Ancient Greece, Late Attic, ca. 370 to 350 BCE. A traditional black glazed pottery skyphos with an owl on one side depicted in red-figure above a red ground line with a palmette beside each looped handle. This one is somewhat unusual in that an owl is only painted on one side of the vessel with gorgeous wide eyes with added white pigment. Quite an impressive example with thin walls and very fine painting technique. Size: 6.75" W x 3.25" H (17.1 cm x 8.3 cm)

Provenance: Ex - Prominent LA County collector who acquired these prior to 2000
