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…

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…

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.
