Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A fragment of a cast copper alloy vessel of medieval date. The fragment is part of the leg of a probable cooking vessel. The leg is roughly D-shaped in section with a concave reverse and a raised central ridge. The foot of the leg is broken and worn and the top terminates where it would have joined to the body of the vessel. The leg is undecorated.
The metal is a dark brownish-black colour and is worn. The fragment is 85.7mm long, 45.5mm wide, 14mm thick and weighs 128g.
While it is not possible to allocate this fragment to a specific type a mid 13th to 16th century date is generally accepted for copper alloy cooking vessels.
