Ancient Italian Vessels - 2 Apulian + 1 Etruscan
Item Details
Description
Classical World, Italy, Etruria, ca. late 7th to 6th century BCE; Greece, Magna Graecia, southern Italy, Apulia, ca. 340 to 325 BCE. A lovely trio of ancient pottery vessels: an Etruscan kyathos, a Greek Apulian pyxis, and a Greek Apulian olpe. First, the blackware kyathos displays a cup-shaped body with a large, flared rim, and an upwards sweeping handle adorned with a maskette at the base and a tiered knob at the top of the arch, all sitting upon a ring-form foot. Also covered in black glaze, the pyxis presents concave walls, a projecting lower rim with incised diagonal striations, a folded upper rim, and a tall foot. Last, the olpe exhibits a bulbous body with an attenuated neck, and a ribbon-form handle, all enveloped in black glaze and embellished by pale orange ray and laurel motifs. Size of largest (kyathos): 5" W x 4.6" H (12.7 cm x 11.7 cm)

Provenance: ex-Nancy and Dr. E.F. Simpson collection, Los Angeles, California, USA, acquired from 1970 to 2000

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

Condition
Repair to handle of kyathos with restoration over break lines. Kyathos has chipping and 2 drill holes to foot, as well as possible repair and restoration to rim. Olpe has repair and restoration to handle. Pyxis is missing lid, but otherwise intact and very good. All have some light surface wear with scratches and abrasions. Otherwise, all are excellent with nice remaining pigments and light earthen deposits.
