Apulian Gnathia-Ware Trefoil Oinochoe

 

Apulian Gnathia-Ware Trefoil Oinochoe

An ancient Apulian Greek black glazed Gnathia-ware trefoil oinochoe, a wine pitcher, decorated in added white with hanging garlands, rosettes, and bands of dots and tongues.

Gnathia, Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 330-280 BC.
Height: 6 1/2 in. (16.5 cm).
Intact.

The output and quality of the Greek colonial potters working in Apulia increased greatly following the Peloponnesian War when Attic exports fell off sharply. Apulian craftsmanship is an amalgamation of the Ionian (Athenian, Attic) conventions, and Doric (western colonial Greek) styles, with a noticeable native Italian aesthetic.

Formerly with Donna Jacobs Gallery, Birmingham, Michigan, 1984; subsequently in the George R. Francoeur Trust, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, #342.
