Handmade bone toy whistle and teething toy of 17th or 18th century date. The whistle is sub-cylindrical, piriform in cross section with a semi-circular front and a back which comes to a distinct point with a ridge running down the length. This ridge thickens towards the cnetre and thins towards both ends, although one (the foot) is narrower than the other (the head). Circular holes are visible in both ends of the whistle and although filled with mud it is assumed it is hollow through out. It is probable there was a separate mouthpiece at the head with fipple block etc, now missing, th…

Incomplete cast lead soldier, lying in prone position with butt of gun raised to right shoulder. The butt is straight suggesting it is c.1800 in date or later. The figure also wears a hat and a backpack with a rolled blanket at its top. The hat looks like a 'shako' hat, or cylindrical military cap with a visor, that was worn by soldiers all over Europe during the 19th century. Bailey (2002) illustrates similar lead toy soldiers holding guns on page 63, figs.8 & 9, which are dated from the 1950s.

Late Post Medieval to Modern copper alloy toy gun. The firing mechanism slot suggests that this was a spring loaded gun & fired rod like missiles akin to matchsticks. The barrel is decorated with raised cross hatching, the forestock with impressed cross hatching, & there is foliated decoration on the shoulder stock. Unusual in that it is made of a copper alloy, albeit a poor quality one, rather than lead or lead alloy. It has been suggested that this puts into the earlier part of the probable dating period. Probably dates to between c1850 & c1939 AD. The length is 49mm, width 14mm,…
