A complete lead-alloy spindle whorl of medieval to Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1200 - 1800. The spindle whorl is bi-conical with a central perforation running through it and its shape is slightly distorted, especially around the perforation. Both surfaces are decorated with raised lines and pellets though the exact form is difficult to determine due to wear and distortion. The metal has a light grey/brown patina and is worn. The spindle whorl is 25.5mm in diameter, 14.7mm thick and weighs 35.8g. The perforation is 9.8mm in diameter. Lead spindle whorls were commonly used from the Iron A…

A complete lead-alloy spindle whorl of Medieval to Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1200 - 1800. The spindle whorl is bi-conical with a central perforation running through it. Both surfaces are decorated with irregularly spaced raised lines radiating from the central perforation. Each resulting trapezoidal cell houses one or two raised pellets. One surface has a linear indent or slit near the central perforation, probably caused by damage and not a feature of the object's design. The metal has a light brown/white patina and is worn. The spindle whorl is 28.1mm in diameter, 10.9mm thick and we…
