An incomplete and decorated lead object of medieval or post-medieval date. No original sides remain, and it is now in an irregular heart shape bearing part of an inscised design.

A post-medieval, sheet copper-alloy, riveted pot mend. Description: The pot mend consists of a staple rivet connecting two sheets of copper-alloy that sandwich a layer of iron. The iron layer will be part of the body of the original vessel that was mended. The rivet is made from a lozenge-shaped sheet of copper alloy folded in on itself to create a sub-rectangular plate with two sub-triangular prongs projecting from the reverse. The two prongs pass through slits in the two copper-alloy sheets and are then folded outwards to secure the sheets tightly against the inside and outside of t…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy unused rivet dating from the late Medieval to post-Medieval (AD 1450-1800).
