Large, cast and hammered pan with slightly convex base, thin, tapered walls, and flat, very slightly everted rim. Long, flat handle continues at rim level, resembling the shape of a modern "frying pan". At its tip, the handle widens into a rhomboid shape, and tapers to an S curved rod ending in a stylized duck's head. The upper edges of the handle form a raised border; the bird's head is very angular, with plain surfaces. Missing a few chips from the body; corrosion lightly cleaned and surfaces coated with wax.
