They are equidistantly spaced around the end of the quarrel which also terminates with a knop. Above the four feathers is a rectangular collar with a round hole of diameter 2mm which presumabl…

A post-Medieval copper-alloy toy musket. The butt is truncated; also there is a pin/rod with a triple beaded head plugging the muzzle of the gun. Guns of this type were based on the match-lock 'petronels' of the 16th and 17th centuries, and were fully working models. This gun is possibly an Egan and Forsyth's Type 2 dated 1600-1640 (Egan and Forsyth, 2005, Toys, Trifles and Trinkets, Museum of London, page 92). Forsyth, H. and Egan, G., 2005.

Lead alloy toy fragment. Solid cast half-round object comprising a slightly tapering limb - whether the arm of a figure or the leg of an item of furniture is uncertain - which is broken at one end and meets a slightly expanded and bulbous moulded collar or cuff at the other. The object is broken after this feature. The limb has moulded diaper pattern relief texture on both sides. This might represent clothing, but also appears on other toys. It is a feature of 16th-century base metal toys attributed to manufacturers in the Low Countries. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1600. Le…

A Post Medieval lead alloy object, probably a toy of undetermined type (it does not appear to be in Forsyth & Egan, 2005) dating between AD 1600-1750. The object is ellipse in shape and has four protrusions extending outwards: two on the left and two on the right; each pair is closest to each opposing foci with the furthest distance between them. The object is unifacial as the under-side is flat with no pattern or design. On the upper-side, each protrusion appears to have a central depression and therefore two outer ridges. The outside rim of the ellipse has a raised dot design. Insid…
