Terracotta scuttle


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The scuttle, a single-handled shallow bowl with one side bent inward and upward, is a cooking utensil and was probably used for burning coals. The high side by the handle would protect the hand from the heat of the burning charcoal.
