Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Four disc lead late Medieval- Post Medieval cloth seal, unused, dating to 1400- 1800. It is complete, and has been folded in half, but not put together, and not stamped with any design. Disc 1 has the conical stud on the reverse, which fits through the hole of Disc 4. The seal has been folded at the connecting strip between Discs 2 and 3. Each of the discs is sub-circular.

Object type: TOY
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Redcar and Cleveland
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead ship/boat, Post Medieval in date, some sort of toy. The ship is flat on the base so that it sits on a surface. It has its sails unfurled and they are curving to indicate wind from behind the ship. It is a little worn but it appears there is a person sat/stood at the rear of the boat, possibly steering it. This is a toy of some sorts, possibly a version of a shy cock, where the aim would be to knock it over, or possibly just a toy by itself. Lead was used to make toys from the late Medieval period onwards and there is a huge variation.
