Seller: postvorta (2,895) 100%, Location: Boulder, Colorado, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 323757253285 ______________You are bidding on a superb Greek Apulian Bell Krater displaying a style from Southern Italy, used around 340 BCE. The Krater is painted in the red-figure technique with a nude male confronting a seated female on one side and two youths discussing on the reverse. Unfortunately, this piece was purchased as an authentic piece of art but a 2015 TL test proved it was likely created for the mid 20th century tourist trade; it was meticulously crafted and painted to resemble the real thing and even broken and repaired in several places to help authenticate its "age." This is quite possible the best forgery I have encountered, granted the spotted rabbit on the tray is a bit unprecedented. Authentic Greek bell kraters routinely sell for $5k and above making this is the perfect opportunity to own an excellent fairly priced display piece, study model, or movie prop! outside rim diameter is approximately 13" / height is just over 13.25" | weight is 5 pounds and 7 ounces NOTE: There is a large chip in the foot and extensive broken and repaired areas around the rim (see photo 09). There is a TL drill hole on the bottom foot, side of handle, main body, and under the rim.SOLD 100% AS IS / AS Pictured Shipping is a flat $50 via FedEx Ground with full insurance (Double Boxed)_____________ Material: Pottery
