Roman Bronze Skillet Handle circa 1st Century AD. A wonderful piece of Roman History. This is a skillet handle. Very much like a saucepan in shape, the vessel would have been used during the Roman period to contain liquids for sacrificial or domestic purposes. The hole at the end of the handle would have been used to suspend the skillet to the wall of the dwelling. Like Samian ware, this would have been for a high class person as the handle is not only highly decorated, it also shows a makers mark in the centre of the handle which reads "ANSI . DIORDORI". An unusual and interesting item. 105mm Provenance: Ex. Private Collection of Michael Green, Tiverton region, collection formed between 1970's - 2012.
