Simple but elegant, this beautiful replica dish has been crafted in the same style as Roman potters would have created the original Roman Samian ware dishes around 2000 years ago. The process provides the finished replica with an authentic look and feel.
A form of the iconic Samian Ware, the original vessels would have been mass-produced in Gaul before being sent out to all the corners of the Roman Empire, where Roman civilians and soldiers would have used them to serve food.
Made in the style of form 18/31
Listing is for one dish.
Terracotta and red slip finish
Approx. 70mm high, 200mm diameter
As with all my Museum Quality Replicas, we have made this pot, as the original would have been, entirely by hand from natural clay and using replicas of the types of tool that the ancient makers would have used. As each pot varies, you may not receive the same cup in the image, but you can be sure that your pot will be one of a kind due to the variations caused by the firing process.
Health & Safety
This pot is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that ancient potters would have used during this era. As this is an unglazed pot with a porous surface, it will absorb some of the flavours during the cooking process or when used as food storage, which does add to the taste of future dishes. However, it does also mean that this pot does not meet modern Health and Safety standards, and therefore, we do not advise that you use it for cooking or storing foodstuffs. When ancient cooks used these pots, they relied on applying sufficient heat to the pot and contents to ensure that the heat killed 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.
