A very elegant ancient kantharos of Boeotian origin which dates to circa 450 BC. This clay Greek kantharos sits on low ring foot, its underside reserved. This pottery has a steep wall construction, offset to the foot. Both handles drawn up above the rim and stretch wide. Measures 6.5 inches in diameter, has a nice matt black glaze finish however, one side slightly worn (as seen in photo) otherwise, in excellent condition.
