Seller: artemisgallerylive (36) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263842011445 LOT 12BSeller's Estimate: USD 900 - 1,400 Ancient Greece, Mycenaean, Late Helladic III, ca. 1425 to 1100 BCE. A squat wheel-thrown pyxis which rests upon a slightly rounded base adorned with three red-painted concentric rings. The bi-chrome vessel is defined by a bulbous body, a rolled shoulder, a short neck, a flared and rolled rim, and a trio of petite strap handles applied equidistantly around the upper body. Repeating registers of red-orange concentric bands and undulating wave-form motifs decorate the body and neck, with similar hues embellishing the strap handles and rim, all applied atop a buff-tan slip. Size: 3.25" W x 2.625" H (8.3 cm x 6.7 cm). This period is so named for the palace at Mycenae, famed in Homeric legend as the opulent seat of King Agamemnon. Excavations at the palace at Mycenae revealed an elite and long-lasting society with a great deal of wealth. This extended to the workshops of artisans who produced pottery like this vessel both for use in Greece and throughout the Mediterranean world; shiploads of similar jars went out as far as the Levant and Spain, carrying oil, wine, and other commodities.
