This is an original work of art by Chischilly Pottery, designed after a unique drinking vessel known as the Rhyton. 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.

This Dragon Rhyton holds a 18oz of your favorite beverage and is 7 1/2 inches long from top of cup to the nose (Bottom).
The opening is about 3 inches wide, from the top of the head to the handle stands about 6 inches tall when sitting up.

This is a great cup for parties, costumed events 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 originaly hand thrown on the potters wheel and then painstakingly carved by hand as well. Then they are cast and reproduced in studio by Jane and Jason Chischilly (Mother - Son).

Height: 7 1/2 inches (Top of cup to nose/bottom)
Height: 6 inches (Sitting Up on handle)
Width: 3 inches
Capacity: 18 fluid oz
