Seller: artemisgallery (669) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 381865852386 Daunian Polychrome Pottery Kyathos, Striking Decoration Italy, Apulia / Daunian, ca. 300 BCE. A lovely Daunian polychrome pottery kyathos, or dipper, with a characteristically lengthy, flattened, looped handle attached to a shallow bowl with a subtly flared rim, all decorated in an attractive decorative program of chocolate brown and red stripes and stylized geometrics called listati on a cream ground. Particularly elaborate are the abstract motifs on the handle, tondo, and underside of the base. Daunian society included a blend of native Italians and Greeks who had settled in the area. Though many Daunian vessel forms were strongly influenced by the native Italians of this region, the kyathos was a Greek creation and the generous width of the strap was purely Daunian. A stunning example, replete with a brilliant silhouette and finely delineated decorative program. Size: 6.5" W x 3.875" H (16.5 cm x 9.8 cm) #118008 Condition: Handle repaired and reattached. Chips to rim and underside of base. Expected surface wear with nicks, abrasions, and pigment loss as shown. Provenance: Ex-Private LA County collection All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
