Gnathian Polychrome Oinochoe with High Handle - PF.5804 - For Sale

Gnathian Polychrome Oinochoe with High Handle - PF.5804
Price: $9600.00
The central motif of this charming vessel shows two white swans or other such aquatic birds. Orange and brown paint highlights their individual feathers and their beaks, both holding wreaths. An elegantly painted band of various foliage, including grape bunches, frames this scene. This oinochoe may originally have contained fine wine, or some other luxury product like oil or perfume. Its soaring handle and elongated spout give this oinochoe a sculptural elegance typical of ancient Greek pottery. When we hold it today and delight in the beauty of its form and intricate patterns, we share our pleasure with people who lived long ago during the flower of the Classical age. - (PF.5804)
