Cast copper alloy miniature anvil. Most likely made as a toy and dating to the 19th century. It appears complete and is a typical anvil shape. There is a central rectangular body with a conical spike from the 2 short sides at the top. Geoff Egan has seen a photograph of this object and says it is possible it was used for very fine metalwork but that there should be a more substantial integral means of fixture.

Cast lead owl standing 52mm high, probably dating to the 18/19th centuries. It is solid and has detail on both faces. The owl is depicted with large eyes, a hooked beak, pointed ears and detail on the wing, breast and tail being picked out. It appears to have been attached to something as there is a broken base, measuring 12mm in diameter, at the end of the feet. Geoff Egan has said 'It is possible that it is part of the series of 'shy' toys, like a shy cock, set up to be knocked down by having sticks thrown at it'. If this is so the owl would have been on a larger base to enable it…
