Seller: artemisgallerylive (36) 100%, Location: Louisville, Colorado, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 263731958181 LOT 14Seller's Estimate: USD 1,200 - 1,800 Ancient Greece, Mycenaean Period, Late Bronze Age, ca. 14th to 13th century BCE. A lovely wheel-thrown pottery cup with a planar base, a slightly corseted body, a flared rim, a deep interior cavity, and a high-arching handle. The body is decorated with three horizontal bands of red-slip triangular, chevron, and zigzag motifs atop a cream ground, with a series of pinstripe bars separating each section as well as embellishing the base and rim interior. The curved handle displays a series of red stripes arranged perpendicularly while its underside is unadorned. With its bulging body and uncomplicated form, this mug is emblematic of this fascinating and almost-mythical period, immortalized in the Iliad and the Odyssey. Size: 4" W x 4.1" H (10.2 cm x 10.4 cm). The Mycenaean period is so named for the palace at Mycenae, famed in Homeric legend as the opulent seat of King Agamemnon - excavations there 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 mug 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.
