Greek Attic Black Figure Stemmed Kylix - Figures

Lot 0005A Details

Description
Greece, Athens, ca. 450 BCE. This is an amazing Attic kylix (drinking cup) with finely shaped squared-off handles, a wide, evenly sloping bowl, and a delicate round foot joined to the body by a narrow leg. The decoration is classic black figure, painted using shapes reminiscent of silhouettes or shadows. The exterior shows delicate contours that were incised into the paint before it was fired to give further shape to the figures painted around it. The exterior scene features a variety of human figures, some seemingly engaged in conversation; the interior has a figure who looks like a warrior holding a shield and spear. Mythological scenes, especially drawn from the Trojan War or the legends of Heracles, were common subjects for the artists creating black figure pottery. Size: 9.3" L x 7" W x 2.25" H (23.6 cm x 17.8 cm x 5.7 cm).

Provenance: Ex-private German collection, acquired in 1994.

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.
