Record ID: LVPL-D127C2
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Denbighshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified object of possible modern date. The object consists of a curved sub-oval piece of wood, one edge of which has been covered in copper alloy. The wood is cracked and frayed due to drying out and the copper alloy encrusted and corroded. Seven circular rivets attach the copper alloy to the wood. The object is possibly nautical, though its size suggests perhaps from a smaller vessel rather than ship. Possibly the copper/bronze tipping of an oar blade, a fitting off a cutter or lifeboat? Although found within a blue clay layer the rivets suggest a more modern date.
