This set of two small, Viking Age cups is based on the find from grave mound 971 in Birka, Sweden. The term "supkopp" translates to "cup with a mouthful of liquor".
The cups are wholly handmade here in Sweden without a potter’s wheel, just as the original was made over 1000 years ago. The circular patterns used is a common design evident on several finds from Birka.
The cups are made from stoneware with a matt glazed inside in order to make them more durable and easier to clean. This allows them to be washed in a dish washer and they can also withstand a microwave oven.
