Seller: artemisgallery (696) 100%, Location: Louisville, CO, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 382508935433 Greek Daunian Polychrome Kyathos Magna Graecia, South Italic, Daunian, ca. 300 BCE. A lovely Daunian polychrome pottery kyathos, or dipper, with a characteristically raised looped handle attached to a shallow bowl with a subtly flared rim and a protruding adornment opposite the handle (perhaps intended to be a zoomorphic or avian head), all embellished with an extensive painted decorative program delineated in black and red hues on a cream ground featuring concentric bands and stylized geometrics called listati. 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: 7.875" W x 3" H (20 cm x 7.6 cm) #124240 Condition: Chips to rim and edges of handle. Some restoration to rim and protruding 'head' opposite handle. Surface wear with pigment losses as shown. Areas of earthen encrustation and mineral deposits. Dish display in photos not included. Provenance: private Swiss 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.
