A complete and slightly misshapen post-Medieval lead or lead-alloy whirligig or buzz disc/wheel of possible 17th to 18th century date. The toy is circular in plan and sub-rectangular in cross-section. It consists of a disc with a serrated outer edge and two string holes at the centre. The 32 uneven teeth (or cogs) have been crudely made, possibly by chopping or shearing. Both sides have been decorated with randomly situated incised parallel 'stokes'. The 'strokes' are mainly in groups of four or five. One group has been over-marked to form cross-hatching. The object largely has an ev…

An incomplete Post-Medieval (AD 1650-1800) toy pistol. The toy consists of the butt,which is decorated with diagonal lines, barrel and lock which is cast in an elaborate foliate style. The long cylindrical barrel is hollow and the end appears to be missing. It is cast in a mininum of two pieces, with the butt then attached to the trigger section; however it is possible that this is a later repair. It measures 80.2 mm long, 21.5 mm wide, 11.2 mm thick and weighs 41.6 g. The form resembles that of toy petronels or cavalry pistols reported from London, where a 17th-century date is sug…

Incomplete lead alloy toy pistol with half of the handle remaining with two iron rivets at the broken end, which would have attached to the iron mechanism used to operate the pistol.

Solid cast lead handle from the butt end of a toy pistol with two circular apertures at the broken end, within an expanded collar, which would have attached to the body of the gun. The central aperture is 4 mm in diameter, and judging from a complete example recorded in SWYOR-4634F5, the aperture would have held an iron rod to attach it to the barrel of the gun. The complete example has another matching collar at the end of the barrel, and a trigger mechanism to enable the gun to be fired. The handle has been decorated on both sides with three moulded curved lines, defined by four rec…

A lead-alloy object in the form of a forward-facing human mask. The flat-sectioned face is of heavily stylised, elongated, appearance, the straight sides of the face converging for two thirds of its length, after which they become parallel, terminating in a rounded chin. The facial features are relief-moulded. An elongated 'S-shaped' curve represents the nose, and divides two ring-shaped eyes, above each of which is a curved eyebrow. The oval, wide open mouth creates the impression that the figure is expressing shock or surprise. A moulded rim extends around the perimeter of the fa…

A large post medieval cast copper alloy composite possible pipe tamper with moving parts. This object is not certainly a tobacco pipe tamper as the lower projection has a rectangular section; pipe tampers tend to be rounded or oval. The object depicts a bawdy representation of a copulating couple who stand facing each other. The couple stand on a base from which projects a handle. Both partners are depicted in a somewhat naive and un-naturalistic fashion; the lower limbs of the male in particular are out of proportion to the torso, and the head is tiny in comparison to the remainder o…

A fragment of Post Medieval lead alloy toy chair, dating to the late 17th century. The object consists of a cast rectangular panel.

Two lead alloy shoes or feet possibly part of a toy, possibly a puppet, dating from the Post-Medieval period. Each shoe has a circular sectioned iron rod projecting up through the ankle which would probably have attached to the leg of the toy. The base of the iron rod is visible at the sole of the shoe. Each shoe has a rounded heal which narrows before widening at the toes and then tapering to a rounded 'toe'. One shoe is broken diagonally across the toes and has a longer iron rod. Each shoe is decorated with two vertical rows of pellets which may represent buttons or eyelets. A mould…

A post medieval cast copper alloy toy cannon. The cannon is 100mm in length and measures 31.59mm across the trunnions and 16.68mm across the cascabel. Unfortunately the weight was not recorded. The cannon has a raised band and an incuse groove behind the muzzle, an incuse groove forward of the trunnions, and a touch hole forward of the cascobel. The lower side of the cannon has been impressively torn between the trunnions and the raised band from the force of an accidental explosion. This cannon is as large as the largest recorded by Egan 2005 (79-84). Dating remains uncertain but …
