Wikinger Becher Haithabu groß aus Ton, 300 ml
This Viking mug is modelled on original finds made in Haithabu, dated from the 9th and 10th centuries. Mugs of this type were very common in the coastal area to the east.
Haithabu was a settlement of Danish and Swedish Vikings; it was an important hub for trade between Scandinavia and the neighbouring areas in the Baltic States. Together with the ?Danewerk?, the place is one of the most important archaeological sites in Germany and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2018.
This vessel is made in Germany in a very complex and lengthy processes by hand, in contrast to many of the imported or machine-made products on the market.
It was crafted by hand on the potter's wheel according to historical templates, because only in this way can a replica achieve the incomparable vitality of the original templates. The quality, attention to detail, traditional manufacturing methods, and the joy of the faithful replica are real and convincing.
For hygienic reasons, the mug is glazed on the inside and therefore food-safe. The tone is reddish brown.
