Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with a 15 mm wide internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly, in profile, to suggest a shallow straight-sided bowl, and the curvature of the rim, in plan, suggests a diameter of about 300 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 6 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 5 mm thick. The interior surface of the fragment is pitted from the sand casting process and the exterior surface has many parallel horizontal lines which ar…

A rim fragment from a cast copper alloy cauldron. The fragment is 75 mm in width, 41 mm in height and 3.5 mm thick, widening to 6 mm thick at the rim and a weight of 57.3 g. The rim is out-turned and bevelled on its inner edge with the upper face flat, so that it is triangular in section. The curvature of the rim suggests that it would have been 280 mm in diameter which falls comfortably within the normal range for a cauldron and suggests a vessel with a capacity of between 4½ and 6 gallons. The exterior surface is rough and has patches of black burnt organic matter encrusted on to th…

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl or a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the curvature of the rim suggests a diameter of about 320 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 7 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 6 mm thick. The surface of the interior and exterior is mottled black burnt organic material, which suggests that the vess…

Incomplete cast copper alloy barrel tap missing its tap key, which would have slotted into the square socket or trunnion around the rectangular pin inside. The key would have originally turned in the trunnion to allow the liquid to flow through an opening to the spout. The key opened and closed a valve, and below the socket the projecting housing in which the valve turned was adjustable by a slotted screw head. The barrel tap has a circular sectioned spigot which tapers towards the end for fitting into the barrel. The end is capped by a circular element with one central perforation, 2…

Fragment of a cast copper alloy spur with a side that is hemispherical in section, with a lateral figure-eight terminal. One of the loops of the figure-eight terminal holds the hook of a stud chape which would in turn have attached to the undersole leather of the boot, to secure the spur. The hook expands into a circular plate which extends to a pointed terminal that holds the stud which is teardrop-shaped in plan and plano-convex in profile. There are patches of dark green patina on the surface of the side of the spur, but the chape is more corroded. Read (1988) illustrates a simi…

Solid cast lead handle from the butt end of a toy pistol with two circular apertures at the broken end, within an expanded collar, which would have attached to the body of the gun. The central aperture is 4 mm in diameter, and judging from a complete example recorded in SWYOR-4634F5, the aperture would have held an iron rod to attach it to the barrel of the gun. The complete example has another matching collar at the end of the barrel, and a trigger mechanism to enable the gun to be fired. The handle has been decorated on both sides with three moulded curved lines, defined by four rec…

Incomplete cast copper alloy sword belt hanger, missing its hook at one end, with openwork decoration in the form of a trefoil plate with three apertures: two teardrop-shaped and one heart-shaped. The plate then narrows to a bifurcate collar, and then tapers slightly to a bar which is rectangular in plan, profile and section, and broken at its terminus. There is a rounded knop beyond the ovoid plate, which probably extended to encompass a rivet hole at this end of the hanger, and there may have been another attachment plate at the opposite end where the hanger tapers and is broken. Th…

Copper alloy counter of a spade half-guinea of George III, but produced many years after the half-guinea became obsolete, even though it is dated to 1788 on the reverse, this is an arbitrary date. There was a revival later in the 19th century, during Victoria's reign, because the counters could not be confused with the coins that were legal tender at the time. The imitation is quite crude and the counter is worn and corroded so that it is difficult to read the reverse legend, but it appears to be the common legend: IN MEMORY OF THE GOOD OLD DAYS, rather than the name and address of a …

Incomplete cast copper alloy barrel tap with a broken T-shaped tap key, with arms that are circular in section, which is slotted into the cylindrical socket or trunnion. The key turns within the trunnion to allow the liquid to flow through an opening to the spout. The key opened and closed a valve, and below the socket the projecting housing in which the valve turned was adjustable by a slotted screw head. The barrel tap has a circular sectioned spigot which tapers towards the end for fitting into the barrel. The end of the spigot is missing which would have been capped and had longit…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete sheet copper alloy miniature shoe, missing part of the sole, near the toe, and the heel, with two rectangular attachments for staples or studs to attach the shoe to the foot of a doll, probably made of wood. But the shoe is quite large for a doll's shoe and these are not normally made of metal, so it is more likely that this shoe would have held a pin cushion with the staples, within the aperture of the shoe. The recorder has seen similar brass examples of pin cushion holders on-line in the form of a Victorian shoe with a pointed toe and heel, and a decorative plate above t…

Gilt copper alloy 'dandy' button, octagonal in plan and flat in profile, but missing its attachment loop on the back. The button face has been incised and then gilded with a central six-petalled flower within a circle, surrounded by ten waisted trefoils bordered with pellets. Beyond these trefoils is a solid circular band with an outer border of solid semi-circular indented leaves within zig-zag arches.The small amount of gilding that remains around the edge of the button retains a few of the motifs from a pattern of what appears to be stars within further arches, creating a scalloped…

Gilt copper alloy 'dandy' button, circular in plan and flat in profile, but missing its attachment loop on the back. The button face has been incised and then gilded with a central cross of nine pellets within a four-petalled flower. From each arched angle, between the petals, emanates an arm of a four-armed cross of bifid, V-shaped leaf motifs. The gilding that remains in the fields between the arms of the cross retains the chequered pattern of incised rows of pellets on a gird, creating a patchwork effect, perhaps trying to emulate woven textiles. Bailey (2004) illustrates a simi…

Four stamped copper alloy coin weights for the gold guineas and half guineas of George III (1760-1820) issued by Street & Pyke of Bridgwater (1773-1800), dated to 1775 on the reverses. The four weights all have 'STREET & PYKE' on the obverses, and 'NEW STAND' (for 'new standard') and 1775 on the reverses. Each weight has numerals below the letters 'P' (for pennyweight) and 'G' (for grain). One coin weight, which weighs 8.3 g, has the numerals '5 : 8' under these letters, which would equate to 5 pennyweights and 8 grains. One pennyweight equates to 24 grains (Withers, 1995, 53), so …
