This Celtic Dragon Mug is an original work of art by Chischilly Pottery. It is designed after a unique drinking vessel from the history of ancient Greece known as the Rhyton. These drinking vessels were often in the form of various real and mythological animals' heads. Originally, they were "Bottom's Up Cups" and were set down on the rim when the cup was empty. I have redesigned them with a tripod so they can be set down after a third of the cup is finished.

This was sculpted and hand carved by Jane Chischilly and then cast and reproduced in studio by the mother/son (Jane/Jason) team that is Chischilly Pottery. All designs are my original art work and no commercial molds are ever used.

A great cup for parties, costumed events Celtic weddings, Renaissance Festivals or just for enjoying your favorite beverage in style, my cups are guaranteed to keep you cool with or without beverage. ;)

Stoneware ceramics is dense and durable and can hold the temperature of your beverages far longer than any other natural material. You can chill your mug in the freezer for a frosty mug of your favorite beverage. Or you may heat it with hot water from tap or kettle for tea, coffee, hot toddies, wassail or any other hot drink. All 100% food safe glazes.

A Little History
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, 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.

Dragons are often held to have major spiritual significance in various religions and cultures around the world. In many Asian cultures dragons were, and in some cultures still are, revered as representative of the primal forces of nature, religion and the universe. They are associated with wisdom—often said to be wiser than humans—and longevity. They are commonly said to possess some form of magic or other supernatural power, and are often associated with wells, rain, and rivers. In some cultures, they are also said to be capable of human speech. In some traditions dragons are said to have taught humans to talk.
