Celtic Dragon Mug Drinking Horn Beer Mug Sculptural Dragon Cup for Home Decor, Home Bar Accessory, Renaissance Festival Mug, Celtic Weddings
This is an original work of art by Chischilly Pottery, designed after a unique drinking vessel known as the Rhyton. Dragons are known for collecting and/or protecting great hordes of treasure. So I thought a dragon would be fitting to make into a drinking vessel, and the Rhyton design gave me a great opportunity to create something that that would not only be visually stunning but functional as well. This is what I like to call a sculpture quality drinking vessel. For when it is not in use, it displays like a work of art.
This is a great cup for parties, costumed events like Renaissance, Highland Flings, Fairy Festivals, SCA gatherings and feasts or just for enjoying your favorite beverage in style. My cups are guaranteed to keep you cool with or without beverage. ;) All 100% food safe glazes. Can go in the dishwasher or in the freezer for a nice chilled glass.
This is a gloss glaze so it feels smooth in your hands like glass but is stronger. This is due to the fact that it is "Stoneware ceramics". This means it is more durable and can hold the temperature of your beverages far longer than any other natural material. All our cast pieces are originally hand thrown on the potters wheel and then painstakingly sculpted and carved by hand as well. Then they are cast and reproduced in studio by Jane and Jason Chischilly (Mother - Son).

A rhyton (plural rhytons or, following the Greek plural, rhyta) is a container from which fluids were intended to be drunk, or else poured in some ceremony such as libation (.libation (Σπονδή spondee in Greek) is a ritual pouring of a drink as an offering to a god or deity). Rhytons were very common in ancient Persia, where they were called takuk (تکوک). The English word rhyton originates in the ancient Greek word ῥυτόν (rhŭtón).After a Greek victory on Persia, much silver, gold, and other luxuries, including numerous rhytons, were brought to Athens. Persian rhytons, which appear in Athens suddenly in great quantities after the war, were immediately imitated by Greek artists.
