Another few finds from over the years:-

A Jews harp minus the twanger found on my very first permission, not sure what age this would be.
A nice little Toy Cannon found on a coastal path, probably ornamental. Only about 2" long in total.
And finally one half of an 18th century Sword Guard. The design is a winged figure with various weapons radiating around it.

All good interesting finds, I love finding old toys. I’ve never found a cannon but I’ve had a few soldiers and farm animals in the past.
Thanks for posting the pictures.

Ah the little cannon. I remember them well. A favourite for the wall shadow box back in the 60’s. Think I might have had one :D
Never found a Jews Harp. That one’s a bit different to most. Nice find.
Wonder what happened to the rest of the sword. I s’pose it would have been a ceremonial one, show only type to maybe ornamental ?
Once again, some nice finds Steve :thumbsup:
