Seller: artancientltd (9,497) 99.2%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 291942701365 An exceptional ancient Mycenaean pottery cup, dating to 1500 – 1350 BC. Surely one of the finest examples of its type; simple but superbly executed, this delicate cup is beautifully potted and painted. Composed of fine clay, sitting upon a ring base, the body broadening dramatically into a trumpet-like mouth, the inside decorated with a series of concentric bands which accentuate the flaring shape. Perfectly formed, it is remarkable that this vessel could be so small, yet at the same time so refined. Every element of this exquisite little cup has been carefully thought through, the shape and decoration seem to meld together, complementing one another. The wavy bands decorating the outer body appear as stylised bands of seaweed, drifting in the ocean. We can see how the ceramic artisans of ancient Mycenae were inspired by the natural world around them. Height (to rim only): 1 ¾ inches. Maximum diameter: 3 ¾ inches. Condition: Very good, two minute chips on rim. Provenance: Ex. Swiss private collection, acquired 1970’s. Authenticity All items are unconditionally guaranteed to be Authentic as described.
