Lead box?

Post by Davies13 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 1:14 pm

Hi

Any ideas on this lead lid or box? Appears to have a small bit of wool as if it was lined. There was a small peice inside which is next to it on the photo.

That may be an improvised lid for a pot rather than a box. ::g

PS You're pasture seems to have far more finds than mine does! :D
