Brougham Castle: Wrenthorpe Cup

BroughamCup

On display in the visitor centre at Brougham Castle is the fragmented remains of a cup. A regional import from Yorkshire, the cup is thought likely to have been made at a pottery in the village of Wrenthorpe. The dark glazed drinking vessel is decorated with coloured vertical ribbing and dates to the 16th century.
