UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT

Unique ID: SF6291

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Unidentified object made from cast copper alloy. It consists of a central stem and three side branches; the stem has a central rib on one face and has a fragment of a projecting corner at the base on the other face. The break here is old. The lowest side branch extends upwards and away from the stem in a straight line; the next one is on the other side, and is similar but longer and at a less acute angle. The third is back on the first side and is short and curved. The stem then ends in a point. The object has a hand-made look and a grey, surface-enriched or white-metal coated surface with patches of green patina showing through.
