Highgate Wood form group: Beakers
Poppy beakers with panels of barbotine-dot decoration are one of the most widely recognized Highgate produts.
- 9: Carinated beakers. A rare type, harking back to imported Gallo-Belgic prototypes.
- 11: beakers with a small everted or beaded rim. These can be decorated with panels of barbotine dots 11.1, or plain 11.2, and there is one examlple of a folded beaker 11.3. Unassignable rims are classed as type 11R.
- 12: The classic Highgate poppy-beaker is the commonest type of beaker produced on the site. The sub-divisions within the type are largely based on the angle of the rim, and its size relative to the body of the vessel (types 12.1-12.3). A few examples, probably late in the series, are undecorated 12.4. Unassigned rims are classed as type 12R.
