Context: Well Feature 1002, Level 34, Lot 2301

Context Date Range: c. 1711-1895

Metal: Copper alloy

Tine Length: Domes are 0.35”, Asymmetrical examples have unmeasurable broken tines

Leather Thickness: 0.1”-0.15”

Description:
Plain domes are outlined around the edge and show evidence of tinning. Asymmetrical examples also may have been tinned. Leather is intact on four of the five pieces, one of which shows the arrangement of the dome and asymmetric piece on one leather fragment. This leather fragment also has an area with contour that fits the dome that has no leather attached. If that dome had indeed been placed there, the domes would have been very close together on the original piece.
