Cast lead alloy possible toy dating to the Post-Medieval period. The object is in the form of a bird possibly a hen with a human head. The neck is elongated and damaged.

The face has moulded straight lips, a projecting rounded nose and oval eyes below ridged eyebrows. The object has short hair which comes to just below the ears and is wearing a pointed hat. Projecting from the top of the hat is an iron bar which may have formed an attachment loop. The base of the object is uneven and…

A post medieval copper alloy plain sphere. The purpose of this ball is unclear - it may have formed part of a game, bean a marble, or acted as a ball bearing. A very similar but larger example is SUR-2CE255. It has a smooth green and black patina.

An incomplete cast copper alloy toy or miniature cauldron, of Late Medieval or early Post Medieval dating (AD 1400 - AD 1600). Approximately 95% of the toy cauldron is present, with one of the three legs missing, presumed lost in antiquity. In plan the cauldron is irregular with a rounded body. It has a sagging base which flares into the rounded body and then tapers inward at the neck before expanding again to form a flared rim. Two diametrically opposed 'lug-like' looped handles are positioned from the rim to the flaring belly of the pot. The cross section of these loops is lento…

A lead Alloy fragment, possible from a Post-Medieval (AD 1650-1800) toy gun. The fragment is curved and appears to represent one side of the handle at the butt-end. The reverse is recessed and has a mid rib end. The display side bears a low relief pattern within a grooved border. The form resembles that of toy petronels or cavalry pistols reported from London, where a 17th-century date is suggested (Forsyth and Egan 2005, page 97, no. 1.39).

A complete, Post-Medieval, copper-alloy whirligig or buzz disc/wheel of the 18th or early 19th century. The toy consists of a disc with a serrated outer edge and two string holes, one square-shaped hole in the centre and one round hole close to the outer edge. The serrations are uneven and crudely cut. The toy appears to have been made from a copper halfpenny of George II or George III and would, therefore, date to the period 1729-1807.

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. Most such objects found in London are of lead alloy (Forsyth with Egan 2005, 387-91), but this example seems to be of nearly pure lead. 17th - 18th century.

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…

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 …
