Copper alloy toy gun. Cast barrel of a toy cannon, cf. Forsyth and Egan 2005 Type 3 design 1. The gun is modelled with strongly defined, if not exaggerated features, including a round cascabel flattened behind, reinforcing rings to either side of a drilled touch hole of diameter 1.7mm, trunnions mounted on a further sharply defined reinforcing ring, and a prominently collared and flared muzzle of bore diameter 5mm. Turning rings appear to sharpen details at the back end, particularly on the underside as used. This would have been mounted on a separate carriage and was designed to fire…

An incomplete Post-medieval lead-alloy torso-fragment of a toy, c. 1700-1900. Presumably this was once a more complete toy, however all that survives is the torso, shoulders and approximately half of the arms. The head has broken off and there is a circular hollow on the top of the object, possibly for the head to attach. The shoulders have a rounded knop at the top of each arm, giving the figure the appearance of wearing a garment with padded shoulders. The arms extend outwards from the body and are circular in cross-section; one arm is projecting a little from the torso, while the o…

An incomplete post-Medieval 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 7.5m. The base ring diameter is 13.0mm. Between the base ring and the first astragal, the vent field has a length of c. 4.7mm and the circular vent itself has a diameter of c. 2.0mm. This vent is sometimes referred to as a 'touch-hole'. The trunnions which divided the first reinforce from the chase are missing but stubs remain…

A lead alloy single-sided toy watch-face. The hands are set at 12.30 and the outer field is filled with flowers, pellets and short curving lines. The dial has been pierced twice at 2 and 6 o'clock for uncertain reasons. This example is not closely paralleled in Egan and Forsyth 2004 (Toys, Trifles and Trinkets) as the numerals are not enclosed in circles.

Post Medieval lead alloy toy pistol or petronel. The petronel is missing the firing mechanism (trigger, cock, springs etc) and the end of the barrel. Many different types of similar toy pistols have been recorded on the PAS database, ranging in date from the 16th-19th century AD. The form of this artefact resembles that of toy petronels or cavalry pistols reported from London, where a 17th-century date is suggested (Forsyth and Egan 2005, p97, no. 1.39). Similar to WMID-BCFD74, KENT-761751, SUSS-41C181, and NLM-5019F5 on the database. The length is 52mm, the width is 16mm

Post medieval copper alloy toy gun of 17th - 18th century date The gun is incomplete missing the butt and trigger guard (with a surviving length of 57.9mm and a weight of 12.8g). The barrel is of sub-oval section, with straight, faceted sides and is widest at the stock (at 6.8mm and 5.3mm x 6.8mm at the end of the barrel). The corrosion has closed barrel, making it difficult to determine the bore. The vent is small and is also closed by corrosion with a rounded wedge beneath the pan, which may have served as a hold for the match (Egan & Forsyth 2005, 89). Possibly Egan and Forsyt…

A cast lead-alloy boar figurine, probably a toy, dating from the post-Medieval period. The animal is of realistic, if somewhat flattened, appearance. As well as being heavily corroded in places, the legs are also incomplete and the animal may once have stood on a base. A groove extends longitudinally along the base and may suggest that this piece once fitted to another element. A globular, glass-like pellet is located within this groove, located between the boar's hindquarters. It is unclear as to whether this pellet had lodged within the groove after deposition or whether it was a…

A complete cast lead alloy toy axehead of Post-Medieval date. The axehead is trapezoidal in plan flaring out from a rectangular butt end to a wide splayed blade. Mid-way along the shaft is a tubular moulding by which the axe (if functional) would have been hafted. The surface of the axehead bears traces of decoration though the advance wear makes its exact nature difficult to determine. The metal is a mid greyish-white colour and is worn. The axehead is 23.9mm long, 20.4mm wide, 8mm thick and weighs 3.5g.
