A cast lead-alloy handle moulded in the form of a eight-petalled flower with a central boss.
Although usually identified as handles from tobacco-jar lids - and some were certainly used in this way (see ref. below) - a number have been found with fragments of tin-plate/sheet-steel attached. This is inconsistent with use on a tobacco jar, as they were invariably of lead. It seems likely, therefore, that the handles were produced as stock items, which were fitted to the lids of a number of different types of domestic vessel.
