An incomplete copper alloy pastry jigger, consisting of the wheel only, dating to the Post Medieval period (c. AD 1700 - 1800). The wheel is circular with radiating grooves and ridges and a serrated zig-zig circumference, which would have created a zig-zag pattern in the pastry. At the centre of the wheel is a rivet hole for attachment to the handle. The object has a mid-green patina. There are a large number of similar examples recorded on the PAS database, including: HAMP-DDE809; WMID-2EA4CA; and PUBLIC-9CEEC2. The overall dimensions are as follows: 34.33mm in diameter, 2.99mm in t…

A fragment of a post-Medieval copper-alloy pastry jigger, cutter, or crimper (c. 1700-c. 1800). The majority of the handle/shaft is missing due to a break. The copper-alloy handler is forked to accommodate the copper-alloy cutting wheel and each side of the handle is 'D'-shaped in cross-section, flat on the inner faces. The wheel has radiating grooves and ridges and is serrated (zig-zagged) around the circumference. There is a central perforation through which a copper-alloy axle passes and is secured to the ends of the handle. The other end of the handle/shaft would probably have te…

Post Medieval to Modern (c. 1650-1900) copper alloy wheel from a pastry jigger used to decorate the edges of pies and other baked foodstuffs. Each face of the disc bears radiating grooves, off-set on the two faces so that a zig-zag line was produced. Traces of staining suggest the use of a central, iron pin. Diameter 24.5mm, Thickness 3.1mm, Mass 5.26g

A Post-Medieval copper alloy pastry jigger, possibly dating from c. AD 1700 to 1800. The item consists of a handle, with a curved, serrated tool at the other end. There is no cutting wheel end, unlike other examples of pastry jiggers. The handle is twisted, with four raised lines twisting around the length of the handle. The handle terminates in a raised collar, an elongated knop, and a final, circular knop. At the other end of the handle, the object flattens to form a rounded square-shaped cutting edge. The top face of this has two parallel, indented lines, whereas the back is plain…

Copper alloy possible pastry jigger wheel. A cast disc with the rounded stubs of twelve points, though with one larger and more angular than the rest. One side bears a moulded radial pattern, with each ray bordered like a petal. The other side is plain, but with a central hollow of diameter 10mm with what appears to be the stub of an axial pin in the middle. This is interpreted as permitting the wheel to turn within a handle or frame [lost]. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1800 Diameter: 24.3mm, Thickness: 1.6mm, Weight: 4.52gms

An incomplete copper alloy wheel from a pastry jigger dating to the Post Medieval period (c. AD 1700-1800).The openwork wheel is circular in plan with a central perforation to attach it to the jigger arm. Four spokes located at the four cardinal points project outwards from the central perforation, forming broadly oval openwork cells. The entire circumference of the wheel is decorated with deep incisions located on either face to form a zig-zag cutting edge. The wheel has been broken in half and portions of the outer edge are missing. The object is well worn with a dark greenish-brown …

A copper alloy pastry jigger dating from the post medieval period. The handle is missing, but it is otherwise in good condition and although the wheel is slightly bent it is still rotatable. The attachment arm is in the form of a forked teardrop shape and is attached to the centre of the wheel with a copper alloy rivet through the broader end, with an old break at the knop at the narrow end. The wheel is openwork with a lozenge-shaped central plate with four concave sided struts radiating from each corner and a wavy 'zigzag' cutting edge at the circumference. The overall dimensions are…

A Post-Medieval copper alloy pastry jigger, probably dating to c. AD 1700-1800. The object was found in three parts and subsequently reattached by the finder. The jigger consists of a circular sectioned shaft with three bulbous double stranded collars along its length, tapering towards one end where it bifurcates into two perforated arms; forming the box for the wheel. The latter is circular, with a crimped edge and central perforation, held in situ by an iron axis bar. There is a break preceding the collars which deliniate this terminal. At the other end of the shaft flares outwards i…

Copper alloy wheel from a Post-medieval pastry jigger (pastry cutter) dating 1700 to 1800 AD. The wheel is circular with a crimped outer edge. Due to the crimped edge, rolling it over pastry dough would have resulted in a rolled zig-zag line. The original central hole is blocked. The diameter is 22.8mm and the weight 5.6g. Similar to LANCUM-FC21F4. LANCUM-B9F0DA, KENT-AD1931 and DENO-791763

A probable copper alloy pastry jigger handle dating from the post medieval period, about AD1600-1800. Only the forked attachment part of the handle survive, with the wheel missing. The handle is oval in section and is divided into sections by groups of three collars and intermittent reels. Each plain part is swollen in the middle. A double collar marks the end of the handle and the start of the attachment arms. The opposite end to the one that is missing the wheel is pointy. Similar examples can be seen in Bailey's "Detector Finds", page 96, dated from the seventeenth or eighteenth ce…

An incomplete post-medieval copper alloy pastry jigger, consisting of the wheel only and dating to c. 1700 - 1800. The wheel is circular with a crimped edge and a slight circular depression at the centre of each face, for attachment to the handle. This circular area is surrounded by iron staining. The crimped edge of the wheel would have created a zig-zag pattern in the pastry. The object has a green patina and measures 33.0 mm in diameter, 3.0 mm in thickness and weighs 13.6 g. A similar wheel can be seen in Bailey 1999; 96, 1, dating to the 18th century. Similar wheels in this da…

An incomplete post-Medieval copper-alloy pastry jigger, dating from around the 18th century. The item consists of a cutting wheel at one end, and a shank which appears to have broken at its mid point. Both faces of the cutting wheel are flat with radiating grooves and ridges. The cuting edge forms a zig-zag shape in profile and is pierced centrally for an axis bar which secures it to the shank. The cutting wheel measures c.32 mm in diameter. At the wheel end, the shank divides into two arms, creating a slot for the cutting wheel to be housed. There is a circular hole at each arm to tak…

An incomplete post medieval copper alloy pastry jigger, dating from AD c. 1700 - c. 1800. The object comprises the handle part of the jigger, the wheel is missing. The handle is oval in cross section with an old break at one end. It widens and flattens into the head of the jigger. The shoulders of the head are curved. One end of the head is broken just after the curved shoulder. The edge has a series of moulded V-shaped notches running the length of the head. This would have been for cutting and pressing into the pastry. A similar object is described in Bailey 1999, 96.
