Within Roman society, the hearth fire held great importance within the household and the Empire as a whole. The virgin Goddess Vesta was held in high regard as the keeper of the eternal hearth fire and the guardian of the Roman people. As well as being a goddess of the home, the family and bakers. (She was a busy lady)

The Temple of Vesta in Rome, as with most temples to Vesta, is recognisable for its circular structure, which includes an area that was not open to the public, where the eternal hearth fire burned. This fire was tended to by the Vestal Virgins and only extinguished once a year on March 1st, originally the Roman New Year. If the fire were to go out at any other time, it would be considered an omen of disaster for Rome. 

The Roman festival of Vestalia was celebrated from June 7th to 15th. 

Also known as Hestia in Greek Mythology.

As with all our Museum Quality Replicas, we have made this, as the original would have been, entirely by hand from natural clay and using replicas of the types of tools that the ancient makers would have used. As each one varies, you may not receive the same finish in the image, but you can be sure that it will be one of a kind due to the variations caused by the firing process. 


All items are sent using a second-class postal service; if you wish to have an item sent first-class, please contact us for a quote. Many Thanks
