A couple of artefacts from today

Post by statbloke » Thu Oct 12, 2017 11:10 pm

I had my first go back on the stubble field today since the harvest where have had some nice Roman finds before including strapends, enamelled mounts, locks pins, etc + stacks of 3rd/4th century bronzes plus a few later hammies. Couple of grots plus these two today. Aplogies for lack of scale, the bar is about 9.5 cm long and the pin about 3.5 cm long. Any suggestions gratefully received. Both are copper / bronze.

Nice artefacts ::g

I think the first item is some sort of (drop?) handle maybe off a vessel, like this one:

I think the second item is part of a pipe tamper:

Thanks for the suggestions. Wishing I'd spotted the drop handle resemblance myself now - 100% with you on that. I can see where you are coming from on the second one ::g
