Domed Lead Ingot, Whithorn

A small plano-convex lead ingot, or waster, of lead. From its shape it appears to have been melted in a shallow bowl or container, probably of clay. after partial cooling it was lifted out by a pair of tongs, which have left a circular impression on one edge. Being not fully cooled, the molten centre has slopped outward, moving in the opposite direction from the tong marks.
