Compare KENT-DC651B.

A cast lead pendant weight, perhaps a net weight of probable Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1500. It is rectangular in section and tapers to a point at one end. At the other end is a crude integral suspension loop with an oval perforation, the the weight tapers in thickness to a wide point. A similar object, but with more design features than this crude example, is illustrated on page 311 of Medieval Households where it is suggested to be a net weight, plumb bob or ship's sounding weight. There are also numerous examples on the database, usually suggested to be net weights for fishing …

Lead alloy weight of probable medieval to post-medieval date, c.AD 1200 - 1600. The weight is broadly barrel shaped and is comprised of a rolled sheet of metal which results in an aperture throughout its interior. There is a brown-grey patina on the surface. It is likely that this was a net or line weight. Rolled lead can also be curse tablets but this cannot currently be verified for this object. The length is 40mm, the width is 10mm and the weight 26.37g.

A lead button or possible fabric weight of uncertain date, possibly Post Medieval, circa AD 1600 - 1800. The object is circular in form and has two closely spaced small holes off-centre suggesting that it was used as a button. The object is similar in size and weight to SWYOR-495286 discovered in Yorkshire which is suggested as possibly too large and heavy to fasten clothing, so may have been a hem weight for a large item such as curtains. The diameter is 19mm and the weight 12.38g.
