Rustic Horn Drinking Cup

Rustic Horn Drinking Cup

$ 40.00

This hand made rough-hewn drinking mug is 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 by 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 have only been given a light sanding and polish to leave a rustic uneven surface, which suits their traditional character.

No two pieces will ever be the same and the colors you receive will vary from those pictured.
