Corinthian Polychrome Skyphos w/ Stag, Lion, Bird
Item Details
Description
Ancient Greece, Corinth, ca. 6th to 5th century BCE. A lovely wheel-thrown pottery drinking vessel called a skyphos presenting with a discoid foot, an inverted bell-shaped body with a thin rim, and a pair of parabolic handles attached to the exterior rim. Incised across the exterior surfaces is a scene depicting a stag and lion confronting one another, the body of the stag bearing remains of applied black and red pigment, and behind the stag is a standing raptorial bird, perhaps an eagle given the shape of the beak. The zoomorphic scene is enclosed within registers of vertical zigzags above and peaked frets below, and the inside of the basin is covered in dark pigment. Size (w/ handles): 9" L x 6.6" W x 4.25" H (22.9 cm x 16.8 cm x 10.8 cm)

Provenance: private Wabasha, Minnesota, USA collection; 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.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
