Copper alloy anti-aircraft shell splinter. A fragment of cast copper alloy with regularly spaced grooves on either side, but running in opposite directions; broken on all sides with explosive force.

An incomplete copper alloy trade weight or lid of Early Modern dating (AD 1836 to AD 1901). The probable trade weight or lid is circular, with a raised rim. The back is covered with white probable solder, and is the reverse of the front, with a recessed rim. This probable solder suggested that it was secured, probably to the lid of a box of cup weights. The front bears several stamped symbols. In the centre, inside a double engraved ring, is a Crowned VR, indicating that it was made during the reign of Queen Victoria between 1836 and 1901. Around the outside are six capital letter A's…

White metal glove warmer fragment. A lightweight hemispherical bowl with a pair of parallel oval section prongs projecting from its side [both broken], and with a round hollow in its base. The bowl retains fibrous charred material with a round hollow in its centre, probably a non-combustible material such as asbestos or impregnated fibre. A billet of smouldering charcoal would be placed in the hollow and the halves of a spherical container closed round it, to be kept in a pocket or a work glove. The warmer could retain heat for several hours, and would assist a worker or sportsman perf…

Lead alloy toy. A hollow-cast bird modelled standing in a costume of scarlet trousers and white vest; the head is lost. The figure retains a white undercoat and extensive traces of red and black paint, the latter applied to the back and to short wings against the body. The anthropomorphic aspect might suggest this to represent the Guinness Toucan, a promotional creature invented in1935 and popular ever after. Some details depart from the usual depiction of the toucan, for example its erect tail - difficult to retain for such a model - and the extent of its red rump. So, with the head m…

Lead alloy toy farm animal. Hollow-cast naturalistically modelled leaping hare or rabbit at a scale of 1:32; probably an issue supplementing Britains Farm Set of 1923. The maker's mark: ENGLAND is moulded in relief on one ear, while the abbreviated legend: COPYRT appears on the belly; both marks are typical features of Britains models. One front and one back leg are lost. Suggested date: Modern, 1925-1960. Height: 20mm, Length: 37mm, Thickness (overall): 9.4mm, Weight: 8.34gms

Lead alloy toy farm animal. Probably hollow-cast pig or boar, naturalistically modelled at an uncertain scale - which is necessarily contingent on the age of the subject. Near complete, with only a single trotter lost. One side retains white paint traces. This accompanied an assortment of toy figures by Britains and other makers. Suggested date: Modern, 1925-1960.

Lead alloy toys. Two hollow-cast swimming swans naturalistically modelled at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm, probably by Britains as supplementary issues to their Farm Set of 1923. Both figures retain extensive traces of white paint, have lost their upper neck and head, but are otherwise in good condition, with blowhole aperture in the base, though one has a pierced dented body. Suggested date: Modern, 1925-1960. Combined Weight (with some trapped soil): 43.59gms

Lead alloy toy soldier fragment. Hollow-cast head from a naturalistically modelled horse at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm. The horse is bridled and has separately modelled ears. The scale, style and this detail together suggest a Britains product of the period c.1920-1960. An especially animated face might make this a mount for a cowboy rather than a soldier, as the latter were traditionally presented in somewhat stiff and formal poses. Suggested date: Modern, 1920-1960. Length: 25.4mm, Width: 26.2mm, Thickness (wall of casting): 0.7mm, Weight: 3.27gms

Lead alloy toy. A hollow-cast rectangular beehive with gabled roof, representing a wooden structure at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm. This is probably from the Britains Farm Set which was launched as a popular range of toys in 1923 and was rapidly increased until the outbreak of the Second World War. Lightly patinated; a rounded hole in the base is an original feature but a piercing through the roof is damage. Suggested date: Modern, 1925-1940. Height: 20.0mm, Width: 24.4mm, Thickness (wall of casting): 0.8mm, Weight: 33.38gms

Lead alloy toy soldier. A solid cast naturalistically modelled figure of a marching standard bearer with flag carried over the shoulder, dressed in the uniform of a Guards or Fusilier Regiment with a tall bearskin hat and with a back pack. The figure is made in a style approaching 'semi-flat' indicating Continental manufacture. Red paint traces remain, so it is probably a British Regiment which is represented, though Denmark also has red-coated Guardsmen. A scale of c.28mm could be consistent with German manufacture. The figure wears straight-legged trousers, which might denote an issu…

Lead alloy toy soldier fragments. Three hollow-cast horse heads, two bridled, and one armoured in late medieval style, naturalistically modelled at a scale of 1:32 or 54mm. All three figures have the ears of the horses modelled as a solid single feature rather than individually, a trait which at this scale distinguishes the mounts of 'Ancient Britains' toy soldiers of the period 1893 - c.1920. The muzzle of the armoured horse is lost, along with the rest of the horse and rider for all three figures. Patinated. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1920. Combined Weight:12.51gms

Lead alloy toy. Hollow-cast figure of a woman standing with her left arm folded across her waist and the right by her side, possibly holding a bucket or basket [now lost], naturalistically modelled at a scale of c.1:32 or 54mm. She is wearing a long dress with pinafore strings indicated on the back, and is presumably part of a farm set. The figure lacks the moving arm associated with many Britains figures, though the scale and modelling are consistent with the firm's work. The head and base are lost. A lack of patina tends to point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Modern, 1…

Steel and bone penknife. A folding pocket knife with at least two blades confined between metal plates with outer round-ended flat handle plates of polished bone attached by three rivets on either side. The corrosion of the blades and inner fittings is beginning to promote the 'explosion' of the object as its halves are forced apart. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1940.

A modern gold decade ring, probably dating to c. AD 1800-1950. The finger ring comprises of two parts, it's primary component being a red gold hoop, 4.0mm wide, 1.2mm thick and 23.9mm in diameter. This has a flat inner surface and is unmarked, however the edges of its outer face are angled upwards at 90 degrees, forming a uniform, circumferential channel. Within this rests a second band of gold, unfixed and freely rotatable within the channel. To the eye this appears to be a different alloy of gold, lacking the pink/red tint. A flat oval red gold bezel is applied to this inner ring, in…
