Viking Leather Thumb Beaker


Product Description

Modelled on Viking drinking beakers found at the archaeological dig at Coppergate, York.

Our full grain leather Viking Thumb Beakers are a simple, yet practical design. Comfortable in use, the thumb strap allows the beaker to nestle in the palm of the hand.

Viking Thumb Beakers are available with a stitched or pinned detail around the base as seen above. Please make your selection during the ordering process.

All our products are handmade from natural materials which can never be consistent in colour. Whilst every endeavour is made to control colour consistency, each item is offered as an individual piece. However, it will always be the actual colour ordered.

If you would prefer a personalised Thumb Beaker, please do use the “Add Personalisation” option above.  More information regarding personalisation can be found here.

Historically, leather beakers were lined with either boiled Resin of the birch tree, Brewer’s Pitch, or Beeswax. Our full grain leather beakers are lined with an epoxy resin to echo the historic use of resin whilst having the visual appearance of Brewer’s pitch. The resin we use is fully certified for use in both the food and alcohol industries.

Available in one size only with capacity approximately half a pint.

Height approximately 11cm.
