An incomplete cast lead alloy toy whirligig or buzz disc of Post Medieval date, circa AD1600-1900. The serrated disc has one sub-circular string hole present and a second forming part of the break line. Each appears to have been drilled from alternate sides. There are currently ten sub-triangular spokes/teeth are present, one of which is folded over and evidence of at least one more now snapped off from this section. This implies that the whole item would have incorporated twenty one or twenty two teeth. The whirligig has a mid grey colour with an uneven light brown patina. Length: 45…

A Post Medieval lead alloy toy watch modified to be a whirligig or buzz-wheel dating to the 18th century. The whirligig has been made from the circular dial plate of a toy pocket watch. The dial plate has a circumferential groove which encloses the chapter ring which is marked with engraved Roman hour numerals I-XII and slashes to indicate the half-hours. A plain inner band encircles the dial centre which is decorated with raised baroque scrolling around two cartouches, the upper inscribed HUX and the lower LONDON. The centre of the dial plate is very worn and only the lower cart…

An incomplete cast pewter toy vessel of post-medieval date. All that remains is the decorative leg of a probable toy ewer or similar. The foot of the object is possibly of the ball and claw type in which a clawed foot clutches a ball but the degree of wear makes this difficult to determine with certainty. An ovate sectioned curving leg extends from the foot and terminates in a wide sub-ovate moulding which would have joined to the vessel body. The metal has a mid greyish-yellow patina and is worn. The toy vessel leg is 20.6mm long, 10.8mm wide, 3.2mm thick and weighs 5.8g.

A Post Medieval lead alloy toy knife probably dating to the 18th century. The blade is long and rounded with a small rounded projection on the tip which may not be deliberate. There is a rounded, ridged section at the junction between the blade and the handle. The handle is oval and decorated on both sides with a geometric pattern. There is a little excess metal around the edges of this toy knife and it appears as if the two halves of the mould were not lined up exactly as there is some overlap between the two halves. Dimensions: length: 57.76mm; width: 5.56mm; thickness: 1.35m…

An incomplete cast lead petronel style toy pistol of post-medieval date. The short circular stock and wide hollow circular barrel remain intact and are decorated with elaborate foliate-like designs. The hammer is denoted by an integrally cast swirl-design with projecting tip, the tip has been lost to an old break. A smaller tube is present within the barrel of the gun which also appears too made of lead. This is possibly part of a firing mechanism which allowed real lead pistol balls to be fired. Guns of this type were based on the 'petronels' matchlock musket of the 16th and 17th ce…

A Post Medieval lead alloy Whirligig. The object consists of a thick (3.2mm) circular disc with coarsely cut sub triangular teeth around the periphery and 2 small holes in the centre. One side of the disc has the raised initials DN perhaps suggesting it was fashioned by reusing a crude lead alloy token. Whirligigs were used as toys in the 17th/18th century and would have comprised of a looped string threaded through the two central holes and held under tension at each end. Alternate pulling and relaxing of the string caused twisting and rapid rotation of the Whirligig. At a critical …
