VESSEL

Unique ID: SF9100

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Cast copper-alloy leg from a cooking vessel, now incomplete. The top survives, with a smooth curved surface which could be soldered to the body of the vessel. The reverse is flat, but the front is lumpy and it is hard to see any deliberate design features. There is some sooting on all surfaces including the top. The break is old and worn.
