Seller: artancientltd (9,489) 99.4%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 390956015842 Material: Terracotta, Original or Reproduction: Original, Culture: Roman, Details: A particularly fine and nicely potted ancient Roman barbotine ware skyphos, dating to the 1st century AD. With typical orange colour, the skyphos with flat base, wide body and two vertical ring handles. The walls decorated in applied barbotine fashion with sinusoidal motif, applied dots on the ridge below. A particularly nice example, with its symmetry, delicate potting and excellent state of preservation. So-called barbotine wares were fashionable in the western provinces of the Roman empire, the decoration being applied to the vessel in a way that is often likened to decorating a cake - the wet slip was applied to the surface through a nozzle. The result are quite striking and sharply decorated vessels. Diameter: Handle-handle 5 3/4 inches. Condition: Intact, unrestored. Provenance: From the private collection of a European dealer, acquired in the 1990s from the European market. Compare a barbotine ware skyphos currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of art.
