Details
During the 2nd to 4th centuries  these functional mugs were being produced along the middle of the Severn valley, and being distributed  across western Britain. 

It is unclear why the rim of this particular design is so extreme in its flaring,  but the large surface area would certainly allow your soup to cool quickly, or for you to serve a dumpling stew in it.  What is clear is that these very utilitarian items would have been widely used during meal times  by your average Roman citizen or soldier .

 Materials

Terracotta clay

Dimensions

Approx. 135 mm tall, 160 mm diameter at rim

Production

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 of between 8000 & 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is common with the original Roman Pottery and giving each piece it's unique character.
