This Celtic Dragon Mug is an original work of art by Chischilly Pottery, and was inspired by a unique drinking vessel from the history of ancient Greece known as the Rhyton. The original was designed and hand carved by Jane Chischilly, then cast and reproduced in studio by the mother/son (Jane/Jason) team that is Chischilly Pottery. Originally a "Bottom's Up Cup", the rhyton was meant to be set on the rim when empty... as a socially responsible potter, I have added a tripod (on handle and chin) to allow the cup to be set down after about one third of your drink is finished... for temperance sake.

It is a great cup for parties, costumed events such as Renaissance Festivals or just for enjoying your favorite beverage in style. These make wonderful cups for alternative or Celtic Weddings and I have made several sets ranging from a pair for the happy couple to toast their union, to cups for the entire wedding party! The craftsmanship and design qualities make it suitable for display as home decor when not in use as a totally awesome mug.

This is Stoneware Ceramics which means it is more durable and can hold the temperature of your beverages far longer than any other natural material. You can Chill you mug in the freezer or preheat it with hot water from tap or kettle. This mug is made to be used! It is Foodsafe, and Functional for use in the Microwave and Dishwasher. The Quality and Craftsmanship of Chischilly pottery is guaranteed. My cups are also guaranteed to keep you cool with or without beverage. ;)

A little bit of History:

A rhyton is a container from which fluids were intended to be drunk, or else poured in some ceremony such as libation, 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).

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. From the Mediterranean, the rhyton style of mug spread across Europe and Scandinavia.
