lyme regis There's a house on the sea front which has some very fancy lead rainwater features - this photo shows only a small section of it. But if you look closer, what seems at first sight to be a lead rainwater hopper also has a spout, and furthermore also has what looks very much like a traditional lead "rat's tail". So is this a pump component which has found a new use, or were they produced in such a way as to be dual-purpose?

Markings: Some floral decoration - none other.

Manufacturer: Unk.
