Left: Circular cruet with flat base. The body tapers towards the rim where there is a hinged lid. There are double lathe turned bands around the middle of the body and below the rim. The lid is stamped with a double 'v' for vinum, wine and there is a mark of a chalice underneath the lid. Right: Polygonal tapering ovoid-shaped vessel constructed from sheet metal, it has opposing lug handles and a screw top. These two vessels were found together on the Thames foreshore in 1995. Vessels of this type are extremely rare.
