Details
These lovely little two handled Greek wine cups are based on one from the Shefton Collection at the Great North Museum.  They would have been  an everyday object that would have been used to drink and enjoy a little wine in style.  

Materials

Terracotta and red slip finish

Dimensions

Approx. 100 mm high, 110 mm diameter , Width including handles 170 mm

Production

This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact.  It has been fired to a temperature of over 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. 

Health and Safety

As with all of our Museum quality replicas, this piece has been fired to achieve an authentic finish. Like the original it is unglazed and has no modern finishes applied. As a result this pot does not meet modern health and safety standards and, although decorative, I would not recommend that this pot be used for its original purpose.
