VESSEL

Unique ID: NMGW-66C5E5

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Rim fragment of a vessel, probably of Late Medieval date. The fragment is relatively thin and is suggestive of a vessel with a comparatively small rim diameter (originally approximately 70mm), possibly suggesting a fragment from a jug or tankard, similar to a mid 14th century tankard found at Caerphilly Castle (Lewis, 1978). The vessel has an incised or turned decorative band on the exterior, at the position of slight shoulder, two narrower incised lines flank the band.
