Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Pot mend of a steeply sided vessel, crudely cast. Unusual metal type - microscopic examination suggests that it is a heavily leaded copper alloy which may have a tinned surface. Most pot mends are made from straight lead alloys and that this example has been made from a leaded copper alloy suggests that it may be a mend for a copper alloy vessel rather than a ceramic pot. Close dating is not possible but a medieval or post-medieval date is most likely. Dimensions 100m x 44mm x 4-8mm.

Cast copper alloy vessel foot. The foot has a rib on its external surface and tapers to a rounded point. The upper part of the casting is missing. Vessel feet are not uncommon detector finds (Bailey 1997, 36). Although examples which terminate in turned-out bases or paws are the most common type, examples with rounded tips are not unknown. Surviving length 79mm, max width (surviving) 35mm, max surviving thickness 16mm. Fifteenth to seventeenth century probably [i.e. Late Medieval - Early Post-Medieval]. Parallels: Lewis 1978, 36, no.45 (skillet); and Lewis 1978, 32, no.38 (Cauldron)

Crudely cast, slightly waisted, copper alloy vessel leg. Length 41mm, width 28-33mm, thickness 18mm, weight 77.4 grams. Identifying the vessel type that this leg is from is not possible. Presumably it was either a cauldron, skillet, jug or ewer. Close dating is equally difficult as the form of the legs like this did not change from the medieval period until the seventeenth century (Read 1995, 95).

Several cast copper alloy vessel fragments including the basal end of two vessel legs form different vessels but both plano-convex in section and with decorative outer longitudinal ribs; cast copper alloy rim fragments from four different wide and steep sided vessels (probably cauldrons); and a cast copper alloy rim fragment from a wide and steep sided vessel which includes an integrally cast suspension loop, the upper part of which contains a pronounced wear facet.

Complete cast copper alloy vessel leg. Part of the apparently integrally cast body of the vessel remains attached to the leg. Length 78mm, width 16-17 mm, weight 115.2 grams. Medieval to post-medieval. The surface of the leg is preferentially blackened in comparison to the inside of the vessel body; this "sooting" is a common phenomena and is due to oxidisation of the outer surface of the vessel through exposure to the cooking fire.

Cast copper alloy rim fragment from a wide and steep sided vessel (probably a cauldron). Surviving vessel depth 37mm, thickness 3.5-4.5mm, weight 42.1 grams. Medieval or post-medieval in date. Medieval cast copper alloy vessels are discussed by Egan (1998, 161-169); several post-medieval examples are noted by Margeson (1993, 90-94).

Cast copper alloy vessel leg, sub-triangular in section, which tapers towards its angled foot. The foot is separated from the main part of the leg by a transverse ridge in the angle. The weight of the vessel leg suggests that the copper alloy was leaded. Possibly the leg of a tripod ewer. Close dating is difficult because the form of the vessel legs remained similar from the late medieval period until the seventeenth century (Read 1995, 95); however, the distinctive transverse ridge in the angle of the foot and leg of this example is closely paralleled by a vessel leg recovered from a …

Cast copper alloy vessel, leg, sub-trapezoidal in section. The outer edge and sides are decorated with longitudinal grooves. The leg tapers towards its rounded base. The weight of the vessel leg suggests that the copper alloy was leaded. Probably the leg of either a cauldron, skillet, jug or ewer. Close dating is not possible because the form of vessel legs remained similar from the late medieval period until the seventeenth century (Read 1995, 95). Length 46.5mm, maximum width 31.5mm, maximum thickness 20mm. Thirteenth to seventeenth century.

Wall fragment of a cast copper alloy vessel with horizontal ridge. Unfortunately, the fragment is not large enough to determine the original form of the vessel with certainty but it is possibly from a tripod cauldron or skillet. Dimensions 64mm x 51mm, thickness 2.5mm, weight 34.1 grams. Medieval or Post-medieval in date.

Copper alloy vessel escutcheon and handle, probably of Roman period date. The handle comprises a looped escutcheon attached to the lower part of a handle. The rear or inside of the escutcheon has a rectangular plate (44.54 x 46.6mm) with a trapezoidal knop at the base (14.2mm long and 13.92mm wide). There are three perforations (of 3mm diameter) at the base of the escutcheon, two at the corners and one irregularly placed within the knop. The interior of the escutcheon has a shield-shaped or sub-triangular silvered mark (29.3mm high and 30.5mm wide), presumably as a result of a lost dec…

Cast copper alloy mount in the form a small figurine of a banqueter of Roman date, probably from the 1st century AD. The figure is eroded with the original surface now missing. The figurine depicts a reclining banqueter resting on the left elbow. The figure appears to be naked above the waist. The lower part of the body and legs are covered with draperies, the folds of which are indicated by cast and recessed lines on the front and rear. The hand is visible against the base of drape. The rear of the figure may have further drapery over the left shoulder. No detail of the face or the re…

Copper alloy cast cauldron or skillet leg fragment, broken at both ends, and probably of late Medieval or Post Medieval date. The leg is of low D-shaped section with a rounded rib on the outside face. The sides converge towards the foot and the leg thickens near the top break. Black deposits over the surface indicate heavy sooting and burning.

Copper alloy zoomorphic mount, probably from a vessel handle or lid and of Early Roman date. The mount depicts a sitting quadruped with its front legs extending out in front of the body, and possibly representing a bear or a dog. The animal is naturalistic in style. The hair is depicted by incised lines over the body, except for the top of the back, where a rectangular panel is decorated with two incised diagonal crosses divided by a single incised line. On the rear of the animal there is an integral flat circular perforated lug covered with iron corrosion, and possibly representing a …
