A toy top is, as the name implies, a children’s toy, consisting of a truncated cone which is set to spin on its point. It’s a period charge, found in the canting arms of Topclyff, 1391 [DBA2 401]. The illustration is taken from a Brueghel painting, “Young folk at play”, c.1560. The toy top has its point to base by default.
