Lead alloy Toy Fish. Flat casting representing a fish with a large head, tapering body and a partially surviving tail of two flukes. Conventionalised detailing, which was probably stamped, is identical on both sides and comprises a diagonally cabled border, a round eye and prominent lips, and crescentic scales modelled in about fourteen vertical rows. The object is now gently curved along its length. Possibly a novelty from a cracker, or a piece from a children's game. Suggested date: Post-Medieval to Modern, 1850-1950. Length: 50.2mm, Width: 19.2mm, Thickness: 1.4mm, Weight: 4.59gms.

A Post Medieval lead alloy toy dish dating to the late 17th century. The dish is circular with a slightly curved, everted rim. The vessel is decorated on the inside, with a foliate design consisting of alternating leaf and eight-petal flower motifs running around the internal wall. There is moulded beading running around the edge of the rim. There is a moulded foot ring on the base. Similar examples can be found in Forsyth and Egan (2005, nos. 8.43-8.45 and 8.52). However, most examples have a flanged rim whereas this example has no flange. A more damaged parallel can be found on t…

Post-medieval toy or miniature copper alloy multiple cauldron. Four cauldrons, each completely joined to its neighbours, together comprise a roughly square flat-topped object with a slight concavity in the centre of each side, with a tiny pierced lug in each corner (two incomplete). The underside is almost flat with a leg in each corner. Two have been worn almost flat and are scarcely discernible. The other two are stumps. 29 x 25mm. Height excluding legs 14mm. On account of their absence from urban contexts such novelty items and their full-size equivalents have been described as a "r…

A fragment from a lead-alloy toy 'horn book' of post-medieval date, representing around 25% of the original object. It is from the bottom right hand corner of a rectangular plaque, and reads OP in a line, above TV in a line, above YZ in a line, with decoration below, all in low relief. The omission of the letter U is not unusual (Lewis 2012, 99). The decoration at the base is indistinct but may consist of a central cross flanked immediately by a diagonal line, then by four or five upright strokes: possibly representing a numeral (see Lewis 2012, 100). The letters are within a border c…

A post medieval modified lead alloy token, dating 17th-18th century. The token would originally have been a uniface token with wheel decoration, consisting of nine spokes. The token has been pierced twice near the centre, suggesting it may have been converted into a whirligig toy. The use of these toys dates predominantly to the 17th-18th century, though the token may have been in circulation for a long time before that (Forsyth and Egan, 2005, 388). However, whirligigs tended to have a serrated outer edge so this example may be an unfinished one. The object is warped so that it is no…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy "toy" cannon of probable eighteenth to nineteenth century date (c. 1750-c. 1850). The toy is described as if it were a functioning cannon. The cascable (or cascabel) and the cascabel button has a length of about 9.10mm. The base ring diameter is 8.78mm. Between the base ring and the first astragal, the vent field has a length of c. 5.10mm and the circular vent itself has a diameter of 2.67mm. This vent is sometimes referred to as a 'touch-hole'. The trunnions (length: 18.91mm) divide the first and second reinforce from the chase which is incom…

Lead alloy Toy Cannon. Barrel of a toy gun with mould line from a two piece mould. Unlike the miniature guns from London (see Forsyth and Egan 2005), this was made as a two part model, this segment extending from muzzle to behind the trunnions; as it is thin walled, the 'breech' section may have been heavier if the gun were to be fired. Traces of four circumferential moulded lines appear towards the wide end. There is a small hole near one trunnion and the muzzle is slightly splayed. The object was found with a milled slate pencil fragment (of length 42.3mm) as would be used in a sch…

A corroded and incomplete Post Medieval cast copper alloy toy cannon. The cannon is 78.7 mm long with two central trunion bars, one of which is broken. At the breech end there is a thickened base ring from which the barrel tapers to a domed cascabel. There is a vent hole on one side between the base ring and the first reinforcement. From the trunnion forward the barrel tapers slightly to a flared muzzle. Between the muzzle and the trunnion the barrel seems to be undecorated. The cannon weighs 49.1 grams and at its widest point at the base ring is 15.4 mm in diameter. There is a very s…

Lead Alloy painted Toy Soldier fragment. Solid cast and naturalistically modelled horse's head, modelled in animated style at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm, with a long mane swept to one side and a hanging forelock. This is identified as part of a toy cavalryman - rather than a draught animal - by the riding harness represented on the head, and by its spirited appearance. Relict [now] black paint survives on one side. Insofar as is discernible, this object was not hollow cast, and may therefore be distinct from, and possibly earlier than, the comparable products of William Britains. Suggest…

Late post medieval toy pistol barrel fragment. The material from which it has been constructed appears to be something akin to spelter. It has been quite heavily abraded but the scrolling decoration is still clearly visible. There is what appears to have been a pivot point, marked as A in the illustration. Probably dates to between c1700 and c1900 AD. The diameter is 19mm, length 38mm, total width 22mm, and the weight 16.32g. For similar fragments see KENT-9B9792, SUR-9F26D8, and NLM-D54AB1.

A complete post-Medieval solid cast-lead toy or gaming piece in the form of an owl (c. 1700-c. 1800). The standing (or perched) owl is integral with a sub-circular misshapen flat base. The owl is convex and moulded at the front and flat at the rear. At the front, the raised eyes and beak are clear. Its body plumage at the front is represented by raised cross hatching. A wing at the right side is folded. The rear is plain and the underside of the base is concave with raised lines which probably represent the surface of the mould. The object has a buff patina overall. Height: 3…

A fragment of a post medieval lead alloy toy dating between late 16th and 17th century. The fragment consists of three prongs, one of which is curved, with a curvilinear panel flaring to a rectangular panel. The rectangular panel has a moulded cross-hatch decoration. The closest parallels that can be found are with the rigging of toy ships (Forsyth and Egan, 2005, 323) but it is impossible to be sure due to the size of the fragment. Dimensions: length: 17.14 mm; width: 13.50 mm; thickness: 1.33 mm; weight: 1.00g. Reference: Forsyth, H. and Egan, G. 2005. Toys, Trifles and Trinke…

A post medieval lead alloy shy cock, dating to the 18th century. The design is quite crude, as is common for this sort of object (Forsyth and Egan, 2005, 239), and appears to depict a bird in profile facing right. Only one side of the bird is decorated, with raised moulding for the eye, wing and body. The bird is connected to the base by a cone with casting seams running along either side of the cone. The base is irregularly shaped. Dimensions: height: 35.30 mm; width: 25.52 mm; thickness: 15.79 mm; weight: 13.89g. Reference: Forsyth, H. and Egan, G. 2005. Toys, Trifles and Tr…

A post medieval lead alloy toy clock, dating to 18th century. The toy consists of a rectangular panel with a single arched edge. There is an integral suspension loop half-way along the arched edge.

There is a moulded double line decoration running around the straight edges of the object with a ring and dot motif in the centre of the arch, beneath the loop. It is noted in Forsyth and Egan (2005. 338) that toys of this type often mirrored the designs that were pop…
