Lead alloy toy figurine. A hollow-cast, three dimensional, female figure in 16th century costume, one hand and lower arm missing. This figurine is made from a three part mould. The genral style of dress of this figurine point to German and Swiss fashions around the area of Frankfurt, Cologne and Geneva during the mid- late 16th century. This toy figurine was found at the River Thames foreshore.
