Greek Apulian Pottery Plate w/ Lady of Fashion
Item Details
Description
Magna Graecia, southern Italy, Apulia, ca. 340 to 325 BCE. A stunning red-figure plate on a raised foot featuring a "Lady of Fashion" wearing a saccos - head scarf - with pearl strands and hair pins, a drop earring, and a pearl necklace. Facing left, the elegant female displays a straight nose, a petite eye beneath a thick brow, pursed lips, and a spiraling tendril of hair that falls down the side of her face. Her profile head is encircled by a red band bordered by a circle of white laurel leaves, with tongues around the edge of the rim. In addition to the skillfully rendered red-figure painting, the artist added lovely white fugitive painted details. What's more, the black decoration has gained nice iridescence, particularly on the underside. In the field before her profiled visage are abstract vegetal and geometric designs. Adding a human element to the creation of this piece is the dark orb in the center, which formed because another plate must have been placed on top of this one during the firing process. Size: 5.8" Diameter x 1.3" H (14.7 cm x 3.3 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.
