Mould-blown beakers from our Wood-fired Furnace

We are now making Mould-blown Beakers at our Wood-fired Furnace.
See this page for all of our Wood-fired Furnace vessels.
In particular, see this page for our Circus Beakers and stock levels.

We do not make Chariot Race Beakers to order
- they are only available from stock on the website.

For stock levels of all of our mould-blown beakers, see this page.

The lower frieze depicts four quadrigae (four-horse chariots), all racing. The middle frieze shows the objects adorning the spina, the central barrier of the Circus Maximus in Rome. On the upper frieze are the names:

HIERAX ('The Falcon')
OLYMPAE (Olympus)
ANTILOCE (Autolycus)

This is a reproduction of the complete beaker from Colchester, now in the British Museum. A few smaller fragments of this beaker type are also known, including one found at Fishbourne, and another from Neuss, Germany.
