VESSEL

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

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a bowl or cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim that is triangular in profile and flush with the upper edge of the vessel. The body of the vessel curves downwards slightly to suggest a reasonably deep straight-sided bowl or a deep straight-sided everted rim, as seen on cauldrons, and the curvature of the rim suggests a diameter of about 280 mm. The bevelled rim itself is 5 mm thick which then tapers to the body which is 3.6 mm thick. There are patches of burnt organic material on the exterior of the fragment, which suggests that the vessel was used for cooking.

Ottaway and Rogers (2002) illustrate a similar fragment of a cooking vessel with an internally bevelled rim on page 2810, fig.1394, no.14197, which is dated from the mid 15th century to the early 17th century.

Butler & Green (2003) illustrate cauldrons with internally bevelled rims on page 119, No.119, which is dated from the 17th century, and on page 142, no.145, which is dated to c.1500.

Egan (2005) illustrates a similar example of a bowl fragment with a flared rim and straight-sided body on page 99, Fig.85, No.444, which is dated from c.1550-1600.
