Seller: artemisgallerylive (36) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263839702806 LOT 26ASeller's Estimate: USD 1,200 - 1,500 Magna Graecia, Southern Italy, near Ignazia, Apulia, ca. 325 BCE. A beautiful pottery pouring vessel known as an epichysis, possessing a characteristically spool-shaped base with a slender spout and a tall, arching loop handle with applied matching lion heads adorning the areas where the upper handle end meets the spout. The lower body has a central black-glazed band embellished with concentric white lines and yellow groups of berries. The upper rim is decorated with a radiating, white-painted border which surrounds a golden-yellow motif of sinuous vines with ivy leaves and similar bunches of berries, all beneath a stippled ring and additional white-painted stripes surrounding the neck. Areas of faint silvery iridescence complement most of the black-glazed surfaces with only two areas of the lower body and the underside of the base being unglazed. Size: 3.5" W x 6.375" H (8.9 cm x 16.2 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.
