Cooper's Apprentice Piece Flask3D Model

Twelve wooden staves were used to make the flask and six brass rings around the outside were used to hold the staves together. Dated. C1880. Physical object held at the Timespan Museum. Part of the Helmsdale Fishing Village reconstruction.
A collaborative project between Open Virtual Worlds, a research team within the School of Computer Science, University of St Andrews and Timespan Museum. 3D digitisation was done by Catherine Cassidy and Iain Oliver with archaeological assistance provided by Jacquie Aitken.
Digitisation funded by the EU Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020 through the “Connected Culture and Natural Heritage in a Northern Environment” (CINE) project.
