Lead alloy Toy Gun. Fragment from the cast stock of a miniature toy musket. This toy was hollow, probably made from two matching halves; an internal flange may relate either to their fitting together or to the location of a separate trigger mechanism.

Copper alloy, possibly with white metal plating Toy Cannon. Cast gun barrel representing the barrel of a smoothbore field piece of 17th to early 19th-century style with a bore of c.4mm measured at a slightly flared muzzle, with a pair of circumferential ribs either side of its touch hole and an elongated cascabel. A splash of white metal here may be relict plating, though it might equally be from a melted lead shot as would be fired from such a gun had both been in a fire. Further indistinct traces of circumferential decoration include those ribs close to the probably central positi…

Lead alloy Toy. Hollow cast object of sub-triangular form, tapering unevenly from its torn and open end, where a thickness of 1.5-2.5mm is revealed, to an apparently closed and solid end which has broken in antiquity. Cast decoration of hatched or lattice work occupies probably longitudinal zones on either side, with further curlicue decoration above and below a notional centre line; on one side there is a further textured projection. This object may be the stock from a non-functioning toy arquebus or musket of late 16th to 17th-century form. It might alternatively be a scabbard for…

A cast lead toy dating to the post medieval period. The object is part of a toy clock or watch. The object is semi-circular in plan as much of it has broken away in the past but half of the clock face is visible in the centre with the numbers in Roman numerals and the hands of the clock still visible. Around the face of the clock there is a border of pellets and beyond this a wider border which has some floriate style decoration. There is evidence for a break running around the edge of the object which makes it difficult to calculate the original size. Several other lead toy watches…
