Part of a cast lead alloy, toy gun of late Post-Medieval or Modern date, probably AD 1850 - 1900. Only the stock survives; the rest has broken away and is missing. The stock is hollow cast, becoming solid at the break, where the trigger guard would have been. The lower portion of the stock has scrolled floral designs on either side while the upper stock, which protrudes from a mouth-like moulding, is decorated with cross hatching. Toy guns were popular from the late 17th century and some examples even fired. This is probably a late example dating from about AD 1850- 1900. It has a cr…

A lead alloy toy watch dating from the late 17th or 18th century. it is circular and convex on both faces, though damage has caused a depression in both faces. The edge round the top of the watch face is missing, revealing the two pieces that form the watch and the hollow inside. Both sides have the same design: a beaded edge, a band of ornate foliage decoration in relief, including large C scrolls, and then another row of beading before the clock face in the center. The numerals are Roman and are enclosed within raised bands. The inner face is plain, and the hands are cast in reli…

Post-medieval toy. Two dimensional cast lead horses head, broken across the neck, with details of bridle, reins and mane on both sides. The neck and head are stretched perhaps indicating the horse was depicted in full gallop. For very similar possibly 16th century two dimesional lead horses, and 16th - 18th century two dimensional lead coaches see Forsyth and Egan (2005, 320 - 322, no.10.7, 10.8 - 10.13 and ).

Post medieval copper alloy miniature cannon, probably dating between 1700 to 1800 AD as it is similar to guns of the eighteenth century and later. The trunnions suggest the gun was intended to be mounted in a gun carriage, so possibly a copy of a naval gun or field piece. Many of these cannons were fired and are often found with exploded barrels from mis-fires. Forsyth and Egan (2005:79-84) discuss toy cannons and think the ones that actually fired were widespread by the end of the sixteenth century. Most surviving examples show features that were developed in seventeenth - eighteenth…

Small cast copper alloy toy cauldron dating from the post-medieval period, that is c.AD1500-1700. The cauldron is small and incomplete: one of the three feet is missing. There is no clear break in the surface and it may have been a faulty casting. The cauldron is hollow and two legs remain; there is no handle. It is very likely that it is a copy of one of the larger cauldrons used for cooking in the post-medieval period. This one would have been used by children as a toy.

A copper-alloy miniature toy musket of post-Medieval date. The toy has been cast in one piece and has a 'fishtail' butt, faceted barrel (hollow), open pan and rectangular trigger guard. No trace of decoration can be seen on the corroded surfaces of the piece. Length: 70.3mm; width: 7.3mm; weight: 14.3g. Several similar toy muskets were found in excavations in London and were dated to the early 17th century, based on their distinctive design (Forsyth and Egan 2005: 89 - 97). These guns were functioning pieces which, with the addition of gunpowder, would have been capable of fi…

An incomplete cast lead alloy - pewter - toy cup dating to the early Post Medieval period, circa AD1600-1700. Approximately 60% of the cup survives, the rest is missing due to old breaks. The cup has also been flattened. None of the damage is new and was probably caused movement in the plough soil. The cup bowl sits on a circular, hollow stand. The original shape of the cup is uncertain due to damage, but the sides of the cup probably widened from the base of the rim of the cup. The surfaces of the cup are plain and undecorated. Soil still adheres to the surfaces of the cup cau…

A post medieval lead alloy toy plate dating to the 18th century. The plate is flat and octagonal in shape. Similar vessels tended to have a central dish with shallow curving walls and a flanged rim, making this example somewhat irregular.

Surrounding the central image is a series of repeated florid designs. This consists of a lozenge with pellet at each tip and facing curvilinear designs with pellets at…

Copper alloy toy cannon of probable 18th-century date cast in one piece, with part of the gun carriage attached.
