Broken lead toy of post-medieval date (c. 1600 - 1800 AD), probably a cannon or whistle.

Broad period: MODERN
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Victorian Silver Apothecary/Medicinal Spoon. Beautifully decorated with two snakes intertwinned and wrapped around the handle (possibly associated with the staff of Hermes, but there are no wings), but gives reference to medicine nonetheless. There is a 'pinecone' type object at the top of the spoon which is decorated with a crosshatch pattern. The snakes are intricately, with individual scales and even eyes can be seen. The measuring spoon 'bowl' is 17mm in diameter. The spoon is complete and in very good condition.

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead bar mount with integral rivets, possibly with the function of repairing a vessel. Probably post-medieval with the suggested date range: c.1500 - 1800 AD. The object is flat and broadly rectangular, with ends that narrow to a point. A ridged casting seam is visible across the length of the back face of the object. Also on the back face are the remains of three rivets, one positioned centrally and the others at either end. These have been broken off close to the base and flattened. The abraded nature of the breaks suggests this occurred in antiquity when the object was truncate…

County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete large copper-alloy spherical button with traces of white-metal coating, dating to the post-medieval to modern period (c. 1600 - 1800 AD). The button is a hollow sphere, slightly wider than it is tall, which is formed from two sheets of copper-alloy, the seam of which runs around the widest part of the button. Two spurs at the bottom of the object are the broken remains of an attachment loop; these are circular in section and appear from the rough, red-brown patch surrounding them to have been soldered on. Otherwise, the object has a matt, green-brown patina with patches of a…

Three fragments of late medieval - modern (c.1400-1900) bone button or bead making waste fragment. These are worked fragments from a long bone or rib, cut to form flat plates.

Lead alloy possible toy fragment. A small fragment from a hollow cast object with a curving, possibly cylindrical, surface. The ridged outer side may suggest the bark of a tree or bough naturalistically represented as a toy or model, though this is too small a fragment to offer these suggestions with any certainty.

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A cast elongated lentoid section object, resembling the blade from a miniature aeroplane propeller, with a point at one end and thickened, twisted and broken at the other, which is also melted. The object narrows in its thickness towards its pointed end, which might point to a function as a blade.

An unknown copper alloy object of unknown date, but possibly dating from the post medieval to modern period. The object is cylindrical, with a circular hole pierced through the centre.

Object type: HORSESHOE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete iron possible horseshoe of post-Medieval or Modern date, about AD 1600 - 1950. Most of one side is missing. Corrosion obscures any nail holes or fuller, and there is a suggestion of a toe clip, but it is not complete. There is no calkin on the surviving terminal, which is pointed. The web of the horseshoe is uniformally narrow at about 18mm wide. With the lack of evidence for attachmnt, it is possible that this object is part of another artefact such as a chain link, hook or farm machinery part. The object is 117mm long, 98mm wide and 12mm thick. 137.2g.

Copper alloy unidentified object. An encrusted fragment of copper alloy with a shallow trough along one side and an irregular but essentially convex surface on the other. This might be a fragment from a cylindrical object, though if so, it has been dismantled with explosive force - a characteristic of exploded munition fragments or machine parts of the modern period, but rare before that time.

Lead tag. A sub-triangular tag cut from cast lead sheet of a regular 2mm thickness, with a pierced round hole towards its apex and the stamped or incised numeral 64 on one side, in fairly modern style.

The object is a cast iron doorstop, in the shape of a horse and is Victorian in age. The obverse of the horse faces west, the object has a glass eye which is coloured blue, and has unfortunately sustained some damage but is still recognisable.
