Seller: artancientltd (9,479) 99.4%, Location: Huntingdon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 201307093195 An ancient Apulian Gnathian ware trefoil pottery oinochoe (wine jug), dating to the fourth century BC. A delicate, well potted piece, with an ornate bulbous ribbed body, ring base with trefoil lip and strap handle, the shoulder decorated with a white ring below a red-brown garland. This is a beautiful, contained piece of Gnathian pottery from a prominent private collection. Used for the pouring of water and wine, the oinochoe was omnipresent in the households of the ancient Greek world. With its beautiful trefoil mouth, it is not hard to see why the shape endured so resolutely throughout the centuries. Height: 4 5/8 inches. Condition: Excellent, unrestored. Provenance: Ex. Lohrey collection, Frankfurt, Germany. A prominent collector of ancient ceramics, rather than focusing on one particular culture Mr. Lohrey went after only the best examples from across antiquity. Buying throughout the 1980’s – 1990’s, with his keen eye Lohrey formed one of the leading German collections of its type.
