Beautiful blackware oenochoe, knurled ovoidal body, high swung handle attached to the trefoil mouth. Nice black gloss.
Blackware vases are imported from Greece since the 5th century B.C. and reproduced in Italy from the middle of the 4th century B.C. The workshops can be found in Campania, Etruria and Sicily. The productions are therefore variants of paste or varnish as clays and cooking methods used differ. They make up the service of the banquet: kylix, oenochoe, guttos and askoi and all kinds of bowls, and have known a great success up from the 4th century B.C. until the end of their production in the first century B.C.
Comes with a TL test and an export passport.
