As they are so rarely seen ever, attached find some details of three scourers from my collection.

The one in the first image, finely made and preserved in excavated condition, can be dated to the early decades of the 16th c., while the lower two are perfectly preserved, retaining all their original file traces plus fine patina, being about 100 years later/'younger'.

The first is about 8 cm long, the other two are about 6 cm.
