Anyone want to hazard a guess?
« on: September 17, 2017, 08:55:35 PM »
This is a wee thing I found yesterday on only my second ever dig.  It is not in any way shape or form of any great interest but I am curious seeing as all the other stuff I have dug up so far has been bits of farm junk and a single completely featureless coin shaped object.

It's about an inch long, appears to be made of copper or bronze and looks a bit like a 3-toed "foot" off something or maybe the end of a tiny spoon or ladle?  Apologies for the rubbish mobile photos.

Hmm, that's odd, yes it is Photobucket.  Are there issues with this site?  I see them.

I can't see the picture either but given your description it could be a marker from a gunter's chain.

I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself..

Not quite like that, it is a snapped off piece with no gaps at the toes.  I need to fix these images, will try another hosting site.

It looks like a lions paw style furniture foot, maybe off a wooden tea caddy or a small clock case, or something about that size.
I've found a few of the larger versions, some in brass and others in some sort of cast alloy.
