Seller: artancientltd (9,291) 99.7%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201159509694 An ancient Greek Mycenaean stirrup jar, dating to the Late Helladic III period, around 1200 BC. The stirrup jar is perhaps the most classic Mycenaean pottery type, named for its distinctive “stirrup” shape that the handles form around the false neck. There is a charming sense of individualism about this lovely example, decorated with dashed paint strokes that sweep across the ochre slip. Indeed the whole design is wonderfully inventive, and reaches well beyond the necessity of the object. We can see how pottery vessels during this period were miniature artworks, to be lovingly shaped and decorated by the ancient artist. Examples such as this would have been used for storing olive oil, for eating, cooking and even washing. Height: 4 1/8 inches. Condition: Very good, unrestored. Provenance: Ex. Swiss private collection, acquired 1970’s. Authenticity All items are unconditionally guaranteed to be Authentic as described.
