A leg from a medieval cooking vessel such as a skillet. Only the lower part of the leg survives. It is rectangular in section and has an out-turned foot. There is no decoration or moulding. The base of the foot seems to be sooted, indicating that the leg is from a cooking vessel rather than an ewer. It has a patchy grey green patina. The breaks are patinated.
