Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Copper-alloy repair patch or folded 'paperclip' type rivet from a Medieval to Post Medieval vessel. It is folded from a lozenge shaped copper alloy sheet and was used to repair small splits in copper alloy vessels. The patch has an even dark green patina. Egan gives a broad date range for this type of pot mend, dating from the Early Medieval to Post Medieval periods ( Material Culture in London in an Age of Transition, page 101) but also suggests a central usage period from about the late 15th to the mid to late 16th Centuries. See NMS-44E086 for a parallel.
