An incomplete cast copper alloy pot foot dating to c.1200-1700. The foot is trapezoidal in section, tapering into a slightly rounded rear and with three longitudinal raised ribs running down the front, flaring slightly towards the base. It has an old irregular break at the upper end. The leg widens and spreads outwards at the base forming a trapezoid foot. Crudely made cast copper alloy vessels were widely used from c.1200-1700 for serving and cooking. Butler et al (2009:4) suggest there were four main types of leg used. This is an example of Type A which they suggest was widespread in…

A fragment of a cast copper-alloy vessel, probably a skillet or cauldron, of Medieval to Post-Medieval date, circa 1200-1700. The rim is beaded internally and there are file markings on the internal surface. The shaping of the lower section of the fragment suggests that the vessel may have had an everted rim. The object is pitted, with a blackened surface suggesting sooting. The vessel fragment is 60.91mm in length, 37.67mm in width and 4.36mm in thickness. It weighs 46.91g.
