Highgate Wood form: HW.24 Campanulate pedestal (?) cup

  • Form: A campanulate pedestal cup or bowl. The lip is plain, slightly out-turned, with a rounded section. The convex bulges on the body are separated by horizontal finely moulded cordons and grooves. There are no complete profiles in the Highgate assemblage, but the type probably had a raised footring such as 271, which suggests some relationship with the cup-mouthed Gallo-Belgic pedestal cups of Camulodunum type 76.
  • Fabric: HWBR (principally) and HWC.
  • Phase: Phase 2 and 3 (with several examples from southern kiln dump, where they may be residual from earlier activity).
