Cast copper alloy cauldron leg, sub-triangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The attachment to the curved vessel body still remains, and the leg then tapers evenly to a transverse collar and then to the foot which has worn to a rounded end. The outer face of the leg has five vertical ribs, varying in width from 7 mm at the edge, to 11 mm in the centre, which terminate at the transverse collar which divides the leg from the foot. The foot might have originally also been ridged, but it is now so worn it has lost its claw-like terminal. The back of the leg is flat and has been deli…
