Copper alloy hanging bowl. Shallow bowl with rounded base, low belly, upright neck and out-turned rim. Handle mount of cast copper alloy in form of animal head (perhaps a cow or ox), with ring passing through. Rim decorated with a single wavy line in low relief, with two similar lines on its edge. The bowl was made by hand from a single piece of bronze and the metal is only 0.1 to 0.2 mm thick. It is so delicate that it had been broken and cracked when it was used in the Iron Age and clumsily repaired using solder. There is a break round the lower part of the body which has been patched. There is a similar patch in the centre of the bottom.
