Greek Apulian Red Figure Skyphos w/ Lady of Fashion

Lot 0061
**Originally Listed At $500**

Greece, South Italic Colonies, Apulia, ca. 340 to 325 BCE. A wheel-thrown pottery skyphos with a lightly-protruding circular foot, a gradually-expanding body, a flared lip, and a pair of applied parabolic handles. Each side of the vessel exhibits a red-figure depiction of a 'lady of fashion,' each left-facing head with elegant eyes, a slender nose, a kekryphalos hairstyle, and curly bangs accentuated with fugitive white pigment, all beneath a register of petite cresting waves and separated with a pair of stylized palmettes. Layers of lustrous black glaze envelop the entire vessel save for the area beneath the foot, and faint traces of silvery iridescence nicely complement the dark composition. Size: 5.4" W x 3.75" H (13.7 cm x 9.5 cm).

Provenance: private Owen collection, Sussex County, New Jersey, USA, acquired in the 1990s from a US-based dealer
