Description: A short copper-alloy pouring spout, cast in the form of a stylised dog's head, originally with two inset glass eyes, of which one, dark blue in colour, survives. Traces of gilt are present.

The spout is generally similar to the more usual type with a longer neck (e.g. UKDFD 51203), which is usually dated circa 15th century. However, the use of inset dark-blue glass eyes suggests that it might be a little earlier, as very similar eyes are found on religious mounts (e.g. UKDFD 13300) and 'box' buckles (e.g. UKDFD 23088 and UKDFD 40268) of 12th to 13th century date. The presence of gilt is also unusual.

Chafing Dish Handle https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/medieval/bronze-vessel-fragments/chafing-dish-handle-54058.html Sat, 01 Dec 2018 11:25:11 GMT Bronze vessel fragments Chafing Dish Handle  
Description: A T-shaped copper-alloy chafing dish handle. Abrasion marks on the surfaces, probably caused by filing during the fettling process.

Identification Note
Although usually identified as chafing dish handles, it is quite likely that handles of this general type were also used on other vessels.

Zoomorphic Spout https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/medieval/bronze-vessel-fragments/zoomorphic-spout-6373.html Thu, 15 Mar 2007 00:00:00 GMT Bronze vessel fragments Zoomorphic Spout  
Description: A zoomorphic spout in the form of a flying duck. The spout is unusual in that the wings and legs (? feet broken off) of the bird are also present. There is a short tube in the bill, as is found on pouring spouts of similar date (cf. PAS: NMGW-746D03), but the attachment end is not flared in the usual manner to match the profile of the vessel.

Animal-Headed Pouring Spout https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/medieval/bronze-vessel-fragments/animal-headed-pouring-spout-23672.html Thu, 18 Feb 2010 00:00:00 GMT Bronze vessel fragments Animal-Headed Pouring Spout  
Description: A cast copper-alloy pouring spout with a zoomorphic terminal in the form of a dog’s head with a short tube in its mouth.

Some spouts of this type were used on priests’ lavers (washing bowls), but illustrations of late medieval flagons show very similar spouts and it seems likely that they were used on various types of vessel.

Chafing Dish Handle (?) https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/medieval/bronze-vessel-fragments/chafing-dish-handle-4061.html Thu, 17 Aug 2006 00:00:00 GMT Bronze vessel fragments Chafing Dish Handle (?)  
Description: A cast copper-alloy object with an openwork trefoil terminal, possibly the swinging handle of a chafing dish. The hinged end of the handle is incomplete and there are iron stains at the fracture.

Chafing dishes were filled with charcoal and used to keep plates of food warm at the table. As well as serving to lift the dish, the handles swung over the rim to provide a plate support.

Description: A cast copper-alloy object with an openwork trefoil terminal, possibly the swinging handle of a chafing dish. The attachment end of the handle may be incomplete. The object was found in three separate pieces.
