Type of miniature cup or accessory vessel found in early Bronze Age (Wessex Culture) graves in southern England. Generally less than 15 cm across, grape cups are characterized by having a narrow base, a narrow mouth, and an expanded rather bulbous body covered in small applied balls of clay so that they look like a small bunch of grapes.
