CIRCA 400 B.C.

Beautiful and elegant pottery kantharos from the Messapian Greek tribes of Southern Italy. Has an ivy scroll around the neck of the vessel and lovely hook design across the body. Rays decorate the outer high arching handles. Intact said for a small hairline where one handle connects to rim (as seen in photo). Measures 6.5 inches in height.

Provenance: Ex. Gebhard and Johannes Hager. Exhibited at the Stadtmuseum Ottweiler.
