Flagon 82A1741 was found on the Orlop Deck of the Mary Rose on 31st May 1982.
It has a bulbous body and a domed lid with a twin-ball thumbpiece attached to a solid strap handle. It is 203mm tall with a maximum body diameter of 148mm, a capacity of 1.8 litres (half gallon or ‘pottle’) and weighs 2.27kg, and is made of pewter with a mix of 67.9% tin/30.8% lead. It was probably made in Lille, northern France or in the Netherlands.
This flagon stands out among our collection because of the many engraved marks on its surface, from personal marks to the image of a monk.
This 3D model was made in collaboration between the Mary Rose Trust and the University of Portsmouth. A higher resolution version will be made available in the future.
