 Description

An incomplete Post Medieval copper alloy cosmetic set. The set comprises a pair of complete composite tweezers in the form of two long thin trapezoidal plates secured with a small copper alloy rivet at the narrow end. Also secured by the rivet is a tooth pick made from a bifurcated plate. The remains of one other cosmetic item is still attached at one side by the rivet but this has been broken away by an old break. A very similar example can be seen in Egan(1991) page 378 ref 1756. This example is dated to c. AD 1350-1400.

 Description

An incomplete post medieval spoon, dating to the period c.AD 1550-1650, comprising the knop and part of the handle. The knop is of the 'seal top' or 'baluster seal' type and bears a resemblance to Homer's Type A (Homer 1975, 38). The terminus exhibits a flat circular disk which tapers down to a waist and then expands to a flattened globular baluster. This narrows before expanding to a moulded band. The knop narrows to the handle which is oval in cross section and the handle terminates in a worn break.

 Description

Post Medieval copper alloy ring pipe tamper with a circular bezel that was probably originally engraved as a seal matrix or signet. On the opposite side of the ring to the bezel is a collared projection from which the screw on tamper and lower section of the reamer are missing. This style of pipe tamper generally dates from the second half of the 17th century, but this one could date to anytime between c1650 and c1800 AD.
