A Post Medieval lead alloy fragment of an object, possibly part of a toy, probably dating 17th - 18th century. The object is a fragment of openwork forming a right angled triangle with a small projection from one of the corners which is probably a broken edge. This has a D-shaped cross-section. There is not an exact parallel in Forsyth & Egan (2005) but it is similar in shape to elements from openwork toy chests. Dimensions: length: 12.17mm; width: 13.58mm; thickness: 1.70mm; weight: 0.59g. Reference: Forsyth, H. and Egan, G. 2005. Toys, Trifles and Trinkets. Base Metal Min…

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 …

An imcomplets Post-Medieval (AD 1650-1800) Toy Gun. The gun consists of the butt and barrel, with the stubs of an iron trigger mechanism which project both above and below the position of the lock. Some of the long cylindrical barrel is missing. It is cast in one piece with a groove along the top edge to accommodate the iron mechanism, mentioned above. The external surface is decorated with scrolls and curlicues of vegetal character. A further circular rivet runs through the butt of the gun, perhaps aiding in the fixing of the iron component along with the two rivets at the…

Cast lead alloy toy figure of a rider on horseback, missing his head, and the head and legs of the horse. The figure has been decorated on both sides, with different details of the rider and horse on each side. The rider is wearing the typical attire of a cavalryman consisting of a skirted tunic, trousers and knee-high boots, with a strap across the chest which connects to the sword belt which in turn suspends the scabbard on one side. He holds the reins in his left hand and reaches out with his right, likely with a sword in his hand, but this is missing. The rider is sitting on a sad…

Fragment of cast lead alloy, domed, dish shaped and bearing a pattern of raised lines, radiating but not meeting at the centre. These lines are linked by a line which runs around the mid point of the dome. Now damaged and incomplete.

Diameter 19.9mm, Height 8.1mm, Thickness 1.4mm, Mass 3.57g.

Cast lead alloy possible toy dating to the Post-Medieval period. The object is in the form of a bird possibly a hen with a human head. The neck is elongated and damaged. The body of the object is worn and decoration unclear however details on the face are more convincing. The face has moulded straight lips, a projecting rounded nose and oval eyes below ridged eyebrows. The object has short hair which comes to just below the ears and is wearing a pointed hat. Projecting from the top of the hat is an iron bar which may have formed an attachment loop. The base of the object is uneven and…

A post medieval copper alloy plain sphere. The purpose of this ball is unclear - it may have formed part of a game, bean a marble, or acted as a ball bearing. A very similar but larger example is SUR-2CE255. It has a smooth green and black patina.

An incomplete cast copper alloy toy or miniature cauldron, of Late Medieval or early Post Medieval dating (AD 1400 - AD 1600). Approximately 95% of the toy cauldron is present, with one of the three legs missing, presumed lost in antiquity. In plan the cauldron is irregular with a rounded body. It has a sagging base which flares into the rounded body and then tapers inward at the neck before expanding again to form a flared rim. Two diametrically opposed 'lug-like' looped handles are positioned from the rim to the flaring belly of the pot. The cross section of these loops is lento…

A lead Alloy fragment, possible from a Post-Medieval (AD 1650-1800) toy gun. The fragment is curved and appears to represent one side of the handle at the butt-end. The reverse is recessed and has a mid rib end. The display side bears a low relief pattern within a grooved border. The form resembles that of toy petronels or cavalry pistols reported from London, where a 17th-century date is suggested (Forsyth and Egan 2005, page 97, no. 1.39).

A complete, Post-Medieval, copper-alloy whirligig or buzz disc/wheel of the 18th or early 19th century. The toy consists of a disc with a serrated outer edge and two string holes, one square-shaped hole in the centre and one round hole close to the outer edge. The serrations are uneven and crudely cut. The toy appears to have been made from a copper halfpenny of George II or George III and would, therefore, date to the period 1729-1807.

An incomplete cast lead petronel style toy pistol of post-medieval date. All that remains is roughly half of the slightly flared stock and a small portion of the circular barrel. The stock is decorated with a raised oval panel with circumferential pellets and an indistinct central design below which is an area of ribbing. Guns of this type were based on the match-lock 'petronels' of the 16th and 17th centuries, and were fully working models. The metal has a dark greyish-brown patina and is worn. The toy is 55.2mm long, 14.3mm wide, 1.4mm thick and weighs 16.9g.

Post-medieval lead whirligig or buzz wheel, sub-circular, with thirty-five V-shaped peripheral notches of varying sizes. Diameter 40 - 44mm. Thickness 2 - 2.3mm. The string holes, diameter 4mm, are 3mm apart. Weight 25.28g. Most such objects found in London are of lead alloy (Forsyth with Egan 2005, 387-91), but this example seems to be of nearly pure lead. 17th - 18th century.

Lead Alloy, possibly painted Probable Toy. Cast fragment from a tubular object of externally angular form, possibly originally octagonal. Two flat surfaces with a shallow gutter are represented: one bears a pair of bosses with a longitudinal mould line running through their centres, and the other bears the letters S G ?N, possibly reserved from a painted surface of uncertain hue. It is suggested this may be a small fragment from the barrel of a toy pistol. These initially followed the form of contemporary firearms, but subsequently perhaps lagging behind the times, and some probably…
