Douglas 1793, 49:A Brass or Mixed Metal Vessel [†], 16 inches in diameter, extremely thin. Found on the brass or mixed metal patera [copper-alloy ?base] which was inverted for a base to [the bowl]. It had two handles, which are now detached from it, owing to the perishable quality of the solder. The metal is much corroded, and in some parts has lost its tenacity, yielding and becoming brittle to the touch. [†] In my possession, from Mr. Jacob. I was favoured with a drawing of this vessel and patera, with some others from Mr. Boys. ‚ÄúThese two utensils, he says, were found in one grave, the larger placed on the bottom of the smaller;‚Äù which he also enumerates with some other relics. [...]Found in 1771; 'Tumulus XV'. According to Douglas (1973, 47 Pl. 12.4) the bowl was in his possession and is therefore not identical with any of the unassociate bowls in the Faussett/Rolfe collections. – B.B.
