Cast copper alloy receptacle leg, probably from a small cauldron or skillet, triangular in plan, profile and section, with a large central mid-rib, flanked by a slightly narrower rib either side, and tapering from the triangular fragment of the body of the vessel at its upper end, to a pointed end at its foot. The back of the leg is flat and the end of the foot is worn, particularly on one side from use wear, so that it looks deliberately narrowed or pinched.

Read (1988) illustrates a similar example on page 96, no.596, which is dated from the 13th to the 17th century.

Butler & Green (2003) illustrate a cauldron with similar tapered legs on page 152, No.157, and a skillet on page 145, No.151, which are both dated from the 17th century.
