A leg of a copper alloy vessel, probably a cooking pot or cauldron of Medieval or Post-Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1600. The leg is curved in cross-section but with deep fluting on the front face (two hollows and three ridges). The base is rounded and worn. The top edge is an old break. It has a dark grey patina with sooting. 

The object is 25.2mm long, 36.9mm wide and 11.2mm thick.  It weighs 35.26g.

Various Medieval pot legs are illustrated in Egan, G. 1998. The Medieval Household. Daily Living c.1150-c.1450, page.164, figure. 132. Egan comments that commonly used cooking vessels in the Medieval period include skillets, ewers, and cauldrons. See also Butler, Green and Payne 2009 page 6 figure 4 (b) where the leg is similar in cross section.
