Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A Medieval to post-Medieval leg from a cast copper-alloy cooking vessel (c. 1250-c. 1650 AD).
The object is sub-circular in cross-section and has a small portion of the body of the vessel at one end. The other end is in the form of an irregular break.

It has a mid-green patina which is overlain in places with a black substance, probably consolidated soot.

54.64 x 17.42 x 16.49mm. Maximum diameter of leg: 11.28mm. Weight: 42.06g.

Similar legs were common on all types of cooking vessels, cauldrons, skillets, posnets and ewers.

Cast cooking vessels seem to have come into use in the second half of the 13th century and to have continued at least until c. 1600 (Geake 2001: 52).
