Etruscan Bucchero Pottery Cup - Very Modern Form

Lot 0256 Details

Description
Central Italy, Etruria, ca. 600 to 400 CE. This is a gorgeously simple example of Bucchero ware, a style of firing clay pots that was unique to the Etruscans, who lived in modern day Umbria, Tuscany, and Lazio. The coloration ranges from grey to a dark earthy brown depending on lighting and angle. It has a simple handle on one side and reminds me of a tea cup! Size: 4.6" W x 1.8" H (11.7 cm x 4.6 cm)

Provenance: Ex - Private Dana Simons collection, Houston, Texas via family descent

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.
