This replica Collared Urn is based on what is quite rightly considered to be one of the finest vessels in the Wiltshire Museum, Devizes.

It is decorated with very carefully impressed bands of whip-cord (sometimes called “maggot marks”) chevrons and cross-hatching, each bordered by deep double lines probably applied with an antler point. Two cord impressed lines around the inner rim complete the collar. It was found with a primary inhumation (at feet) in Bowl Barrow Wilsford G7, part of the Normanton Down Group, in the Stonehenge Landscape, close to Amesbury. It was  excavated by William Cunnington in 1808.

The origional of this item is normally on display in Wiltshire Museum.


Smoke fired Terracotta


Approx. 225mm tall 180mm diameter


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
and is based on good archaeological evidence. In keeping with the
original pot, the decoration has been applied using lime bast cord and
whip-cord, bone and antler points. It has been wood fired to emulate the
ancient firing conditions.  The exterior has been finished with beeswax
to give a slight sheen. This is a Museum Quality Replica and is not
intended for use for food or drink, if you require replica pots for
actual use with food or beverages, please ask before purchasing.


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.
