VESSEL

Unique ID: YORYM-068271

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

A fragment of a copper alloy Post-Medieval vessel, dating to the period c.AD 1500-1900. The fragment comprises the foot, which is broadly rectangular in plan and square in cross section. An integrally cast semi-circular flat surface is present at the upper terminal, with a worn break around its edge where it would have attached to the vessel. Its lower terminal slopes at an angle of 45 degrees to allow the leg to stand flat. A green-brown patina is on the surface..

A similar, but not identical example is dated to the 18th and 19th centuries (Butler, Green and Payne 2009, p.6), and therefore a wide post-medieval date is suggested for this vessel leg.

The vessel foot measures 32.52mm in length, 13.72mm in width, 7.28mm in thickness and weighs 12.25g.
