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.

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…

An incomplete cast copper alloy toy cannon of Post-Medieval date. The muzzle (open end) of the cannon is missing due to an old break. It is cast in one piece with a pronounced base ring and tapering breech. The cascabel is very long and prominent, narrowing after the base ring and ending in a small, expanded, rounded knop terminal. The vent field, between the base ring and vent ring, is only as wide as the vent hole which is 1.7mm in diameter. The trunnions project from either side of the first reinforce ring. Both trunions taper towards the ends and are square in section. However…

A complete cast copper allloy toy miniature canon of late Post-Medieval date (17th-19th century). These models were produced as complete working models of their larger counterparts. The toy cannon is comprised of a circular barrel which tapers in diameter from the bulbous knop (cascabel button) at one end, to the muzzle at the other. Both muzzle and breech ends of the cannon have double banded raised collars. Two trunnions, which are square in section, project from a collar midway along the barrel. These would have enabled the piece to be elevated and mounted onto a wooden wheeled ca…

An incomplete post-medieval lead alloy (pewter) toy vessel, probably 17th century in date. The toy is a miniature deep bowl or vase with steep sides and a pronounced foot-ring for the base. On the vessel just above the foot ring is a single incised line for decoration. The rest of the vessel is missing so its true form is not identifiable. The base of the bowl has multiple thin circumferential lines which appears to be a product of the manufacturing process rather than being decorative. Although it is likely that this toy is 17th century in date, toy vessels like this are also known …

Probably a post medieval cast copper alloy miniature mortar. Many of these miniature artillery pieces were fired and are often found with exploded barrels from misfires. This appears to have happened to this example. It dates sometime between c1600 and 1900 AD. Most likely to date between c1650 and c1750, as it is similar in form to mortars used in the English Civil War. The length is 68mm, width 40 mm, and the weight is 84.81g.
