VESSEL

Unique ID: DENO-BB3599

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

A lead fragment, possibly from the tip of a leg of a small cast vessel, possibly a posnet or skillet, of probable post-medieval date. The object is abraded, but seems to be formed from two conjoined ribs, giving an overall D-shape section, there is no well defined foot, the object tapers to a simple blunt point. The surface texture would indicate sand casting.

Butler and Green (2003) suggest that this simple form became common in sand cast 18th and 19th century skillets.

Length 19 mm, width 18.1 tapering to 11.2 mm
