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 upper frieze shows four bigae (two-horse chariots) racing. Above each chariot, the drivers are named:

EVTYCE (Eutychus - 'The Lucky One’)
OLYMPE (Olympus)
PYRAME (Pyramus)

The lower frieze shows two pairs of gladiators:

PRVDES ('The Careful One')
HORIES ('Rising Sun')

No absolutely complete vessel is known. Our reproduction is reconstructed from fragments in Vindonissa Museum, together with fragments from Hartlip in Kent (now in Maidstone Museum) and Southwark (now in the British Museum).
