A large pot leg fragment from a cast copper alloy vessel. The fragment consists of part of the foot and leg. The reverse of the object is flat. There are two prominent vertical raised ridges running down the centre of the leg. The leg has a triangular section. All the breaks are worn. The surface of the metal is pitted with a mid greyish-green patina. Due to a lack of context it is not possible to closely date this object, although it is medieval to post medieval in date.
