Tin Figurine. A seated figurine made from tin, with a little zinc

A seated figurine made from tin, with a little zinc. The figurine was found in 1853, three metres below the surface on Bodwen Moor, Lanlivery, Cornwall, near the site of an old smelting house or Jews house. Hebrew characters are still visible, variously interpreted as signifying Rapacious Eagle and Jehovah is our King. Jewish settlers were involved in mining and smelting, especially following the Norman invasion of England and until their expulsion by King Edward I in 1290. When it was found, the figure was wearing a crown which was lost after it was taken to Lanhydrock House. The figure was gifted to the Royal Institution of Cornwall in 1948 by Lord Robartes of Lanhydrock. 13th century. Sculptor: Unknown
