Greek Hellenistic Pottery Female Face Applique
Item Details
Description
Ancient Greece, Hellenistic, ca. 2nd century BCE. A finely molded decorative applique for a large krater or vase, of a generally ovoid form and presenting the visage of an attractive female, perhaps a goddess, with delicate facial features and a wavy, centrally-parted, upswept coiffure arranged in an updo topped by a filet hairnet ornament. The goddess' elegant, oval face is sensitively modeled so as to present a naturalistic visage characteristic of the Hellenistic period with a rounded forehead, wide-open lidded eyes, a fine browline that rises gracefully at the center and merges with the bridge of her nose, a rounded chin, a strong jawline, and slightly parted lips. Truly life-like! Size: 1.875" W x 2.25" H (4.8 cm x 5.7 cm); 3" H (7.6 cm) on included custom stand.

Provenance: East Coast collection, New York Gallery, New York City, New York, USA, acquired before 2010

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.
