    About

    A bone china mug inspired by ancient Greek pots.

    This mug has been created exclusively for the British Museum, based on original ancient Greek pottery in the Museum's collection.

    The design is taken from an Athenian hydria (a type of jug used for carrying water) dated to around 520BC and decorated in the black-figure technique. The Greek god of wine, Dionysos, is holding a vine branch, alongside Satyrs and Maenads. The writing is the potter's signature: 'Pamphaios made me'.

    The mug is made in England from fine bone china and is microwave safe and dishwasher proof.
