Unique ID: NMGW-71A711

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Cast copper alloy cauldron or skillet leg of Medieval date, probably dating from 13th - 16th century. The front of the leg has a prominent central rib and two side ribs near the top of the leg, where the leg joins the vessel. The rear of the leg has two chamfered edges. The interior of the vessel is present at the apex of the leg, which shows ancient breaks around its edge. One half of the front of the leg has been recently cleaned by the finder, the remainder of the leg exhibits heavy carbon deposits as a result of repeated burning, as would be expected on the surface of a cooking vessel.
