tripods

replica ancient Greek bronze tripods with owls and horses online and at It's All Greek London opposite the British Museum

Bronze tripods were given as guest gifts and as prizes in athletic contests. They were symbols of status, wealth and prosperity. In Delphi, the priestess of Apollo would sit at her tripod and deliver the prophecies of the god. In Homer, a guest or a host would give a tripod as a gift of gratitude for hospitality given and received.

Our collection of tripods is cast for us in Greece, using the lost wax method. The decoration is intricate and often symbolic, such as the use of the owl and the horse on the handles. They are decorative items in their own right, or can be used to hold candles or tealights, pot pourri or incense.
