Bottle Seal | This was found in Wapping near where the Mayflower set sail for America, and its image looks a lot like this ship. Many drinking establishments with their own bottle seals would have been in this area, to support the thriving shipping and trading industry.
Medieval knicker-shaped padlock | This padlock to me conjures up an image of a dungeon door and you start wondering who this padlock was keeping locked up. Likely to be French and Medieval in date.
Copper Alloy Love Token | I love this coin that is now a token, it has stamped on it ‘William Hay Dunse and Ceatron Whithead’. I like to think they were sweethearts and it was given as a love token. There was a family called Hay that owned Dunse Castle in Scotland it is now called Duns Castle.

Victorian ointment pot | It reads: ‘Riches's Renovating & Sanative ointment, prepared only at the warehouse, 3 Little Charles st, Parliament st., Westminster’ | At first I thought it was a modern garden flower pot, as all I could see was a small green edge sticking out of the mud, and I walked passed it. But as it was a slow day, I went back and was amazed that it was in one piece!
