Ancient Eating Vessels

As well as being an important part of everyday life, eating also held ceremonial meaning for the ancients, with evidence of the activity and its associated vessels connecting multiple millennia and numerous civilisations. We offer a wide selection of eating vessels, ranging from beautifully painted blue and white Chinese plates to finely potted Greek and Roman terracotta bowls. These seemingly everyday items provide us with an invaluable starting point to uncovering the lived experience of the ancient world.
