Details
This type of drinking cup, depicting flying phalli, was popular in Roman Britain during the third and fourth centuries. This design is based a rather magnificent cup that was excavated in Cambridgeshire and is now on display int the British Museum. 

Made primarily in the Nene Valley around the present day Peterborough, the dark slip glaze finish made use of materials from the Romano British Iron industries in the area.  These pots were distributed widely throughout the province of Britannia and are found extensively on Hadrian's Wall. 

Materials

Earthenware clay

Dimensions

Approx 125mm tall

Production

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 Roman makers would have used.
