Seller: artemisgallerylive (36) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263811660356 LOT 19ASeller'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, a cup-shaped mouth with a flat rim, and a single handle joining the neck to the shoulder of the vessel - all upon a circular foot. Stylized palmettes with sinuous vine-like tendrils grace the shoulder and two registers of Greek key/meander motifs adorn the upper and lower sections of the body. Additionally, a band of fret marks separate the shoulder from the neck. An elegant example replete with fine artistry and technique. Size: 8.625" H (21.9 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. Provenance: ex-estate of Professor Emery E.
