West Country Lead Green Man

West Country Green Man

This wonderful Green Man is a recent metal detector find in the West Country. If anyone can shed any light on possible age or use of this lead green man we would be most grateful.  The size is 6.4cm high and 6.5cm wide.

It has been reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme but it is a bit of an enigma and they have not been able to hazard a date for it!

Kath Stonedog has suggested that it might be a vessel mount.
