Flat circular lead weight. It has two central circular perforations and is slightly bent out of shape. Despite looking like a button, these weights were and are used to weigh down the hems of curtains, and perhaps also skirts. They seem to come into use perhaps in the eighteenth century, and are still available to buy today.

Lead bag/cloth seal from the 19th century. It is sub-circular in plan and has been bent. The upper face has three lines of letters in relief, they are worn and so difficult to read but could be cyrillic as Russian seals are known in Britain.
