Ancient Greek Terracotta Gnathian Oinochoe
ca.370-360B.C. Magna Graecia, Southern Italy, Eastern Apulia, Gnathia.
An elegant red-figure oinochoe standing atop a small foot with delicately-applied white detailing. A fluted body, a trifurcated applied handle parallel to a conical neck adorned with white vertical striations, terminating at a trefoil pouring spout. A grand portrait of a lady of fashion graces the front of the body, surrounded with tendril-form vines, with a broad palmette on the reverse.
A perfect example of the south Italian’s master craftsmanship.
