Seller: artemisgallerylive (37) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263828051443 LOT 20Seller's Estimate: USD 2,500 - 3,500 Ancient Greece, Athens, ca. 5th century BCE. An elegant Attic lekythos of a slender form and decorated via the black-figure technique. This is an example of a classic lekythos form, with tall, cylindrical body, dramatically angled shoulder leading to a tubular neck, and a cup-shaped mouth with a flat rim - all upon a circular foot. The iconographic program features three Greek warriors wielding spears and shields - the two on the left attacking the opposing warrior on the right. Details of their draped garments, helmets, and shields are finely incised. What's more, faint remains of circular and linear fugitive painted details adorn the shields. A band of tapered frets grace the shoulder and dotted and linear bands adorn the upper and lower sections of the body respectfully. An elegant example replete with fine artistry and technique. Size: 6.125" H (15.6 cm) Lekythoi were used for storing oil employed for a wide variety of purposes in the Classical World. While larger examples were usually designated for keeping olive oil, relatively smaller more delicate examples were reserved for the bath to store precious unguents of sweet and floral aromas. This beautiful vessel was most likely created for an elegant lady's toilette.
