Cast copper alloy skillet foot, rectangular in plan and plano-convex in profile and section. The fragment has parallel sides and is slightly thickened at the foot end, which is damaged and worn. There is a slightly raised central rib on the convex outer face, ending at the worn edge of the foot. The broken upper edge is slightly flared probably from when it was sheared off of the rest of the leg. On the front and back of the foot there are patches of black organic material that have been burnt on when the leg was near the fire.

Butler and Green (2003) illustrate a skillet, manufactured by Clement Tosear of Salisbury with a similar, quite plain leg on page 122, no.122, dating from 1679-1717.
