Product Description

These handmade drinking cups are made from real cowhorn using the traditional method first employed in the medieval period.
Slicing through a cow horn, then heating the resulting tube to straighten the sides and shape the mouth using a metal former, creates these Oxhorn beakers.  A horn base is then cut from a flat horn plate and attached to form a watertight base. 

These cups are available in four different sizes, with either a rough finish that has only been given a light sanding and polish to leave a rustic uneven surface, which suits their traditional character, or a polished finish that has been double polished with lustre and vonax on our spinning mops.
These cups were used in both epic series, Game of Thrones and Vikings, especially in feasting scenes. 

They can be used not only as a drinking vessel, but for the non-drinkers why not use them as a quirky pen cup or desk tidy.
