Seller: locomotionnumber1 (1,254) 100%, Location: Loughborough, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 254373990979 This listing is for an antique sink plug that is very heavy weighing 0.315 Kg or 0.694 Lbs and measures 6 cm in diameter. The sink plug appears to be fashioned being cast and then beaten from I think lead metal. One side appears to have been clipped as hundreds of years ago when items were surplus or redundant lead would be taken to make other objects. I got the plug from a builder friend with two vintage locks which he told me were from a house that was 200 years old in Northampton. The plug was also recovered during renovations which dated back to medieval times and there is the possibility that the plug could have come from an older property on the site. I cannot be any more specific than this. I have used the plug as a paper weight as its original purpose has passed. Really it is are survivor of the social history of the period. Postage is £2.90 with Royal Mail as when packaged the plug is of small parcel size. I will supply proof and cost of posting. I can find no other examples of such a plug on Ebay or else where. I originally listed this antique sink plug at £20.00. The plug has received 176 views to date and I have reduced the listing to £7.95. I would be pleased to consider offers and hope the plug finds a new home with a sink missing a plug soon. Thank you for reading my listing. Type: Sink Plug, Original/Reproduction: Antique Original
