Lead alloy possible toy gun fragment. Small fragment of a cast cylindrical object of estimated diameter c.16mm and thickness c.2mm where unadorned. The internal surface is smooth. The outside bears a moulded sub-rectangular panel with a shield shaped raised area with a boss set centrally on that. Heavily patinated overall, suggesting the object was broken in antiquity. Possibly from the barrel of a toy gun, with relief detail representing either its mechanism or an armorial escutcheon. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1800. Length: 32mm, Width (as found): 17.4mm, Thickness (at m…

Copper alloy possible toy gun. Cast concavo-convex slightly tapering object, one half of a two-part object of presumably identical halves. These were joined by iron or steel pins whose decay has left rust stains on two housings on the hollow back of the object. The convex outer surface bears a decorative scheme of vegetal swags limited at the wider end by four or more vertically incised lines. This resembles a handle of a miniature pistol in antique style, and similar objects have been reported made of lead alloy. It may alternatively be a dainty implement handle. Suggested date: Post…

A lead alloy object, probably a fragment of Post-Medieval toy, or maybe part of a pilgrim or secular badge. The object is flat, thin and sub triangular and all edges appear to be broken. One perimeter is decorated with a band of moulded lines. A thick ridge runs transversly around this, and continues up one of the other sides. An additional line runs vertically from the centre. The reverse is undecorated and has no areas of interest. It is possibly part of a lead lady doll or other Post Medieval toy similar to LIN-AD9DD4 or DUR-379244, but seems too small to have been the whole ski…
