Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast lead alloy cloth seal with a stylised root plant on the obverse with five stems with petals on the obverse, perhaps representing the madder root which was used to dye clothing. The reverse has four circumferential grooves on it in one half and the other half is covered by the other disc and folded strip so is illegible. Egan (1995) illustrates a similar weavers or searchers personal seal with a stylised root plant with five roseate flowers on the obverse and an illegible reverse on page 184, fig.33, no.250, which is dated from the 17th century.

Incomplete cast lead alloy candle holder. The upper bowl which contained the candle is tulip shaped with moulded petal decoration on its sides. The everted rim of the bowl is 40 mm in diameter whilst the candle holder's total height in its incomplete state is 68 mm. Below the bowl there is a circumferential collar, 24 mm in diameter, around the neck which is 17 mm in diameter. Its base is broken but looks to be spherical, potentially suggesting it was part of a larger candelabrum or tall candlestick. The base is decorated with moulded fleurs de lis, creating arches, where there would …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete lead alloy powder flask cap or measure with the edges folded in so that is no longer ovate in plan. There is a hole in the centre of the lid and a notch on either edge between two knops which are the bases of two side loops that were originally attached on either side. The cap has been pressed from both sides so that the edges almost meet at the apex and the lid is more ovate than it would have been originally. The comparatively thin sides would have flared outwards towards the oval or circular mouth of the powder flask. The powder cap would have been part of a powder-charg…

Incomplete cast pewter tablespoon stem with a moulded central ridge that runs along the length of the stem from the break to the terminal. There are three marks on the back of the stem, a crown, surmounted by an 'X' and above that, a vessel with a stem and bifid sides within a shield, but there is more above within the border of the shield that has worn away. The X should be crowned and then would be a quality mark, but here the X is above the crown. By the end of the 17th century pewterers were using a crowned X to indicate harder alloys, but as time went on all control over the use …

Incomplete cast lead alloy button, circular in plan and domed in profile, with a central raised pellet with nine spokes emanating from it, which terminate in a circular border that runs around the edge of the button, to create the appearance of a wheel. Between each spoke is a single pellet, just within the circular border. The back of the button has a moulded line that crosses the diameter of the button which is the base of what was probably a simple looped shank in the centre.

Cast lead alloy knop or finial for a walking stick or cane with moulded decoration tha spirals from a central point at the apex of the finial to the border at the base of the finial. The border consists of moulded roundels with incised crosses alternating with moulded stars and crescents. The finial is hollow and would have been mounted on to a wooden cane and this has since corroded away, but has reacted with the surface of the lead alloy to create a white powder, which was found in the interior of the finial. Bailey (1997) illustrates a similar pewter walking stick top decorated …

Fragment of the base of a cast lead alloy vessel with a longitudinal casting seam up the side of the body of the vessel and incised vertical parallel lines along the edge of the base ring. Within the ring, the base extends inwards, suggesting that it was flat and that this is not a rim fragment. The curvature of the base suggests a diameter of about 32 mm, which expanded, possibly in both directions, from this ring. The diameter is quite tapered, suggesting that it may be the base of the body of the vessel, which then narrowed into a pedestal that was about the same diameter and then …

Cast lead alloy bird feeder or water trough, flattened so that both sides now meet, when it would have originally been D-shaped in plan. One side would have been flat to fit flush with the wall or the side of the cage. The base of the feeder would have been flat and the body would have flared upward from the base, with a flanged rim. There is now a recessed groove where the rim would have flanged outwards, with a raised moulded band above it that runs around the circumference of the feeder. The upper edge of the rim is also decorated with a band of raised pellets between two raised li…

Incomplete cast tin alloy spoon bowl, missing its edge around the circumference of the bowl and everything but the base of the stem. The bowl would have originally been oval in plan and less lozenge-shaped, but still elongated in relation to the stem. Where the stem meets the bowl and the back, there is a raised oval area known as a 'drop' which was used to stengthen the spoon, which is 12 mm long and 10 mm wide. The remains of the stem extends 42 mm beyond the bowl. The broken stem is worn and corroded but appears lozenge-shaped in section and is 7 mm long, 6 mm wide and 4 mm thick. …

Cast lead Russian oval flax bale seal, bulla type with two squashed sub-rectangular slots diagonally opposite each other on each side of the seal, which would have allowed two sealing cords, usually made of iron wire, to pass through the seal and attach it to the bale of cloth. The crimping tool held two separate dies, one side for the inspector and the other for the grower, owner and agent (Ged Dodd pers comm). The obverse reads: *N* / 21 which refers to the inspection post number near St Petersburg, the port of inspection. There was a shallow 8'-9" depth barrier on the Neva river…

Fragment of a cast pewter vessel handle with a circular hinge and a V-shaped lever with a moulded bifid finial for the thumbpiece. The V-shaped lever, opposite the thumbpiece, would have attached to the lid of the vessel and still retains some of its decorative raised ridges that run parallel to the edge of the attachment. The handle would have originally extended beyond the hinge, below the finial, and would have attached to the rim of the vessel on the other side of the hinge, below the lid. The fragment is very corroded and flaking, so it is difficult to be sure what the complete h…

Rim fragment of a cast pewter vessel with an everted rim. The dark grey matt patina is consistent with corrosion for post-medieval pewter, according to experts of the Pewter Society, but it may have more tin in it than usual as it is brittle and delaminating as it breaks down into layers. From the curvature of the fragment, the diameter of the vessel is about 70 mm, which would suggest an upright tankard or smaller vessel such as a 'pyx' or a container to carry the consecrated host. North (1999) illustrates tankards with an everted rim for the lid to rest on, on pages 80-1, Nos.72…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Rim fragment of a cast pewter plate with an internally bevelled fillet. There are patches of black burnt residue on the interior of the fragment, inside the fillet, and over much of the exterior, suggesting that the plate may have been rested in burnt material or something organic that has then combined with the corrosion product on the surface. Much of the interior has a good dark grey matt patina, and the weight, look and sound of the metal suggests that there is more lead in it than is usual for Medieval pewter and is therefore more likely Post-medieval in date, according to expert…
