Lead alloy toy. Solid cast naturalistically rendered model of a pig, approaching 1:32 or 54mm scale. The animal is recognisable from its build and from its large oval ears which are held back against the sides of its head; two legs, the end of the snout and the tail are lost. Patinated overall, with some loss to corrosion. The build of the animal may suggest a breed post-dating the Agricultural Revolution of the 18th and early 19th centuries, so this is probably from a set of toy farm animals. The use of solid casting sets this object apart from the more recent industrial manufacture …

Copper alloy toy. Cast miniature pair of conjoined flat bottomed cauldrons with bulbous bodies of diameter 13.1mm and height 13.5mm, everted rims and a triangular handle on either side which joins the rim as a blind loop. A single long (13.2mm) tapered D section leg remains, with the scars left by the loss of two others, so the pair represented were actually supported by the complement required by a single vessel. The style of vessel suggests an early post-medieval date (Forsyth and Egan 2005, pages 111-115). Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Height: 25.3mm, Width: 36.1mm, …

Lead alloy probable toy fragment. Ribbed part of the barrel of a toy gun, with a possible axle position at one end, and with a bordered disc at right angles to the putative barrel.

Length: 23.7mm, Diameter (barrel): 10.7mm, Thickness (barrel wall): 1.7mm, Weight (with trapped soil): 10.52gms

Copper alloy toy gun. Cast working model of a cannon or carronade, with oval bore of diameter (long axis): 9mm. The gun is modelled with a large cascabel, reinforcing rings either side of a drilled touch hole of diameter 3mm, a ridge extending from immediately left of the touch hole with a length of 17.5mm, and a muzzle ring. The short barrel lacks trunnions, having a sub-rectangular tab with a drilled hole of diameter 2mm projecting from its underside half way along the barrel. This is slightly angled, possibly as a result of rough treatment. This was to fit the gun barrel to its car…
