Attic or Atticizing Bell-Krater, ca. 420 BC

Large black-glazed bell-krater with an inset edge at the join to the flaring rim and round-sectioned handles turning upwards. The spreading ring foot almost flat on top with slightly convex outer face. The handle-panels reserved as well as the outer face and the bottom of the foot. Black Attic bell-kraters are quite rare. For a vase close in shape and size cf. item no. 60 in: B.A. Sparkes, L. Talcott. The Athenian Agora. Black and Plain Pottery. Princeton 1970. The present vase does not show the typical color of the Athenian clay and could thus be an Atticizing krater from Magna Graecia. Ceramic. Attic or Atticizing South Italian, ca. 420 BC. H. 25.3 cm (10 in), D. 26.5 cm (10.4 in). Unbroken vase. Silvery black glaze with pitting and scratches in places. Inside reserved except for a glazed inside rim. Soil deposits. German private collection (data will be provided to the buyer)
