VESSEL

Unique ID: SF8719

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Cast copper-alloy tubular spout in the form of a dog's head. It was cast separately from the rest of the vessel and soldered on via a long sloping seam. The spout quickly tapers to become tubular; the end has a pair of upright rectangular slightly fluted ears, a moulded brow and muzzle with no extra decoration in the way of eyes, and open jaws between which a short cylinder projects to finish the spout. This is a simple example of a well-known 15th century type; it would originally have been attached to a pedestal-base ewer (see Lewis 1987, fig. 8A).
