Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Two conjoining fragments of a cast copper alloy turned vessel of probable late medieval to post medieval date (1400 - 1650). The fragment consists of part of the rim and small section of the sidewall. The internal and external surfaces have a brushed / turned surface. The vessel fragments are a mid green grey colour with a coroded surface patina.

The fragments when joined measures 55.8mm length, 41.2mm width, is 4.1mm thick at rim and 2.2mm thick body; it weighs 21.25 grams. When conjoined the external diameter of the plate can be projected - suggesting it was originally at least 40cm wide although less than 5% of teh rim is extant making this measurement unrealiable
