Details

Although Barbotine ware from the Nene Valley is a relatively common find within Roman sites around Britain, it is VERY rare for the decoration on the Barotine ware to depict ducks. It makes this charming little cup a fascinating find indeed.

The original of this delightful little cup was beautifully crafted in the 3rd century in the Lower Nene Valley, south-east England, and sherds of the cup were discovered at Segedunum Roman fort at modern-day Wallsend, North Tyneside.

From the few sherds discovered, we could approximate the size and shape of this gorgeous piece and create it again in its full glory.

It was probably used as a drinking cup. Interestingly, this cup is considerably smaller than typical Babotine cups that depict hunting scenes, which leads us to wonder if perhaps this cup was intended for a child.

Made primarily in the Nene Valley around present-day Peterborough, the dark slip glaze finish used materials from the Romano British Iron industries in the area. These pots were distributed widely throughout the province of Britannia and are found extensively on Hadrian's Wall.

Production

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 tools that the Roman makers would have used.
