A lovely wheel-thrown pottery lidded lekanis of an exceptional form. The bottom half of the vessel is comprised of a wide lipped basin decorated in a lustrous black glaze, all sitting upon a petite footed base. The ornate lid is decorated with black wave motifs around the exterior rim, with a lipped tondo at the center, and a pair of "lady of fashion" faces in classic red-figure presentation. A triple Herakles-knot handle arches above both female figures and the central tondo, with creamy white pigmentation further embellishing areas of the faces and radiating designs in-between. A gorgeous vessel with lovely decorations and sophisticated style! Size: 4.625" W x 5" H (11.7 cm x 12.7 cm). Lidded lekanides were cosmetic containers, often given by fathers to brides on their wedding day. The lady of fashion motif complements this - often thought to represent a young woman on her wedding day. Each lady wears a kekryphalos hairstyle, earrings, and a beaded necklace. This vessel has a very interesting iridescent patina that gives it a sparkling appearance. Provenance: ex-Harvey Sarner collection, Palm Springs, California, USA, acquired in 2001 at Harlan J.
