Roman plates such as these would have been used to serve all manner of Roman delicacy, and although not considered high status at the time, they would have been used in households, both rich and poor, across Roman Britain.
Terracotta clay, barbotine slip finish.
235 mm diameter
This replica Roman pot has been hand-made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact. It has been fired to a temperature between 800 & 1000 Centigrade to emulate the same techniques the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in surface colour and texture variations, as is common with the original Roman pottery and gives each piece its unique character.
Health and Safety
As with all of our museum-quality replicas, this piece has been fired to achieve an authentic finish. Like the original, it is unglazed and has no modern finishes applied. As a result, this pot does not meet modern health and safety standards, and although decorative, we recommend that you refrain from using this pot should not be used for its original purpose.
