This replica Stonehenge Cup is based on a find from the Wilsford G8 Bronze Age barrow, in the greater Stonehenge landscape. One of the 300 or more burial barrows that have been discovered within a 2 mile radius around Stonehenge, this barrow was that of a woman who has been nicknamed the Queen of Stonehenge.  This was a high status burial, as evidenced by the jewellery and fascinating grave goods including this little vessel, which gets its name from its apparent resemblance to the monument of Stonehenge. 

Often referred to as an incense cup, this little object creates a beautiful sun burst of light when a flame is lit within it you can see this in the last of our images.

Smoke fired Terracotta


Diameter at rim 112 mm  x  Height 60 mm

This cup has been made in a small batch and you may not receive this exact cup photographed but any variations will be minimal. 


It has been fired to emulate the ancient firing conditions. The original pot would have been fired in an open wood fire, in close contact with the fuel, a process that leaves its mark on the clay as variations in the surface colour. However the very low temperatures achieved in open firings, also results in pots that are relatively weak, so this pot has been fired to a somewhat higher temperature to strengthen it, in a special firing process that allows me to achieve an authentic appearance to the pot.


As with all my Museum Quality Replicas this pot has been made, as the original would have been,  entirely by hand from natural clay and using replicas of the types of tool that the Bronze-Age makers would have used.  In keeping with the original pot, the decoration has been applied using hand twisted cord made from natural bark fibres, in this case Lime Bark Bast. As each pot varies you many not receive the exact cup in the image, but you can be sure that due to the variations caused by the firing process your pot will be a one of a kind.
