Unidentified decorated object. The object has a rounded triangular head which is decorated, possibly depicting a skull. The back of this portion has two small circular depressions which could have been used in the mountint of the object. Below this, the object projects downwards from the bottom of the triangle and then forward at 90 degrees. The section projecting forward seems to have been snapped, but the patina suggests this is not a new break. The object is symmetrical, decorated on either side of the forward projection with a series of concentric circles.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy pot leg resembling Butler, Green and Payne type 4a, probably from a cooking vessel of medieval or early post-medieval dat (1250-1600). The leg is rougly trilobed, the central raised strip projecting 1mm above the main shaft. There may have been a more defined foot but corrosion has reduced the relief elements significantly. When placed flat on its foot, the leg projects at a roughly 60 degree angle. The main shaft is heavily encrusted with verdigris and other various corrosion products, the variability of which possibly indicating a large amount of lead in the material.

County: Knowsley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast copper alloy leg, possibly from medieval or post-medieval cooking pot or cauldron. The leg has two moulded furrows running vertically down the front face. The reverse of the object is flat, and where the object may have joined on to the main vessel there is a third face which is concave to fit the face of the vessel. Cast coppor alloy vessels became popular from c. AD1100, and gradually passed out of use between 1700 and 1850, superseded by cast-iron pots and by saucepans designed for use on kitchen ranges.
