A lead object in the form of a three-dimensional chicken, probably used as a cockshy. The object dates circa 1700-1800. The object is formed of a convex oval piece of lead, with a tall crest running down the middle. The convex surface is decorated with a close network of criss-crossed lines. A moulded pellet is located in each cell. This patterning probably represents scales. A large pellet in ring representing the eyes is located either side at one end. The sides of the crest are decorated on both sides. The decoration comprises a band of hatching along the base, with three bands of …

An incomplete cast lead-tin alloy (pewter) toy, probably an open-mouthed ewer or jug of post-medieval date. The toy has a circular pedestal base above which rises the main vessel which was hexagonally faceted. The remains of a possible handle are represented by a stub on the vessel side. The rim and part of the upper portion of the toy is broken, however where it is complete a thin linear decorative border can be seen. The facet edges of the base are also decorated with beading. Similar artefacts are discussed in Forsyth and Egan (2005:282-3) and classed as vessel Type 2, cup ewers or…

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…

A Post Medeival copper alloy Toy Gun of 17th Century date. The toy has been cast in one piece and has a 'fishtail' butt, faceted barrel (hollow), open pan and rectangular trigger guard. Decorative hatches can be seen on the back of the butt. Length: 107.8mm; width: 28.2mm; weight: 7.3mm thick and weighs 40.7 grams. 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 capa…

Lead alloy Toy. Cast toy cannon barrel, with a broad barrel which tapers from a cascabel at the wider end, past a pair of trunnions and three adjacent steps, to a very slightly flared muzzle. A slight mould line is visible viewed from the side. The material would not be suitable for a working gun and there is no touch hole as this would require. A round section object, probably of metal, is jammed into the mouth of the barrel, its flat surface being visible 4mm in. The barrel is dented, but the metal is unpatinated. This gun may well have been fitted to a separate carriage of wood or …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy toy in the form of a musket (gun) dating to the mid Post Medieval period (c. 1600-c. 1640). The barrel is rectangular in section and hollow. The barrel widens in width towards the butt, which bends away at approximately 45 degrees. A comma-shaped trigger guard extends from the lower edge at the junction between barrel and butt. The barrel is decorated towards the opening with a pair of lines, and with diagonal lines and pellets at the butt-end. Toys such of these are based on the match-lock 'petronels' of the 16th and 17th centuries, and examples with …

An incomplete cast lead-tin alloy (pewter) toy dating to the post-medieval period. The toy is in the form of a standing bowl or 'flat cup', and basically comprising a tall-sided bowl or cup on a round foot. The remains of one hadle can be seen. There is some decoration around the outer edge of the rim, and it appears to be formed of short lines and chevrons, however it is indistinct. The bowl has a slight stepped narrowing half way down towards the base. Similar cups or bowls are illustrated in Egan and Forsyth (2005:294), which they suggest are known form the early 15th century to the…
