The chemical composition of the vessel with an enameled zoomorphic spout from Łęg Piekarski was analyzed in the Bio- and Archaeometry Laboratory of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Sciences. An Artax X-ray spectrometer was used. The body, both handle mounts, and enamel were analyzed (Fig. 1). As a result, raw material was identified. The vessel was made of tin bronze, and the zoomorphic mount was made of leaded tin bronze (Table 1). The red enamel was made of high-leaded sodium glass (Table 2).
