An incomplete cast lead alloy toy of post-medieval date. The toy is incomplete makings it's interpretation difficult. The main body of the object is conical with hatching decoration around its circumference and a circular sectioned, bent arm extending from one end. Casting flashes are present along both sides of the toy. It is possible that this toy is either a wicker-style basket of skirted figure to be seated on a horse though no parallel could be found in the usual literature. The toy is 31.2mm long, 17.3mm wide, 11.3mm thick and weighs 17.2g.
