The road to the next market is a long and tiring one, but you still tend to travel in comfort. You travel in one of the nicest wagons and you hire some of the best guards--traveling with expensive wares can be dangerous, after all!--so in the evening you feel safe to enjoy a tankard or two of your own beer.
The wine goes well inside your Trader Mug, both for practical reasons and for its unique aesthetic. As a successful trader, you must be sure to keep up appearances!
Epic Armoury’s Dark Trader Mug is a drinking vessel designed to hold half a liter of your favourite drink. This mug is made of genuine horn and comes from the Indian water buffalo, chosen specifically for its dark colouring. The outside is polished to perfection and is smooth to the touch, while the inside of the mug is polished and treated for food consumption.
Enjoy cool and room temperature liquids in your drinking mug while remaining in character, hiding away the unsightly plastic bottles. Our drinking mugs are a great addition to markets and camps. With the proper care, you can expect your Trader Mug to last many long years.
- Ancient Greeks and Romans were known to use horns for drinking vessels
- The ancient Greek term for a drinking horn was simply keras, which means ‘horn’
- The earliest mugs were made out of wood, and later developed into pottery
Your horn is made from genuine Indian water buffalo horn, a product made from real kerotin. It was handcrafted, and therefore each horn is unique in its own special way thanks to the artist and variations in each individual horn. This horn has been created especially for food use, but we do advise that you take proper care of it in order to keep the horn in good condition for continued use.
In order to best care for your genuine horn product, please avoid washing it in the dishwasher or with strong solvents, detergents, and/or chemicals. Use mild soap and lukewarm water, and towel dry immediately after washing. Do not microwave your horn or use it for hot liquids, as this can melt the inner coating and extreme temperature swings can cause the horn to crack. Avoid rubbing your horn against sharp objects, as its surface can scratch. Keep your horn out of extreme heat or cold.
