Production

This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact.  It has been fired to emulate the authentic Roman firing conditions, to a temperature of between 800°C & 1000°C, as the original potters would have done nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is found with original Roman Pottery and giving each pot it's unique character.

This is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that would have been used during the Roman era.  It  does not meet modern Health and Safety standard and is not intended for use as a food vessel, if you require replica pots for actual use with food of beverages, please ask before purchasing.
