Help with a few unknown items please... some photos now added

Post by Steevo45 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 7:22 pm

Can any one help me ID any of these items all found on pasture with my cs3mxi (so no numbers to give) on pasture. The first item is very thin and appears to be a pheasant or peacock? Second item is jet black but I'm assuming it copper alloy but very old? Maybe a annular brooch fragment? Third item I thought was a toy cannon but can't find any pics of another flat one any where. And lastly.. I ain't got a clue about very heavy and has diffrent sized "cups" in either end, maybe some kind of mould?? I don't expect them to be anything very good but all have me a bit lost as to ŵhat they are/ were

Thanks in advance
Steve

Lots of flat lead toy cannons about. Mostly Victorian.

There is another common version where the gun faces up at about a 45 degree angle. ::g

Same applies to the bird if it is lead or painted lead. Sounds as though kids were playing in the area. :D

The cannon copper will hopefully get the pictures sorted tomorrow to show them and the pheasant/peacock is a oval plate type item guessing some kind of decorative item

Would fit with it being a pheasant if it's from a shotgun. Would be quite fitting too. as I used to go to the same fields beating for the shoot days with my dad when I was a kid
