Description: A leather-worker’s cast lead palm guard. The guard is oval in plan with one flat and one convex surface. It would have been wrapped in cloth or held in a pouch, and used to force needles through the tough material, while protecting the user’s palm.

Note regarding identification
The identification of these objects as palm guards is currently under review. The invariable absence of any indentations that might result from pressure on the end of a needle would seem inconsistent with this type of use.

Description: A leather worker’s cast lead palm guard. One surface is flat and the other is convex with a central circular indentation. The guard would have been wrapped in cloth or held in a pouch, and used to force needles through the tough material, while protecting the user’s palm. The indentation would prevent the needle from glancing off the surface. The shape of the guard suggests that it may have been cast in a mould made with an oyster-shell.

The recorder notes that "Needle marks can be seen close to the central circular indentation."

Description: Leather worker’s cast lead palm guard. One surface is flat and the other is convex with two indentations. The guard would have been wrapped in cloth or held in a pouch, and used to force needles through the tough material, while protecting the user’s palm. The indentations would prevent the needle from glancing off the surface. Due to their characteristic convex oval shape, it has been suggested that oyster shells were used for moulding such guards.
