Its more of a Victorian shape and finish of bottle than it is medieval I believe (someone will correct me if it would pass muster earlier) but definately much more fun than glass. Don't a couple of the German wines and some of the Dutch gins come in similar stoneware bottles?

Is it ok you say its fine because we use them all the time why ? please tell serioulsey I would be very interested in seeing your evidence for this


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

I'd put it as wrong for most if not all of the medieval in Britain - I dont think pottery was used for bottles - and beer was more likely to be stored in the barrel and drawn off as required - a medieval household would have got through a fair amount and it wouldn't have been stored in little bottles. Similarly with wine.

By the late 16th/early 17th C you start to find glass 'onion' bottles in the archaeological record.

If you want to know about pottery in Britain then I heartily recommend the book below, you can probably get it out of your Uni library:

Medieval pottery in Britain, AD 900-1600 / Michael R. McCarthy and Catherine M. Brooks.

p.s. Just because it's in common usage within your group doesn't always make it right. It's an easy mistake to make if you don't know better and it's not confined to re-enactment, we were given an example of this during a lecture about the first professional archaeologists - if enough people claim it's right then it must be...unfortunately not!

Karen comes up with the images again! You're an absolute gem!!

The examples are mainly post medieval though and the bottle shape is totally different to Matilds examples - however I suspect if you took some of these pictures to a good potter you could get some copies made up fairly easily - or go to TORM and see if anyone is flogging them there.

Here in the U.S., Jeff Brown sells Raeren-style stoneware bottles. Hudson does some related stoneware, too.

just read in another thread that you do the same period as us (one of), and sorry, but that kind of bottle isn't even vaguely right, it's just wrong.

if you do use them in your group, I'd suggest banning them immediately in favour of something that's correct.

Some of us tend to believe that the larger earthware jug 2 1/2 pints (thank you Jim the pot) would be the collective vessel , mazeres (thank you Todd) being the individual ones. Is more fun sharing!!!

My group represents 15th Centuru medieval and we only allow jugs and barrels for liquid containers.
I suppose you should be asking what context the vessels? In a dwelling or permanent meeting place why would they need individual portion storage? If talking about transporting beer small bottles would be totally impractical.
