Diameter: 8 in. (20 cm).
Intact.

The Leafless Group refers to the work of a number of Attic black-figure vase painters of the first decades of the 5th century so named because of the stripped branches used to fill the background on the many wine cups that they painted. Most of the figural scenes painted are Dionysiac in subject matter
