An Etruscan Buchero Ware Kyathos
Bucchero ware was first made circa 675-660 BC in workshops in Caere (modern Cerveteri) in southern Etruria. With its black color, finely wrought surfaces with silvery sheens, and stamped and incised decoration, it holds its own when compared with metalwork. This small vessel would have been used to draw and pour liquids, and is an example of the Etruscans' fondness for this type of ceramic. 6"H x 6-1/2"W.
Provenance: Ex-Sarkisian Estate, Denver, CO acquired in the early 1960s.
