Details

Humble ink bottles form a vital part of the chain of events that have allowed us to gain a rich and intimate knowledge of the people from the past through written words. 

Production

This replica pot was hand-made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact.  It has been fired to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago.  This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is common with the original Roman Pottery and giving each piece its unique character.

Materials  

Terracotta

Dimensions

Approx. 120 mm tall, 80 mm width

 Health and Safety

This is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that would have been used during the Medieval era.  As such, the pot is unglazed as the original would have been with a porous surface.  This means it will absorb some of the ink during use.
