Cast lead or lead alloy bi-convex decorated spindle whorl of Roman to Post Medieval date (1 – 1650 AD (probably Medieval 1300-1500). The spindle whorl is sub-circular in plan. Both faces have a cast rim around the edge and also a similar rim around the circumference of the inner hole. The central hole is broadly circular and has been cast / set slightly off centre. On the internal face of the hole there is a large irregular shaped (broadly triangular) void. The diameter of the hole measures 8.8mm.

Cast lead alloy spindle whorl of Roman to Post Medieval date (1 – 1650 AD). The spindle whorl is irregular being sub-circular in plan, its diameter measures 17.2mm and is 8.8mm thick. There is a circular cast hole through the whorl and this is set off centre. The diameter of the hole measures 6.1mm. The whorl weighs 11.87 grams. The spindle whorl is undecorated. It is a mid grey colour with an even but abraded patina which covers all surfaces. Where the patina has been removed a light powdery lead corrosion has developed. The abrasion is most likely to have been caused by movement …

County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 bear faint traces of decoration though it is too worn to be sufficiently determined. The metal has a mid-brown patina and is worn. The spindle whorl is 29.3mm in diameter, 12.4mm thick and weighs 51.1g. The perforation is 9.2mm in diameter. Lead spindle whorls were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty. Decorated examples are thoug…

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded sub-rectangular aperture of length 12.2mm and width 10.3mm, cf. Walton Rogers form A1. Shrinkage lines on the flat face suggest the object was cast in an open mould. Patinated. This may be a whorl used with a spindle of deviant form, or a weight attached to an iron bar as a flywheel or weight, or even as a pommel weight on the tang of a knife - though both the latter uses might be expected to have left rusty residues unless the arrangement had been very short-lived. Or, the hole may have begun round and been su…

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast or miscast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10mm, Walton Rogers form A1; a nick carried across the middle of this on the flat surface of the whorl and repeated as a deeper groove on the convex face may signal its conversion to use as a line weight with tying notch. The poor casting, resulting in a markedly asymmetrical form, might have dictated this 'reuse' from the start. Patinated. The spindle hole and form would be compatible with an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000 Diameter (as found):…

Very abraded and incomplete Late Saxon to post-medieval lead plano-convex spindle whorl. A considerable amount has been lost, as is evidenced by the far from central position of the hole. The break, however, is quite smooth. Weight 11.27g. Estimated diameter 22mm. Thickness 7mm. Hole diameter 8 - 9.5mm. 11th - 16th century. Finders' number AD 800

Lead biconical spindle whorl of uncertain, possibly medieval date (c. AD 1200 - 1500). The spindle whorl is circular in plan and triangular in section, with a circular, central perforation. The perforation is noticeably wider on one side than the other. There appears to have been an unsuccessful attempt made to further perforate the object through the side. The surface of the spindle whorl is worn and pitted with a white patina. The spindle whorl is 28.10mm in diameter, 11.88mm in thickness and weighs 43.71g. The maximum diameter of the central perforation is 7.61mm. The attempt to mo…

Lead conical spindle whorl, probably dating to the early medieval period (c. AD 700 - 1000). The spindle whorl is crudely shaped and unsymmetrical; it is broadly circular in plan and triangular in section, with a circular, central perforation. The spindle whorl has a white patina. It is 16.75mm in diameter, 12.50mm in thickness and weighs 15.90g. The diameter of the central perforation is 8.94mm. The form of this object is similar to examples that have been recorded as early medieval in date. These include: SWYOR-6E4DAA, NLM-5EA8A8 and NLM-09370E.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.8mm, Walton Rogers form B. One flat side is plain, the other, probably the uppermost in an open mould given slight shrinkage lines, appears scalloped around its edge. Patinated. The form and spindle hole size could both point to an Anglo-Scandinavian date, but the unilateral decoration might rather relate this to early post-medieval whorls. Suggested date: Unknown, Early Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1000-1600 Diameter: 24.6mm, Thickness: 8.9mm, Weight: 28.74gms
