An incomplete cast lead toy gun, most probably a musket, of post-medieval date. Only the flared stock and a small length of one half of the barrel survive with a small knop representing the trigger. The remaining section of the barrel is decorated with repeated double banded ribbed design overlaid by an elaborate foliate design. This continues on to the barrel section. Casting flashes are present to the underside of the stock and barrel. Egan (2005), p.89, discusses these objects stating that the integral scrolling patterns and ring and dot motifs are a loose imitation of the inlai…

A cast lead alloy shy-cock toy dating to the 18th century AD. The shy-cock is single-sided with moulded decoration indicating tail and body feathers and a crude beak and eye. The reverse is plain and undecorated. It sits on a small subcircular base enabling to stand. Shy-cocks may have derived from the Shrove Tuesday pursuit of casting stones or cudgels at a live cockerel which was either tied down or buried up to its neck in the ground (Forsyth & Egan 2005: 239). By the later post-medieval period this barbaric custom had generally been replaced by toys such as these.
