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 flat reverse and two raised ridges on the front. The foot of the leg is worn and the top terminates in an irregular and worn break. The leg is undecorated.
The metal is a dark greenish-black patina colour and is worn. The fragment is 43.8mm long, 36.2mm wide, 16.7mm thick and weighs 76g.
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.
