Lead alloy lid. Hollow-cast lid in the form of a naturalistically modelled head of a clean-shaven and short-haired jockey or postilion wearing a peaked cap and a stiff upright vertically lined collar with a diagonally sloping edging. The cap is divided into segments, either quarters or eighths, perhaps corresponding to the parti-coloured design of a racing strip. The collar frames an aperture of diameter c.9mm which the lid would have closed. These objects are relatively commonly reported from northern Lincolnshire. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Height: 29.1mm, Width: 20.4…

Copper alloy lid fragment. Cast concavo-convex domed lid from a sugar sprinkler. The wall of the dome bears eight vertical rows of three drilled apertures of diameter 1.8mm, with two adjacent rows sharing one top hole as a result of their imprecise spacing. A collared knop of acorn form is set on the top, and the lower edge is expanded with a flat base and an outer flange to clasp the wall of the separate lower part of the object [now absent]. Refined sugar became available with the flourishing of the plantation slave economy of the Caribbean, and became the subject of an early consume…

Lead possible lid. Cast concavo-convex object with a hemispherical hollow within surrounded by an upstanding flange, a form suggesting this object may have capped a small cylinder. The outer surface is flattened on top and one side and is elsewhere bubbled and partly melted, though as these effects have left no trace within, they may represent an episode which occurred while the object was still attached to whatever it closed. The metal retains a grey tint, indicating a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Diameter: 24.5mm, Height: 12.3mm, Thickness (wall)…

Lead alloy possible lid handle. Cast plano-convex discoid button with a possibly drilled central aperture of diameter 4mm. Both sides are coated with a semi-matt black material. Lightly chipped around the edge. The black coating might hint at an early post-medieval date; however, the placement of the hole and the overall regularity of the object both point to a later era. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1900. Diameter: 22mm, Thickness: 4.2mm, Weight: 9.54gms

Copper alloy lid. Plain cast concavo-convex lid for a cylindrical vessel, with a pair of integrally cast lugs [one lost] with a drilled hole of diameter c.3mm for its hinged operation. A thick black tarry material coats the inside of the lid, with traces on the outer surface as well. This might suggest the user of the vessel was perhaps to hold or pour pitch. This might be required for a diverse range of activities, from farming or veterinary practice through to minor works on a building. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Diameter: 33mm, Thickness: 2.1mm, Weight: 28.05gms

Lead probable lid, as kindly suggested by the finder. Cast thin biconvex disc, with a smoothed convex face on one side, and a rougher convexity surrounded by a flat rim or flange with a slightly turned edge on the other, the latter features suggesting this might have fitted on the end of a cylinder. The lack of patina or other surface damage tends to point to a recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval to Modern, 1850-1950. Diameter: 33.1mm, Thickness: 7.3mm, Weight: 34.16gms

A Post-Medieval, or Modern, copper-alloy Lid. It is currently unknown what it would have been a lid of. The lid is square shaped with eight circular pellets (two of which are missing) surrouding an oval shaped rope design. Each of the pellets is surrounded by a dotted pattern, as is the perimeter of the surface. The square shape is bent upwards and some edges are almost flat. Traces of the original bronze colour remain on the inside.

A complete cast lead lid from a vessel of late Post-Medieval to early modern date. The lid is circular with raised sides to the reverse.
