Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: City of Derby
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast copper alloy unidentified object of probable 17th century date. The object is a circular disc with a decorated convex face and a hollow reverse. An integral circular stem projects slightly from the centre of the decorated face and provides an attachment point or axis bar for a curved, decorative bar which terminates in a loop which articulates with the stem. The bar has a projecting flat knob on the back of the curve, and terminates in a oval projecting knop, described by some viewers as phallic. Both sides of the curved bar are decorated with foliage patterns. The disck as a di…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A cast, copper alloy artefact, probably a Post Medieval dress fastener or toggle dating from about AD 1600 - 1800. The date and function of objects of this form is debated, being either a Late Iron Age or Roman cosmetic pestle, or a Post Medieval clothing fastener toggle. It consists of a rounded body in the shape of a pointed oval, from one side of which extends a short, circular shaft ending in a pair of rings positioned side by side. A casting seam is visible along the length of the solid body on the face opposite the shaft. The pestle has a dark brown patina. It is 25.8mm long, 19…

A copper alloy Post Medieval medallion commemorating Admiral Vernon's successful capture of Portobello harbour (in modern Panama) in 1739. Hundreds of different Portobello medals were struck following Vernon's famous victory. This medallion is very worn and corroded, but appears to be a type similar to Betts 266 which shows Admiral Vernon and Commodore Brown on the obverse, and the harbour and the six ships with which it was taken on the reverse. Compare http://www.coins-of-panama.com/vernon/vn2-280.html?Size=SmallNOen There are many different varieties showing Vernon and Brown, but n…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete, cast copper alloy, openwork hooked tag dating from the early post-Medieval period, AD 1500 - 1650. The body of the tag is sub-circular, with convex sides tapering to a point at the base and a flat top. The openwork design on the body consists of a plain cross with four circular perforations in each angle. Most of the design, except for two of the circular perforations, has been filled in by corrosion products. There is a rectangular attachment loop, now broken, projecting from the top. The curved hook that would have depended from the pointed base has broken away and i…

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An iron key (locking) of Medieval or Post Medieval date. It fits into Type 7 of the Goodall Classification used at Winchester and Salisbury (Salisbury Medieval Catalogue Volume 4), being a key with an asymmetrical bit and shaft projecting beyond the bit. These and Type 8 keys probably date from 1150 through to 1700. The style of the bow (with a bifid projection into the D shaped bow at the top of the shaft) suggests a 15th or 16th century date or later similar to examples in Bailey (2002). The stem is solid and the rectangular bit has a full depth T shaped cleft in the side furthest f…

A Post Medieval silver coin; a shilling of William III (AD 1694 - 1702) which has been reused, probably as a love token, by polishing it smooth and stamping it with punched marks. The coin has a diameter of 25.18mm and is 0.97mm thick. 4.34g. See Spink number 3497 - 3519.

The centre of the obvers has been stamped (possibly engraved) with a florid W and a second letter or two, perhaps an N. The reverse is stamped near the centre with an arrow o…

Object type: THIMBLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead alloy probable palm guard or sailmaker's glove of Post Medieval date. The object is a D shaped sheet of thick lead. Unusually it is decorated with rouletted lines of crescents. Much of the decoration is faint and the overall design is hard to interpret, but a circle divided into six segments is visible on one face, with further curved and straight lines of rouletted decoration on that face and the other. The possible palm guard does not have the circular depressions commonly seen on these objects and believed to provide a rest for the needle, casting doubt on the identification.…

A lead alloy possible weight of Post Medieval date. The object is circular in plan and has convex sides. One face is dished and is marked with scratches radiating from the centre. The opposite face has similar scratches, but more of them, and has three concavities with a raised rim and a higher point in the centre. The scratches may be caused by rodent gnawing, but they are probably not random enough for this. The object has a well developed white patina with patches of dark brown. At almost half an ounce in mass (14.04g.), it may have been intended as a 1/2oz weight. It could also hav…
