Details

From archaeological evidence, it appears that Roman potters often did not make lids to fit individual cooking pots.  Instead, they made lids that would fit a variety of cooking pots.  So if you dropped the lid of your favourite cooking pot, there was no need to replace the whole thing. You would simply get a replacement lid. 

We have made this lid to fit most of our Roman cooking pots, but please double-check the dimensions before ordering.  Thank you. 

 Materials

Terracotta clay, fired under reduction conditions

Dimensions

Approx. 35 mm tall, 120 mm diameter

Production

We have hand-made this replica Roman pot in our studio in beautiful Northumberland and based on an original artefact. It has been to a temperature of between 800 & 1000 Centigrade, using the same techniques that the original potters employed. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, emulating original Roman Pottery and giving each pot its unique character.

 Health & Safety

This is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that Roman potters would have used during the Roman era. This is an unglazed pot with a porous surface, and therefore, it will absorb the flavours of the food being stored or served, which adds to the flavour of future dishes. However, it also means that this pot does not meet modern Health and Safety standards, so we do not advise that it be used for storing or serving food. When the Romans used these vessels, they applied sufficient heat to the cooking pot and its contents to kill all bacteria. Heating to over 70°C for at least 10 minutes would have killed most disease-causing bacteria, and temperatures of 100°C would do even more.

Hello Graham and Sarah, I wanted to message because I ordered your holy grail pot for my dad's birthday and he is over the moon with it.
