Fragment of everted rim from a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel. The fragment is roughly triangular, with the longest edge formed by the angle between the body of the vessel and the rim. There are then two tapering breaks which run out to the edge of the rim, a short length of which survives. There is some sooting on the outside of the rim, and a brownish-white deposit on the inside which looks like solder.
