A fragment (foot) of a leg of a cast copper alloy vessel of Medieval to Post Medieval date (c. AD 1400 - AD 1750). The leg has a triangular section, expanding into a flat sub-triangular foot set at an angle. One corner of this triangular foot is missing, due to what appears to be an old break. The opposing end of the leg terminates in a break, probably post depositional. All surfaces including the breaks have a green pattina. The foot is probably from a tripod vessel such as a postnet, skillet or cauldron.

Width at foot 33.3 mm, 19.2 mm at leg. Height 31.5 mm, weight 62.6 g
