A Post Medieval cast copper alloy pot foot with a small remnant of the pot attached, dating to c. AD 1500-1700. The foot is triangular in cross-section, tapering downwards. There are three longitudinal, convex raised ribs running down the front, the central rib protruding further than the others (thus forming the triangular cross-section), and extending further up as it joins the remnant of the pot body. The ribs come together towards the base of the foot. The back of the foot is flat. It has an old irregular break at the lower end. The leg widens and spreads outwards towards the pot body remnant.

The piece is 36.19.mm tall at the front and 26.83mm tall at the back to the point where it meets the pot body.The tallest left side is 41.12mm. Its transverse width tapers from 33.9mm to 19.63mm, while its depth (front to back) tapers from 21.14mm to 10.13mm; it weighs 43.08g. The fragment of pot body is concave (as viewed from above) .
