Campanian Black-Glazed Guttus - PF.5389 - For Sale

Campanian Black-Glazed Guttus - PF.5389
Price: $2500.00
The typical bulbous shape of the guttus is rather elongated in this particular vessel; though it still has a long spout and short handle characteristic of its type. Horizontal striations around the middle add texture to the smooth black surface. Most likely a vessel for re-filling oil lamps, the guttus is one of the unusual creations of the Greek potters of Southern Italy. Their excellent skills are evident in this fine vessel, which was once a useful household item and today is an interesting artifact. - (PF.5389)
