Greece, Athens, Attic Period, ca. 5th century BCE. A kylix, a drinking cup, with a deep bowl, a round foot, and wide, squared-off, raised handles. In tondo is a miniature, lightly stamped motif of six leaves/ferns around a daisy-like flower. The body is glazed black and has been fired to a high shine everywhere except for the ring around the top of the foot and the underside of the foot - the glossy black color probably meant to be an imitation of bronze vessels.
