Seller: artemisgallerylive (37) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263828051647 LOT 23Seller's Estimate: USD 500 - 750 Magna Graecia, Southern Italy, Eastern Apulia/Gnathia, ca. 370 to 325 BCE. A wheel-thrown thistle mug with a petite tiered foot, a bulbous body that tapers to a wide neck, a flared rim, and an applied bifurcated ring handle. The body is detailed with dozens of thin, pattern-molded ribs, red pigment along the foot and shoulder, and a yellow vine with densely-congregated berries wrapping from one side of the handle to the other. Scattered areas of faint silvery iridescence complement the black-glazed surfaces, making this a wonderful and attractive example of Gnathian craftsmanship! Size: 2.9" W x 4.75" H (7.4 cm x 12.1 cm). Gnathia ware is named for the site where it was first discovered - the Apulian site of Egnathia. The black glaze ware is traditionally decorated with floral motifs in red, white, or yellow hues. Scholars believe that its production most likely was centered around Taras, with primary workshops in Egnathia and Canosa. The quantity and quality of Greek colonial Apulian potters increased significantly following the Peloponnesian War when Attic exports dramatically decreased. Apulian artistry demonstrates influences of Ionian (Athenian, Attic) conventions, as well as Doric (western colonial Greek) styles, with a palpable native Italian aesthetic.
