Fragment from a copper alloy vessel. This is a large vessel leg probably from a cauldron. The fragment consists of the foot and part of the leg, which is has an irregular break at the top. The leg is tri-lobate in section with a rounded, prominent ridge running up the centre of the front of the leg. The back of the leg is flat. The foot projects forwards from the leg and has a triangular profile. The base of the foot apears mis-cast and is slightly hollowed and rough.The surface of the leg is quite pitted and bumpy. This also indicates mis-casting and poor finishing. Late medieval to post medieval (possibly 15th to 18th century). Dimensions: 57.31 mm x 55.36 mm x 32.96 mm Weight: g
